Mac Mini using a 3.5" Drive on the Internal IDE
"The Apple Computer Mac mini is a cute little box with a fast processor and a slow performing hard drive. I thought it would be interesting to see how performance might be improved if I installed a 3.5" 7200 RPM hard drive on the ATA100 IDE bus of a Mac mini 1.42GHz. The Mac mini in these tests has 512MB of memory installed and I have removed the internal DVD and 2.5 inch hard drive in order to attach an adapter that allows the Mac mini to accept one or two 3.5 inch IDE hard drive(s) instead."

I hate to crush your suspense.... but guess what, it's faster with the 7200. Go figure.

The article is really interesting in just how far someone will go to adapt a Mac mini and have it host for peripheral options.
Very interesting indeed

FUGLY! He should've made a small enclosure for the drive underneath the mini.
