I like it, better then most classic all-in-one mini mods. Everyone else leaves the mini intact and add a LCD. You went beyond and added a power supply, kept the screen stock looking and voided the warranty on the mini with out in fear. Keep up the good work.
Would you mind taking a couple more pictures of all of the angles? I was actually thinking of doing a similar project with a PowerMac 5500. They are HUGE, common, and have tons of possibilities. Mine is going to be Black, LCD Screen Integrated, with a MDD Motherboard mounted inside. I'm thinking of either an MDD or a Mini. But I can't decide.
