Mac mini computers make sweet servers for most applications. However, integrating them into a rack poses some challenges. How do you securely mount the minis? How do you keep them cool? How do you turn them on without pulling them out of the rack? How do you plug in a thumb drive for a quick update? Sonnet's RackMac mini solves all these challenges and more!

This fully-assembled rackmount solution for the latest line of Mac mini servers and computers supports the installation of one or two Mac minis side-by-side into 1U of rack space. Constructed of rugged steel, the RackMac mini places the computers behind a smart front panel. The RackMac mini's design manages airflow through the computers to keep them as cool as ambient air. Stack them close and stack them high for a Mac mini server farm. The RackMac mini provides a front panel power switch and front panel USB port for each computer!

Do you need to take your mini on the road? The RackMac mini's internal rubber bumpers hold your computers firmly in place even during transport in portable racks. Combine this with a shallow 11-inch mounting depth, and you have a product perfect for use in transportable rack applications, such as those from Gator Cases. The RackMac mini is a perfect solution for musicians or DJs! The RackMac mini's design also allows normal WiFi and Bluetooth wireless operation in most configurations, so you can use iPhone or iPod Touch application control apps.

RackMac mini allows open access to the computers' ports in the rear of the enclosure. Holes for cable ties enable you to secure all cables, keeping them tidy while avoiding accidental disconnects.

RackMac mini secures your Mac mini's without trapping them in recirculation hot rack air. A strategically designed chamber directs cool air in a one-way path through front panel openings to the computers' air intakes, and then out the back.

Sonnet RackMac Mini Rackmount Enclosure is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from To my recollection, these are the first nettop devices and paved the way for slim line pcs as well as nettops. Pair this up with Front Row and they make great little HTPCs although now they no longer have a DVD drive. You can also stack these things pretty high to make a DIY supercomputer, but a real super computer will cost the same amount.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 1st it's a mac but as far as macs go it is a portable, small and fun option. i know several people setting them up for media pcs. i think they are still overpriced but they are apple so that is a given.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I use one at home for a media server and to watch TV. Recently also installed VirtualBox on it to use to test Windows 7 - that's going pretty well. Versatile little box as long as you don't need to do powerful tasks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Running a Intel Dual core Mini with 2GB as a webserver for more then 3 years now. Not one hick-up, no BSOD, no problems whatsoever.Hosting private website, some company-related stuff and an imagebank for my photos.Installed with Panther, I updated it to Tiger en later with Leopard, all with no problems. I only need to update the memory, because it's getting a bit slow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product, very small form factor - looks good, has all the bells and whistles that you need - ideally suited as a media centre or for a son/daughter replacement PC. Not too hot if you have never owned a PC before as you need to buy a monitor, keyboard and mouse.People say the price is too high when compared with comparably specced hardware but it is the whole ease of use and bundled apps with OS X that are worth the money.
