I am getting rid of my Mac Mini Car Computer and am offering a ridiculous setup at a discounted price. This setup was incredible in my car and I am only ditching it because I need money for a new laptop. I am sorry to see this go!
Please read the following in full to see the incredible deal you will be getting.
Apple Mac Mini
1.66 Intel Core Duo Processor
512 MB DDR2 SDRAM
80GB Serial ATA Hard Drive
Built-In Airport Extreme
Now here comes the best part:
1. For all you Mac Mini Car Application lovers, this computer has already been painstakingly disassembled and the power button has been removed for placement on your dashboard as you install the unit. For those of you that do not know the significance of this offhand, look at the pictures on the TunerTricks blog here:
I have done the same thing and it took me more than 4 hours to carefully disassemble the MM and move proper wiring around.
2. This bundle will also include the Carnetix CNX-P1900, with the MacPac cord application kit. I have not damaged the power cord for the Mac Mini like so many others had to do when hard-wiring the power supply for the MM in the car; I waited for Carnetix to put out this wiring kit and it paid off big time. Before, you had to destroy your power cord when hard-wiring the MM in the car, but this kit provides and extra cable so you do not have to.
MacPac Wiring Kit:
3. Griffin PowerMate Control Knob is also included. The PowerMate is an ideal controller for the Mac Mini because of FrontRow. FrontRow is Mac's version of a Media Center Interface, making it simple to browse your entire music, video, and photo collection with only the need for a clickable wheel. I used this to control my Mac Mini in my A4 and it was as intuitive and simple as using the radio. Ideal for minimal distractions while driving!
Apple FrontRow Interface:
4. Bonus: S-Video out adapter for Mac Mini will be included. This is a $20 adapter to get the video signal to be easily read for your display in your car.
This kit is literally as plug-and-play as it gets. Only a screen is needed to complete the project, which is only not included because I used my Nav screen in my Audi A4, otherwise I would be including it as well.
All you need to do is connect to ignition, ground, battery and video screen. There is simply no easier way to put a Mac Mini into your car as you are buying everything together.
Here is what I paid for everything:
Mac Mini: $846.94
MacPac Wiring Kit: $30.82
S-Video Cable: $20.14
Griffin PowerMate: $47.69
So, the theoretical total for this would then be: $1063.53, not counting all the work that went into purchasing this individual units, prepping the Mac Mini for easy installation of the power button, etc, etc, etc....
I am asking for $899 for this all in one kit, insured ground shipping included to the continental US.
I believe everything was explained here in great detail, but please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have for me about anything involving this kit. I am looking to give this to a good home as I really did love it and hate to part with the setup. All equipment is in pristine, like new condition. Mac comes with original box and all parts come with their respective documentation.
I will accept PayPal only for this purchase, shipping only to a Confirmed and Verified shipping address.
Please feel free to respond to the thread, or PM me for any further details.
