Building The Ultimate Mac mini: Series Introduction

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be putting together a new video series called, “Building The Ultimate Mac mini.” This series revolves around upgrading a Mac mini as much as possible to create a Mac that’s almost better than any of Apple’s build-to-order minis. Let’s take a look at some of the parts that we’ll be using.

Here are the parts used in this series:

Of course, you don’t need these exact parts, but this will give you a good place to start looking if you’d like to follow along with the series. To put it into perspective, the Mac mini that we will be building totals out to $1,243 including all parts. If you wanted to order a Mac mini from Apple with roughly the same specifications (no performance difference, just dual 240GB SSDs) you’d have to shell out $1,899. That’s a difference of $656!Save yourself some money, buy the parts, and follow along.

Obviously, the DIY method of building a great computer is the winner here. So stay tuned for this upcoming series. I will be posting more videos from the series over the coming weeks. I’d like to give a huge “Thank you” to iFixit and Kingston for sponsoring this video series and providing all of the required parts.

I hope you enjoy this, and please, if you’d like me to do other “build videos” leave your suggestions in the comments section.
