The solution requires a new motherboard?! You've got to be kidding me. That's no solution nor explanation.

I've had my mini9 since early 2009 - close to 4 years now. Recently it developed the same...

Well, you could do what I did and go to the hardware store and get a thin flexible piece of copper to put the mini on top of. Sponges up the excess heat well. HWmonitor confirms it keeps things...

I actually purchased the external (USB) DVD drive for my mini 9. Would it be possible to buy the OSX DVD and install it via the drive? If not, does the restore of the DVD image (to USB memory stick)...

I ordered the red/black Belkin case for my mini9 with the computer. I was a bit hesitant, but am now glad I did. The case is lightly padded and fits the mini9 perfectly. The only drawback is there's...

Re: Loose AC adapter connector?

I got a new mini 9 in January, and the fit on the AC adapter is tight. There's no play.

Then one should hope for such on a virgin machine. A used mini with lots of play is not surprising....

Re: When is hot too hot?

If I just listen to music, with the screen off most of the time, the processor runs very cool, between 30-35C.

With the mini certain compromises had to be made to keep the size and...
