I have another question that isn't really mine but comes from someone else in another Mac Forum that I frequent (ehMac.ca) asking if a T7700 would be compatible to upgrade from a Core Duo.

Anyone here know? Thanks.


NO!

There is a very specific list of what works and what doesn't. The T7200/T7400/T7600 are what work. The T7700 is the wrong socket, and wrong FSB.

Yes. Just type the text you want for the link, such as Amazon El Gato D/A TV Receiver, then highlight it.

Then click on the URL tag. In the [ url ] tag insert a = and the URL.

So the above link would be : Amazon El Gato D/A TV Receiver
or
Code:

Hi i'm new here.
I'm looking for an upgrade
my mini is

Mac mini (Mid 2007) - Technical Specifications
Processor 1.83GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Memory 2GB of 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM (PC2-5300)

Hard drive2 80GB 5400-rpm Serial ATA 120GB 5400-rpm Serial ATA

Graphics Intel GMA 950 graphics processor with 64MB of DDR2 SDRAM shared with main memory1

could you guys please recommend me stuff that I could upgrade and a link of a how to upgrade guide? I only replace the ram before, looking to upgrade harddisk and speed but I don't know what's the specific processer and hardisk to get.

thank you

The hard drive is up to you.

However, for the CPU you need to get either the T7200(2GHz), T7400(2.16GHz), or the T7600(2.33GHz). You must make sure that the chips are either PGA or BGA with pins added. BGA without pins is not going to work.
