Get more speed when you add an SSD to your Mac mini with Upper Drive Bay populated.
Running out of storage space in your Mac mini or looking to improve performance with an SSD? Now you can add a second 9.5mm or smaller 2.5" SATA Hard Drive or Solid State Drive to your 2011 & 2012 Mac mini.
NOTE: A small number of 2012 units were shipped with the drive mounted in the upper drive bay rather than the more typical lower bay. If you have a 2012 model, you will want to determine the configuration of your Mac mini's drives prior to ordering. To do this, open Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.app and click on the grey drive icon at the left-edge of the window. If you see "Lower" after the "Connection ID" at the bottom-left corner of the window, you may proceed using the standard installation instructions. If you see "Upper" then you have a special configuration which will need additional components.
- Add a second internal drive
- Supercharge performance with an SSD
