It's a neat idea, but I don't see the normal. everyday Mini user spending $700 to $800 on something to make thier Mac Mini a portable unit! Confused There are cheaper alternitives out there that cost a fraction of the price!!!

I agree. After shelling out $$ for the mini, display, and the case, you could've just gotten yourself a powerbook, no?

What's really strange is they have some sort of "Mounting Web" for the 12" PowerBook for another $100.

It's a nicer design than the other one, albeit a little less versatile. THe price is nuts... I guess they figure anyone who can afford an Apple display can afford the seven Franklins.

This really pisses me of...because it goes against the whole concept of the Mini...being small, and cheap. It's like buying a Mini Cooper and putting it inside the back of an Excursion.

Nah, it's like buying a mini-cooper and a kit-car-kit to make it look like a "mini Rolls" that costs more than the Cooper.

How exactly are you supposed to push the start button without opening the case Shocked

You reach through the open back and push the button.

I know it looks like there must be some kind of perspex panel in the back there, but AFAICT from the site there's nothing but a frame.
