Mac mini Faceplate Mod
Tuesday September 6, 2005 2:43 PM EST

MacMod's Great Mod Challenge has inspired another Mac mini mod. This time we have the Mac mini Faceplate Mod. The top of the Mac mini's case has been replaced with a clear piece of 1/8" Plexiglass. There are five 3mm LEDs wired underneath the Plexiglass to light up the top of the case. All the LEDs are wired to a USB cable for power. The Modder has also moved the power button from the back of the Mac mini to the top of the case. He also cut out a custom-made Apple logo from the Plexiglass to be used as the power button. Pretty groovy!

Brian writes: "We have all seen the Mac minis. Having one on your desk is already a focal point. It's a powerful computer in a small package. In the past few years I think Apple's designs for all their computers have been a step above the ordinary PC, especially now with the Mac mini, eMac, iMac, and Power Mac. To me there's only one thing missing, personal customization with the Mac mini. I mean, the iPod mini has 4 different colors, the normal iPod has the U2 edition along with the standard white. But when you buy a Mac mini, that's it, that's what you have, an attractive machine, but everyone who has one has the EXACT same looking one as you. When this happens my brain goes to work, I don't like being like everyone else so this is where my new project got its start."
