The Mac mini Core Duo 1.66 GHz (Late 2006) was a quiet speed-bump of Apple's first Intel Mac mini. This mini was released in September 2006.
This Mac mini offers two RAM slots, enabling a maximum of 2 GB of RAM using two PC2-5300 1 GB RAM Chips. If your mini's RAM isn't already maxed out, adding more RAM is a cost-effective way to improve performance. Need more storage? You can install a massive and fast 500 GB 7200 RPM SATA hard drive for more headroom. If you don't have DVD-burning capability already, it's easy to add a blazing-fast 8x SuperDrive to your mini.
