Extra hard drive port available on all models?


Thank you for the wonderful teardown guide.

I have a question regarding the availability of the extra hard drive port: is this available on both mac mini non-server models, or just the higher-end model?

Thanks again!

There is a (very special) SATA connector on the logic board, but it doesn't do anything for us as long there's no source for the required logic-board-to-SATA cable. Adding a second drive without this special cable isn't possible.
