One of the nicer Mini mods out there. Like the Mini in a Mac Plus case, it takes older Apple gear and brings it up to current use doing what it was originally used for (well, DVDs instead of 5.25" floppies, but close enough). If my Disk ][ wasn't still working I might try the same mod!

Being a collector who wants to maintain the original, I don't know whether to laugh or cry...

Heh, in the late '80s something like that would've drawn fiery rage from Apple ][ users.
