Mac Mini Hits the Books
Monday July 18, 2005 1:10 AM EST

Two books about the Mac mini have recently been unveiled. The Mac mini Guidebook and Mac mini Hacks & Mods For Dummies.

The Mac mini Guidebook
"At 2 inches high and 6-1/2 inches square and with a price tag under $500, Apple's Mac mini provides just what you've been looking for, a viable, low-cost way to move to a Mac and its software without giving up all of your existing peripherals (keyboard, display, and mouse). Here to get you going is the definitive guide from award-winning technology writer David Coursey.

There's a lot involved in moving to a new OS: you have to transfer files, learn software, and unravel a new interface. David helps you with everything you need to get up to speed quickly. This book begins by explaining why, where, and when to get a Mac mini before launching into a thorough description of the Mac mini and its uses. David then shows you how to do on your Mac mini all the things you've been doing on your Windows machine, and how to use all the great software that is available only for Macs. And finally, David gets into more advanced topics such as troubleshooting your Mac mini and, for those who can't give up all of their PC-only applications, how to run Windows on it."

Mac mini Hacks & Mods For Dummies
"This book will progress from simple, inexpensive, and risk-free to extreme, costly, and somewhat risky-but-very-cool projects. The book starts with the basics like completing your Mac mini and adding your own options. Then the book goes into cracking open the Mac mini including content like avoiding damage, keeping track of the pieces, touring the inside, and putting the Mac mini back together again. Next on to modest mods such as making a Mac mini home theater, the Mac mini home appliance controller, building a Mac mini travel kit, and more. Then the book ends with maxi Mac mini mods. There is a degree of risk in these mods, and you will use a soldering iron. However, the adventurous and the careful can get good results, and even go back if they want."
