  • How Much Would You Pay?

    I am working on developing a MacMini enclosure that can be mounted in your car and will allow for you to remove the MacMini and creates a "bracket" and mounting solutions so that the cables remain stationary.

    What would be a reasonable price that you would pay for something like this? It will be constructed of machined aluminum and metal.

    I'm more or less putting a feeler out to see if it'd be worth my time to market and sell.

    Let me know what you all think.

    Thanks,
    Russ

        $200 gonna be a bit expensive for a "bracket" I suppose. Around $100 should be okay to attract maximum number of buyers.

                It seems a bit bulky to me. Something like this one: http://www.hubbell.biz/products/minimounts/index.html or this one: http://www.plasticsmith.com/minitower with the docking/mounting functionalities as Russ said, would be great.

                  Hmm, I'll def. stick with a machined or aluminum enclosure I think. But I do like the idea behind the two that were given as links. I'm thinking however, that I'll enclose the entire thing and make the front flush with the front of the "sleeve". I'm still running into the power button issue. I'm not 100% sure how to work that.

                    I'd like to see it fit in a standard double din format to go easily into most cars and trucks...

                        I think it's too tall for a single din...

                          i believe the actual dimensions of a single din is 2 1/8" x 7 1/8" x variable depth

                            Mac Mini itself is slightly smaller than a single din device - so, no way the hight of the bracket gonna be single din in size.

                              That's okay, aluminum enclosure is fine if it's not too thick. Have a look at this - he is also working on the same sort of thing.
                              Cheers!!!
