Do the mid 2011 mac mini computers use odd hdd sensors like the iMac

As we know, i am a computer tech on my own time(usually as a favor) with a 3.5 year old macbook pro, which still works, and has been upgraded and still shows its age no matter what i try

Because i REFUSE to support apple's techs with a iMac's harddrive IF it fails because of how it senses the temperature, and because of this, i am considering the mac mini

Doe this have the bullcrap HDD sensor in it on the latest revision?

No it doesn't. In the older version it did but the Mac Mini Mid 2011 with thunderbolt it does not have any sensors on the HDD.

No it does not! I have swapped hard drives and even installed a second SSD and found no issues or proprietary issues!


You should also watch your language and there is no real issue with the iMac sensor for anybody with a little skill!
