2011 Mac Mini Gets Innards Fondled

by


I know I am not the only one that has ever looked at a new gadget like the Mac Mini that was updated this week and wondered what it was like on the inside. Thankfully, we don’t have to void our own warranties on the new and cool gear on the market thanks to iFixit. As they usually do with all new and popular gadgets, the geeks there have taken the new Mini and torn it apart for us.

It’s very impressive to see how well packed the machine is, and with the removal of the optical drive, there’s even space for a second storage drive inside. The machine appears to be easy to take apart too. That is assuming you have the correct tools for the job.

You can tell the rig sips power when you see the tiny power supply that keeps the machine running. The little mainboard is double-sided to get all the chips needed for the functionality onboard. The Intel CPU is on the bottom and several controller chips for various IO ports are on the top.

You can see a few pictures of the new Mac Mini’s insides in the gallery above, but will need to head over to iFixit to check out all the gory details.
