New Mac mini unboxed and dissembled
Tuesday, March 3, 2008
Posted by: Brian

Our old friends over at MacMiniColo.net just posted a series of unboxing and disassembly photos of the new Mac mini. It's pretty much the same Mac mini you've come to love on the outside, with a few interesting twists on the inside. I would suggest that you head on over for the rest of the details. They did a nice job putting it together.

That looks just as easy to open and hack around in. Cool

Me too!

Oh, how I regret buying one a few months ago. I could've had one of these bad boys. Sad

The RAM and GPU locations have moved but other than that it looks identical to the last revision. The board looks like a darker blue also. Maybe its just lighting..

There's no little wire on the front anymore. That should settle those fans down. Wink

I could be wrong, but the heatsink for the GPU looks bigger to me. That could be one of the reasons for moving it.

Funny! 7450 was/is one of the G4 CPU revisions. The ones with L3.

I forgot to connect that once. My mini sounded like a small jet ready to take off.

I'd probably only replace the HDD with a SDD, probably 120-128GB one by OCZ or G-Skill.

...but first I would have to get the new mini Smile

Yeah, and I'm sure that someone's going to make use of that SATA connector to the optical drive.

And my putty knife hasn't been made redundant. Cool

Anyone know if this works or has already been used this to make an external SATA mod?
