This is exactly why we need to get the model info straight BEFORE answering any questions!
- This Mac-Mini is not from 2007...but from 2005!
- It's maximum ram is 1 gigabyte (so no "at LEAST" 6 gig ram upgrade)
- OS 10.5.8 is the newest OS version it can run (which it is already running)
And since this is a 2005 Mac-Mini...it has a PPC G4 cpu...not an Intel cpu (which would be much better).
Finally...I've actually purchased one of these about 2 years ago for $50 bucks (but $90-$100 is probably closer to it's actual value.
p.s. Regarding the 256gig SSD. You could probably install one (this Mac-mini has an ATA/IDE drive not SATA)...but would you really want to install a $250 SSD into a $100 computer??
