    Hi I'm wanting to buy my daughter a Mac Mini for Christmas but she goes between my house and her mums and I'd like her to be able to take it with her to her mums. She would also be taking the power cable, an HDMI cable, the Mighty Mouse and the Bluetooth keyboard.

    Are there any carrier cases available that stores all of these together?

    Reccommend Pelican Case

    Without knowing your daughters age, I would recommend a pelican case. I had my mini in a pelican and successfully travelled from baghdad to kuwait to the us and later on to balad and other places, substaining all the beating as regreatfully it had to go on the belly of the plane. You could probably get one for about 79.00 but it will be protected. you might also has some space left for an external hard disk

    pelican cases

    ok pelican case model 1490 looks like a briefcase internal dimension 17.75x11.37x4.12 in. I just tried again with my wife mini and keyboard keybord is a tight fir as it is almos 11 inches long so there will be some deormation on the internal pading, however this allows for mini 8x8 to fit with plenty of space for a cables, mouse and passport size hd. Or you can try 1430 and store vertically (13.56x5.76x11.70) if this doesnt work usestorm 1m2500 20.50" x 11.50" x 7.20. I have use the first one and the last one to travel with my mini. link-pelicancases.com. hope this works.

    I would just have her take the mac mini itself and the power cable and have two hdmi cables, two mice and two keyboards and leave one of each at location. Or you can go as far as having two mac mini's and have an external SSD/HDD that she uses to boot from.
