Ok I just bought my first Mac and I need some help. It's a Mac mini 2006 and I want to upgrade it. Is there any possible way to upgrade the ram to 4th or is 2really the max? Also as far as the hard drive goes I would like to upgrade internally to 500 gb or 1t. Can anyone give me advice on what hardcover to go with and roughly how much they cost. If you have any links that would be great as well!

thanks

Looks like 2gb is the max.

The processor is also upgradeable in that model. If you are going to crack it open for a HD exchange, might as well swap the processor out. I believe the T7600 2.33ghz is the max for this model.
