The new Mac Mini does not allow the expansion of RAM


You only have to wait a few days after some relevant new device hits the market for the guys at iFixit to ruthlessly gut it to show us all its embarrassments. His latest victim has been the new Mac Mini, the renewal of the mini PC that Apple introduced a few days ago.

After the entire disassembly process there are some quite striking details, especially in relation to the limitations that Apple has introduced to prevent the expansion of this small computer, making things really difficult for users who want to change or improve a component.

In the images we can see how the company uses a BGA processor soldered to the board, so far it is something quite common in these very compact systems, however the RAM memory has also been soldered, so it eliminates at once any possibility of expansion, having to go through the box and buy another superior model if we fell short.

The hard drive itself can be changed, although first you have to remove the casing and various parts using T6 Torx security screws, so you will need a special screwdriver.
