You can buy the logic board from an Apple service centre. Then add your own RAM and drives......

unfortunately, Apple Authorized Service Providers arent allowed to sell parts outright. Its part of their contract agreement with apple.
Unfortunately, we periodically get customers who refuse to understand that it doesnt matter if apple doesnt know. we cannot break contract.
Anyway, I'll keep my eyes open for anything mac mini that might be of help. You might be better off just buying one though.

erg, thought I had a logic board & case links, nm. I've seen a Mac mini logic board on eBay right now for $179 and the top shells for $49

The Mini is fairly new and as such the after market options will be limited. Ebay is your best bet. Also consider the Cube, wich can be had for a very reasonable prices and is also small with a nice upgrade path too.
