Did you know the new Apple Mac Mini has enough space inside to install an extra second hard drive! The Apple Mac mini is a small power packed complete computer, simply add a monitor, wireless keyboard and mouse and you have a advanced  desktop to work with. And if you could just add another hard drive inside the already compact Mac mini – nothing could be better.

Apple Mac Mini already comes powered with a 500GB (5400-rpm) hard drive, which is configurable to 750GB (7200-rpm) hard drive (2.5GHz model also configurable to 256GB solid-state drive or 256GB solid-state drive and 750GB (7200-rpm) hard drive, only at the Apple Online Store). The iFixit team performed a tear down of the Mac Mini and found enough space to install a second hard drive.
