You are limited with what you can do with them. For example, you can't put both hard drives in one of them. There isn't enough space. Similarly, I think the RAM is soldered onto the motherboard.

You could use one of the hard drives as an external one - either by taking it out and putting it into a separate case or via target disk mode:

Finally, some applications - rare ones like some 3D applications - allow you to use the processing power of computers in a network collectively.



Yeah, they dont like to make it easy :lol:

'14 models onwards have the ram fixed, some before that are changeable. Same with other hardware. There are plenty of sites online that list which models/years have swapable parts. Also the systems can share workloads, it doesnt double the power of a machine.

I'm from a time when a pocket calculator was advanced and having used one since 1999 i see computers as all salesman hype and very over rated.
