Can I Upgrade The Mac Mini Hard Drive And Memory Myself?


Is it possible to swap out the hard drive and RAM in a Mac mini or do I have to take it to a professional?

The new Mac mini has a removable bottom panel that can be easily twisted off to gain access to the memory slots. As for upgrading the hard drive, that's a bit trickier. OWC has videos that detail how to upgrade the drive while also mentioning the tools required for the job.
