Years ago I have my 1.66GHz(version 1,1?) Mini to my ex when I got a MBP. I have recently arranged a deal with her to trade a newer MB for the Mini so I can use the Mini as a Drobo/iTunes/Aperture server. The plan is max the memory and put a 30GB SSD into it and Snow Leopard.

I was curious if there are still faster CPU's available for it. If so where should I look and what should I be looking for?

Thanks!
