Like the new Apple Mini? Want to see the insides?

Smash's have figured out how to "safely" open the damned thing.

somebody leaked me this video... it demonstrates how to crack-open the mac mini's casing, which makes all parts available to the user via further disassembly screws. I'm not sure if it's legal for me to post this or not, but here it is! (until I hear differently, this will remain available here.)

They also helpfully linked to a macworld article on the warranty differences between an Apple and a Dell:

The Dell comes with 256MB of RAM, but it?s shared between the computer and the video card. Dell says that 32MB to 64MB of that RAM will be used by the video card, leaving you with 196MB to 224MB for the operating system and all applications (even though the company recommends 512MB to 1GB if you want to ?run several programs at once or plan to edit photos"). Want to upgrade? You?re stuck at a maximum of 512MB, still shared. The Mac mini includes a video card with dedicated memory, and you can upgrade the Mac mini?s RAM to 1GB?contrary to rumors around the Internet, Apple has told Macworld that you can even do it yourself without voiding your warranty ?unless you break something when you open it.?)
I love that. "It's covered, unless you broke it."
