My mac mini was running horribly slow... I thought there was some major hardware failure somewhere and my hard drive didn't sound all that healthy (whatever that means). I figured I would try an SSD and if that didn't help then at least I'd have an extra SSD around for the next computer I purchased.
I was nervous... those computers are built more like a laptop and not what I was used to. It was actually pretty fun! I created a well lit space and took my time step by step. I also took a big piece of paper and drew a circle with the step number in it for the screws so I knew which step they came from. That helped a ton!!! Now my computer runs so much better - - - than it did brand new! I am blown away. Thank you, iFixit! And now I have some really great tools for the next adventure I take with you... and there will be more.
I think tracking the parts for each step was a big help. I took a piece of paper and drew a circle for each step with the step number and kept the parts and screws in that space. There are lots of very similar parts and you have to put it back just right so keeping all that separate is a huge help. Other than that just go slow and use good lighting.
