How about one with a port replicator. The bigger tower can have more ports and drives. Then if you want to take your mini with you in the car or to use in the home theater you can just slide it out.

dear lord, i'd never do that to a mini.

you have no idea how annoying those apple mini towers are in data centers. they're impossible to stack. the next idiot who brings one in to try to rack it is going to get a swift treatment with tin snips that will make it stackable.


I have to rack Cisco, Sun, Lancope, Dell, HP, IronPort, etc. Granted a G5 Burns up a few "U's", but....
Why don't you just buy the proper rack for your datacenter and deal with it?

The vertical rack kit is an affordable $39.95

Wouldn't it be more fitting to call these "PowerMac-styled" cases?? The iMacs are G5's and look nothing like that. Smile
