You can't open your mini without voiding the warranty. But if that doesn't bother you, you can swap out your 30gb HD with a larger one.

Another option is to get an external hard drive. They work great and come in some SUPER sizes (up to 750gb).

apple store said i could upgrade whatever i wanted as long as i didn't damage anything and i brought it to the store in factory condition for warranty. Magnus-Moss Act states a manufacturer can not void your warranty for upgrades be it cars, electronics, or whatever.

But Apple will not replace the HD you put in if it will ever to fail. I'd go with a external HD btw.

When I upgrade the RAM in my iMac, I'm keeping the original RAM and if I take my Mac in for repair that's what's going back in the slots too...!!

It may not void the warranty but I'm not having them blame my 3rd Party RAM.
