Is there a 'unibody' Mac mini teardown manual?

We're looking into getting a new unibody Mac mini soon. We wanted to know if the new thicker hard drives would fit. Does anyone know if there is a unibody teardown manual that might have this information?

Is this a good question?

From a visual standpoint it looks like these use 9.5mm drives from the factory. These may take 12.7mm drives, but I'd check with a deck of cards to be sure unless you have a spare 12.5mm drive you can quicky use. If you'd rather be safe stick to 7-9.5mm drives. However, you need a drive with a SATA II compatibility mode and cannot use a Fixed III drive.

Follow this guide to change the hard drive.

Thank You nicksmacandpchelp!

The current Mac mini is MC270*. Is there much difference between it and the A1347?


+ The MC270 is the A1347.


OK, THANKS for clearing that up.
