    Need help choosing an SSD
    I have an old Mac Mini (2006) and I'm looking at getting an SSD so I can record some music on it.

    Here is the model:
    Mac mini "Core Duo" 1.66 Specs (Early/Late 2006, MA206LL/A*, Macmini1,1, A1176, 2108) @

    I know almost NOTHING about SSDs so any advice is welcome.

    Have used four brands of SSDs over the last couple of years. best by far are OWXCand OCZ Vertex. As your Mini uses an original SATA 1.5G/ps drive, do not spend extra money buying faster SATA 11 or SATA 111 models as they will be throttled back to SATA speed.

    here is one from OWC:-

    Be a little patient ~ all volunteers here.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    (harry means SATA II or SATA III, Roman numerals for "two" and "three" respectively). In addition to his recommendations, the Samsung 840 series are well-regarded also.
