    I just bought my second Mac Mini (2012 model) last week. My previous Mini was a 2009 model which had the rubber bottom.

    Now I see that the current form factor has a solid plastic bottom which is quite slippery. I am sure there are stories of Mac Mini's flying off of desks.

    I'm just curious what everyone does with their Mini's to prevent them from sliding around. Do you apply a rubber adhesive to the bottom or just leave it as is?

    I bought a vertical stand for mine because of the slippry bittom and to also save desk space. Works for me.

    I set mine on some black drawer liner material. It is a grippy rubber. It comes in rolls so you will get way more than you need though.

    I found some cheap drawer liner at a dollar store. Interesting stuff to have around, so having extra material is not a real problem (at least for me :D )
    You could use just about anything that is relatively thin, and grips the bottom.

    I bought some cheap self adhesive rubber/plastic feet and mounted them on the black plastic.

    Rubber adhesive feet from target or walmart. Works great.
