Well, now there's mini Pal, the perfect companion to your Mac mini from AcomData. Mini Pal provides your Mac mini with more storage capacity, more device connections, and more data protection with PushButton Backup."

The logos on top don't bother me. I figure the mini is gong to cover it anyways. The ones one the front are ridiculous. What's with that big LED on the front? It looks like a jewel on a guitar amplifier.

Ya, that LED is pretty obnoxious when mated with the mini.

That's the button for the one-touch backup. This unit looks like the same box unveiled by macway sometime back (MiniPartner):

So the button is lighted? I think there was a review of the mini Partner somewhere. Confused

I wanted to thank lojo for the tip this morning. She mentioned that Compusa was carrying them. I did a search and came up with the 160GB model.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Haha, first thing I saw. I don't mind logos, but if I wanted a product to be badged I'd watch NASCAR or go shop at A&F or AE...

Looks pretty nice though, that one touch backup would be cool if OS X didn't have cron and asr builtin and then you could download psync to use instead of asr if you wanted to.

Man... they're just crankin' the matched drives out like crazy, huh? How many brands make these now?

I like the one-touch back-up, though. I've never used anything like that. What do you do, mark certain things to be part of the back up, and then just push the button any time you feel it needs to run?

Cover up a logo with another logo? Is that actually manufactored as a sticker or would you have to do it yourself?

Its just a Mini Cooper bonnet badge. I wouldn't actually put one on my machine but if I had to make a choice I'd prefer it over some of the less aesthetic logos I've seen on some of these boxes.
