LCD mount for Mac mini
Sonnet on Tuesday launched its new MacCuff mini, a "back-of-monitor mounting system" for Mac mini computers. MacCuff mini provides users with a practical way to mount their computer to the back of an LCD display (or under a desk or table) while retaining full access to all of its ports and the disc slot. "Most LCD monitors have open VESA mounting holes on the back that provide an ideal spot to attach a MacCuff mini. Mounted securely on the back of a display, a Mac mini disappears. Sonnet helps cut the clutter by providing a 12-inch DVI-to-VGA monitor cable that connects the Mac mini to the monitor, without ever touching the desk. An included cable tie secures the power cable to the bracket to prevent accidental disconnects." The company says that MacCuff mini can just as easily be installed under a desk or shelf and that the open-frame design allows normal Wi-Fi and Bluetooth operation. It is constructed of rugged steel and features a refined platinum finish with a durable plastic coating. It is available now for $50.
Users can easily install the Mac mini either behind their LCD or under their desk: just locate the empty VESA mount screw holes on the back of the monitor, and then use the supplied machine screws to secure the MacCuff mini. For under-desk mounting, users simply tape the included drill template to the surface, drill pilot holes, and attach the bracket using the supplied wood screws.
