Starting at $499, the diminutive Mac mini - 2.5 inches tall, 6.5 inches wide, and 2.9 pounds - is expected to become Apple's bestselling computer, with projected shipments of 100,000 units a month. This book offers several projects - some easy, some more challenging - to help people tweak, modify, and transform a Mac mini. Modest modifications include creating a Mac mini home theater, an appliance controller, and a travel kit; other more complex (but very cool!) mods require wielding a soldering iron. This work offers detailed, illustrated step-by-step instructions - including how to open the Mac mini, keep track of pieces, and avoid damage - that enable even novice tinkerers to complete the projects.
