    Hi, this is my first mini and as much as I love the look of this little computer
    I am a little bit afraid of quality because I have just found loose tiny black screw inside
    rattling around while moving the unit. I turned off the machine an opened the
    ram access cover allowing the screw to fall out. Now my question was it spare screw which apple worker accidentally lost or it got screwed out from some part inside? Nothing what I can see from underneath is missing a screw though.

    You won't be able to tell if there's a screw missing from the inside until you open it up and look.

    if its quite new, why not take it back to an Apple Store in your area and say this screw fell out and see what they say?
