New Mac Mini Torn Apart, Laid Bare
As expected, Apple's new Mac Mini has received the teardown treatment at the hands of the guys over at iFixit.
The Mac Mini received a welcome upgrade earlier this week, bringing with it a new unibody aluminum case and beefed up specs. Teardown experts over at iFixit managed to get their hands on one of the new $699 computers, and as ever, wasted no time in tearing it apart.
A twist of the Mac Mini's new base quickly gave the iFixit team access to its internals, and the iFixit team found a number of interesting points.
Thankfully for those who want to update the basic $699 model without paying Apple's premium upgrade prices iFixit discovered that memory upgrades are a refreshingly simple task: just pry two clips open.
