Sidebar : Check out this step-by-step guide to replacing HDD with SSD[^] -- you basically rip the entire Mac Mini apart and rebuild it.


That's almost as bad as replacing the drive on my 2005 iBook (so old it had a PowerPC G4, not an Intel processor). That was really complete disassembly - with more bolts & screws than I care to think about - and of many different sizes & thread types (I still get flashbacks...).

My 2008 MacBook Pro was simple in comparison - the main drive was in the battery compartment, so could be replaced very simply. Even replacing the CD-ROM drive with an SSD was extremely simple (granted, I'd bought a suitable bracket to mount the SSD).
Java, Basic, who cares - it's all a bunch of tree-hugging hippy cr*p
