By replacing the stock base of the unibody Mac mini, the Mini mount is the perfect solution to safely and securely mount your Mac to nearly any surface.
A perfect fit
The three-point mount harness latches directly to the chassis of the Mac mini ensuring an exact fit that's both stable and secure. The integrated lock prevents unwanted removal of the Mac mini—perfect for situations where theft-deterrence is a concern.
Tough and safe
Built from a combination of strong ABS plastic and metal components, the Mini mount actually replicates the stock base of the Mac mini—supporting proper airflow, electromagnetic shielding providing an unobstructed path to the Wi-Fi antenna.

It was easy enough to install, but took considerable effort to seat the Mini on the mount. The "locking mechanism" is basically a thin leaf spring, and can be easily disabled and broken, and managed to last all of a week intact. DO NOT BUY THIS AS A COMPUTER LOCK! …

As many of us use a Mac Mini as a HTPC as Apple don't offer anything else to do the job currently (they could do a HTPC version of the Mini obviously!).
Hence why using this behind your TV works really well to get the Mini hidden away in awkward spaces.
This also works well on flat surfaces to avoid Mini's getting needlessly moved around when they need to stay in one place. Basically it's a different solution to the Kensington lock, offering less annoying movement of the machine on any given surface.
Neat idea for any HTPC user, and beyond! …
