Mac Mini: the unveiling [pics]
Today, dear readers, I braved a raging blizzard and a broken toe to secure what I believe is the very last Mac Mini
in all of upstate New York. Believe you me, this brings me no pleasure for myself - I do it all for you. ;)
I just took a boatload of shots of the official unwrapping. There’s no easy way to upload a gallery of shots so I’ll keep adding as I go along. For you fellow late night Mac sickos (and everyone snowed in in the northeast US…), please don’t overkill on the ‘refresh’ button ‘cuz you’ll kill our servers. There’s plenty of Mac pr0n that awaits, so just take it easy, k?

Above: Box contents - Mini, software pack, power supply and cord, DVI to VGA adapter (plus iLife disk)
Below: Back of Mac Mini and power supply. Noting the power supply is pretty darn big itself, about a third of the width of the Mini itself and two thirds of the height.

Yeah, I knew it was tiny. Everybody knows it’s tiny. But damn… the thing is TINY!!
