Item specifics



Country of Manufacture:

United States

What we have here is a Mac Mini in the shell of an Apple Disk II (or Disk ][) 5.25'' disk drive. 

I built this back in 2009 as a fun hack when I noticed that an old Mini stacked up so nicely on top of the old Apple II drive. After posting photos online, my little project was picked up by several tech blogs and other sites. For instance:

<a href="http://gizmodo.com/5159104/mac-mini-inside-an-apple-disk-ii-case">Gizmodo</a>
<a href="https://www.macworld.com/article/1138982/Builder_mods_Mac_mini_for_Apple_Disk__drive_case.html">MacWorld</a>
and many more.

I'm cleaning out my office now, and since I've moved on to other hacks, the Mini Disk II is up for sale. You could be the new owner of this unique machine, or use it as the starting point of your own case mod.

The package includes:
- 1.5Ghz Intel Core Solo Mac Mini with 2G RAM, ca.2006.

- 5.25'' Disk II floppy disk drive case, ca.1978.

- Power supply.
- DVI-VGA converter.
