replace internal hard drive with SSD
Can I put a SSD into my Mac mini mid 2011. If so is there a preferred brand or special SSD to buy?
Released on July 21, 2011. Core i5 or Core i7 Processor. Thunderbolt. This unit is also used to run the Mac mini Server configuration.
There is no problem putting an SSD in that machine. I usually prefer the Samsung 850 EVO.
If you are running the latest version of Yosemite, use the command line and type: sudo trim force enable You don't need any 3rd party software anymore.
That should help extended SSD's lifecycle.
