Opening the MicroNet miniMate
Tuesday May 24, 2005 12:01 AM EST

Brendan, a member of our forums has posted some pictures and information on how to open the MicroNet miniMate. With the miniMate's case open you'll be able to upgrade or change out the internal 3.5-inch hard drive. The bottom of the miniMate is very similar to the bottom of the Mac mini's case and only requires a small screwdriver to open it. So there is no need for a putty knife this time! Brendan - "Insert small screwdriver into the vent and hook the small tab seen in the next photo. Push outward on the screwdriver while pulling apart the unit and repeat on the other side." Another tip is to make sure you route the wires around an internal post before pressing the two halves of the miniMate's case back together. This will prevent them from getting crimped or damaged.

We posted our initial impressions of the miniMate a few weeks ago and are working on a full review. It should be noted that opening the miniMate will void its warranty.
