The Mac mini Core 2 Duo 2 GHz brought the Core 2 Duo processor to the Mac mini. This mini was released in August 2007.
This Mac mini offers two RAM slots, enabling a maximum of 3 GB of RAM using one PC2-5300 1 GB RAM Chip and one PC2-5300 2 GB RAM Chip. 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.
