Default Apple Computer?

Other World Computer caters to Apple affecionados. I have a lil iMac Mini square.
it did everything I wanted.
BUT
with just 4 gb of Memory and a 500gb 5400 rpm HDD it wasn't fast...
so
I bought a 480 gb Solid State Drive and applied an additional 8 GB Memory to bring it to 12GB..
my boot time was cut by 2/3 and having shoehorned the new drive in next to the original drive, I've doubled my storage...

great instructions provided as well as an on site video on how its done prevented my ham fisted attempts to destroy this tiny computer.
great bargain
Great pricing, fast service and when I called with a technical question it was answered within three minutes of the Tech's picking up the phone..

All this for under 300 bucks..Fedex overnight included...

Let ME have it for half an hour. I'll bet it wouldn't "prevent" MY attempts to destroy it.

I dunno, it was intricate for my big hands, which shake sometimes from the stroke.
But patience and using tweezers actually was a great confidence builder.. I just knew I wasted the money and I'd break either the new parts, the computer itself or both...instead I get to do a victory lap..didn't see that coming. Lol

If it would have been me it would be in a million parts from my inability to put it together and my temper along with my 12 gauge would have taken over and blasted it.
Glad you got it done.

I'm just stubborn... My da once had a plumper in.. Given an estimate he exclaimed
"I know you have a family to feed, but can't they have pot roast instead of lobster and filet Mignons?" He then proceed to learn plumbing, which in turn led me to know what curse like a sailor means. Lol
It really really has stuck with me over the years..lol
