I know that there is a lot of loyalty to RunCore drives on here, but personally I replaced my 'stock' 160GB SATA HDD with a 60GB Vertex SSD
recently, with no problems at all. It was a direct 'swap'. (... and I did of course take the opportunity to increase the memory at the same time!)
Now I am sure a lot of users would regard this as a retrograde, or 'backward' step, but I was anxious to have a completely 'silent' Mini, with no moving parts), other than the Keyboard of course'!... and also to find out a bit more about these 'new fangled' devices... and you should see my performance Index scores now!
