When we took apart the 2011 Mac Mini, we found the optical drive conspicuously absent. While few are bemoaning Apple's efforts to hasten the death of physical media, we were saddened that Apple didn't make better use of the extra space. Fear not, we've got a solution to bring your Mini back to the space-efficiency you'd expect in an Apple product.

We've custom designed a kit with all the parts and tools needed to install a second hard drive inside your 2011 Mac Mini. This kit includes:

Proprietary SATA hard drive cable
Shock-absorbing mounting grommets
Mounting screws
Mac Mini Logic Board Removal Tool
26 Bit Driver Kit

Get your kit from iFixit today!

You're free to install whatever combination of SSDs and/or spinning drives suits your fancy. Both drives are recognized as a regular internal drive and performance is identical in either position.
