What??? You don't love the big-blue-light! Wink It really doesn't bother me that much. I'm just happy they didn't plaster a big miniStack logo on the front.


Well, I'm happy there's no logo on the front, but I'm wondering why they didn't put the power led at the same place as the mac mini (like my Belkin slim hub).

Quieter how, Jason? Is the difference fan noise or hard drive noise? Does the fan operate differently on the new model than on the old one?

I can't hear the HD but the fan is much quieter! Possibly because it uses a smart sensor to adjust it instead of the switch on the back like the 1st version.

That's good to hear. How often is it switching on?

So the difference b/w the V1 and V2 that the V2 has side ports?
Is that pretty much it?

That and the change in fan control appears to be it.

What is so special about the fan? Not as noisy or something?
But its the same height, correct?

Would this work with the New Intel mac mini?

just want to be sure before I put down money to get this.

Also, why does everything comes with firewire 400 ports? Is there any accessory that has at least a firewire 800 port.


thanks
