New Mini mount debuts
H-Squared today announced that it has spun out its mount business into a new company, and unveiled a new Mini mount for Apple's Mac mini systems. The new bracket allows users to mount the Mac mini in nearly any orientation -- on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. The latest design is stronger than previous models, but features a lower profile when looking at the Mac head-on. Optional backlighting is once again available, featuring a single LED with an on/off switch inserted into the mount while drawing power via USB. A channel behind the mount provides ample room for cables to drop behind the mount when mounted on a wall, and provides ample clearance for a shelf-mount application. The new Mini mount allows full access to all ports regardless of how the Mac mini is mounted, and features 1/4-inch acrylic with a new round-over edge. The latest Mini mount ships for $55 with backlighting or $40 without, and is available in clear only.
