Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Mac Builds a Shuttle, Shuttle Builds a Mac - Mac Builds a Shuttle, Shuttle Builds a Mac
Tue, January 11 2005 | 5:21PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Macworld began today, and for all the fans of Apple, there were a couple new announcements. The first is rather expected - Apple released the iPod Shuffle - basically a flash based MP3 player the size of a USB key. The next product to be released is the new Mac Mini. This is a computer the size of a MiniCooper, but all white, with wheels, and a nice 0-60 in 5 seconds acceleration. Okay... that's not exactly true. The Mac Mini is a $500 small form factor computer that looks like a 6.5" x 6.5" x 2" white marshmallow. Specs for the MacMini-MiniMac include a 1.4GHz CPU, 80GB HDD, CD/DVD ROM, and lowly Radeon 9200 onboard graphics. It would have been really cool if Apple had come up with a way of clustering these little MacMini's by stacking them on top of each other like bricks... ah well, at least it isn't called the iMini.

Shuttle on the other hand, has built what can only be described as and ode to Apple's Mac; the SN41G2 V3. There aren't any reviews of that model yet, but one site does test the Shuttle CR40 DVD+RW DL 16x Burner (probably a rebranded Mitsumi, or Toshiba drive). Samsung's 193P LCD screen would go well with either the Shuttle or MacMini-MiniMac.
