How different is the Model A1283 to the Late 2009 one?

I bought a 2.5"" 500GB 7200 SATA HDD to replace the one in my Mac mini (Late 2009). Checked the DIY videos here and realised they were all for the previous model A1283 a.k.a. early 2009. Googled around and couldn't find any DIY tutorial/specs for the later model. I wonder will there be any difference or surprise that will hinder my DIY operation? Thanks.

They are almost identical. The only parts that changed, to my recollection, are the logic board/processor speed (as bramley computers stated), RAM size, HD size, and I believe bluetooth board (but don't quote me on that one).

In other words, you will have zero problems using the early 2009 A1283 guides!

I don't think there was any internal changes except for the warmed over processor.

The teardown comparing prev rev & the new server version

I can't see anything leaping out as being different.
