    Default Swap a i5 motherboard into a core2 mini?
    Long story but I now have 2 mac mini's.

    I have a older core2 in the all aluminum housing and it has he built in CD drive. This is NOT one of the white top models.

    I also have the shorter new i5 mini.

    I would like to swap the motherboards so I can have the i5 with a CD drive.

    Anyone know if this is possible?

    It'd just be a better idea to buy a USB cd/DVD reader and hook it up to your new Mac mini, instead of risking damaging the new logic board by putting it I a older Mac mini.
