Lightbulb Desk bracket for mini

I've just bought a new mini but don't have a hang of a lot of space ON my desk so would like to put my mini under my desk with some kind of bracket, less mess that way.

Any suggestions? I found this, looks decent for the price.

The MacSalesc.com is a good place to look. A thought for consideration: I am not a fan of plastic for heat generating devices, it can get brittle and crack over time, and I have found that the MacMini can run hot. There are a number of metal brackets offered for desk mounting and I think that this the better route to go.

This is by far the coolest solution:

Is your monitor height adjustable?

Why not look for a monitor riser and slot the mini underneath.

An example:

I have two 24" monitors on a elevated desk mount so there's nothing underneath them, I'd like to keep it that way that's why I wanna put the mini under the desk.
