NewerTech Mac Mini Accessories
Tuesday May 24, 2005

NewerTech Technology today announced a new line of Mac mini accessories. "The biggest appeal of the mini is its size," said Larry O'Connor, president of OWC. "Our new accessories take advantage of that size to improve its functionality. You can hide it under your monitor, sneak it under a desk or put it on a pedestal." The NuStand mini is a curved acrylic stand that allows you to slip the mini underneath and a monitor on top. The stand supports CRT displays up to 22 inches and LCD displays up to 30 inches. It retails for $39.95. The NuShelf mini attaches to the bottom of a desktop or shelf and allows you to slip the mini inside. It retails for $34.95. The NuClear mini is a perfectly cut 0.75-inch piece of acrylic plastic that raises your mini off the desk. It retails for $24.95. The NuBlue mini is the same perfectly cut acrylic base but with a cool blue glow, retails for $29.95. All models are shipping now expect for the NuBlue mini.

The one for under the desk is actually cool. All the other ones are a blatant rip off of the Plasticsmiths.

I'm curious how the under-the-desk one attaches. It does look pretty cool. One problem, sort of, would be that it might preclude any of the under-the-mini drive enclosures or hubs that would increase the height. But hey, under-desk mini.

Good point! I wonder if it uses screws or double sided tape?

The NuShelf mini would be perfect for an under the dash mount in a car install.

Actually, the price of acrylic plastic is very expensive right now, because the price of oil is high. I used to work in a glass shop cutting glass and plastic.

No doubt! What do you think would be a fair price?

US$30 sounds fair to me.

I wouldn't mind mounting one in my entertainment center. Anyone know how it mounts yet?
