I believe you meant to post under the upgrading forum index.

You can upgrade to an SSD or upgrade the RAM.
Not much else (within reason) can be done with these machines.

I am not sure, I have purchased a Late 2012 Core i7 and upgraded ram to 16 GB.

I would just like to know my options.

Perhaps if you asked more specific questions you'd get more responses.

At this point I'm uncertain as to whether you want to know hardware upgrade options or software options.

What can I do with it is pretty vague.

Minis make great media servers. I'd hook it up to a TV and turn it into a media server.

You are right. More options should post before we answer you.

If I didn't really have a use for it (such that I felt the need to ask on a forum "what can I do with it?"): I'd sell it.
