Question Mini 10v Keyboard and Aftermarket SSD Questions - 11-05-2009, 06:29 PM

I've been really happy with my Mini 9 with 64GB SSD and 2GB RAM running Mac OSX. A friend has offered to buy it from me at a really good price. I'm now thinking about a 10v--either hackintosh or I might leave Ubuntu on it.

Questions:
1. The Mini9 keyboard really can't be used for touch typing. Is the keyboard on the 10V large enough to type efficiently?

2. If I get a 10v, it will be with the cheapest hard drive option. Then, I'll swap in a fast SSD. Will any 2.5" form factor SATA SSD with the correct number of pins work?


Thanks.

1. I think the keyboard is comfortable for typing. Not too small, unless you have very large freakish hands.

2. The smallest HD option is a standard 160GB Sata 5400RPM. You should be able to swap it out for any standard 2.5" SATA drive/SSD.
