OK, this may seem weird but has anyone noticed the top of their Mac mini getting a yellowish-orange look?

Yes, it has a light orange tint. I just noticed it today when I changed its location to another room. There's no evidence of heat damage and the mini works fine. Maybe the sunlight coming in the window or the small amount of heat the mini generates caused the discoloring ? Strange!

For any of you that owned a Mac SE the same thing happened to the cream white case - only difference is that it usually took a very long time for it to happen.

Was it from aging or heat? I really think the sunlight is to blame in my case. The light coming in my home office over the winter months is VERY bright. The discoloration is just enough to notice a slight change. The lesson here is - keep your mini out of the direct sunlight and don't feed it after midnight! Laughing
