hi guys:

I need some help here. I am trying to upgrade my mini somehow. I was checking to see if I can upgrade the memory on thi mini, but that doesn't seem like an option at this point. Then I was thinking about upgrading the HD. I did something stupid with my usb ports and now I can not use them at all. So i have a wireless keyboard and mouse connected to this computer. any ides as to what can I upgrade on this mini. Any suggestions will be very appreciated. thanks.

The RAM on the PPC mini can be increased to 1gb.

I already have it to 1gb. Is there anything else I can upgrade on this mini, or it's better just to buy a new one with a new processor.

It's really not worth spending too much money upgrading a PPC mini.
You might be better off putting the upgrade cash to one side, selling the PPC one on ebay and then getting yourself a new Intel mini.

I agree with TheDoctor, not because of your mini being PPC, but because of the damaged usb ports. But if their outage doesn't cause a problem for you in the foreseeable future, you might consider a HD upgrade, especially if your mini came standard with a 4200rpm drive. The 5400rpm drives are cheap right now, and even the small capacity (100-120gb) 7200rpm notebook drives cost only about $100. Either will give you a nice speed increase over a 4200rpm drive.
