Hi Just aquired an Mac mini 1.83Ghz core 2 duo. Would I be able to put an SSD in this baby currently running snow leopard ?

Yes.  Try MacSales.com

https://eshop.macsales.com/shop/ssd/owc/mac-mini/2006-2007

If the above webpage is not your Mac mini, the MacSales website has other models listed.

If you’re not planning to upgrade the OS, you may need to install TRIM support manually.

Trim Enabler

Trim Enabler

 

But generally, MacSales.com SSDs are sufficiently overprovisioned such that they can provide good performance without enabling TRIM.  Then again, I have always enabled TRIM, even on MacSales.com SSDs  😀
