Someone had the bright idea to take a 2.5" to 3.5" IDE adaptor and add a 3.5" IDE hard drive to their Mac mini. Looks like the speed jump is pretty good. Anyone have an adaptor laying around to test this out as well?
Actually notebook optical drives (like you get in iMacs) and notebook hard drives have different connectors. There is an adaptor to do it though and its a straightforward pin mapping so no drivers required.
