        looks good and clean, do you have any space under the mac for cooling? or just hoping it don't fry...

            Looks like either Front Row or Amp.

              The Mini sticks out just enough so that air gets in the front and there's room in the back for exhaust...though I'm sure it gets pretty toasty (haven't tested yet).

              I'm using Front Row. Works just fine, but I'm struggling to find a good GPS solution. So far, I've used MS Streets & Trips with Parallels and I've just traded that in for CoPilot.
