Mac Mini 2009 Hacks

Sep 20, 2016  Early-2009 (or newer) Mac Mini or white MacBook Of course, just because it’s possible doesn’t mean it’s straightforward, which is why developer Colin Mistr. I had a new iMac delivered the next day and put the 2009 on the shelf for two years. Last fall I took the busted one in to the Apple Store and found the problem was a bad video card, a cheap fix. I then replaced the optical drive with an OWC data doubler 1TB SSD and the 2009 Mac now performs better than my newer Mac. Late 2009 Mac mini models have the internal components enclosed in a tiny and elegant 2.9 lb, 6.5 inch square, two inch tall case with a built-in speaker and an external power supply. All Mac mini systems ship without a display, keyboard, or mouse, but numerous Apple and third-party options are available.

We’re pretty sure Apple decided to implement an IR sensor in their Mac Mini line simply to mock the user. For those who are unaware, the built in sensor only works with the standard Apple Remote; unless you happen to have a programmable PDA or similar you’re SOL. An alternative solution would be to install a USB IR receiver. But then your beautiful Mac Mini is forced to sit alongside an ugly black box. Why not have the best of both worlds? [SqueeZe] wrote an (almost) entirely non invasive tutorial for placing a USB IR receiver inside his Mac Mini. Reminds us of a certain hack a while back, but the objective was to get the IR receiver outside of the unit rather than inside. Different people, different worlds.
