We’ll admit, while we like the unibody construction of other Apple products, there’s something especially serious about this design that speaks to us.

Aside from all the iPhone 4 hype today, Apple also released an updated Mac Mini. This eco-friendly model features a 1.4-inch thin aluminum unibody enclosure, a built-in power supply, removable panel for easy upgrades, HDMI port, SD card reader. On the inside, you’ll find either a 2.4GHz or 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of SDRAM (8GB max.), and an NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor with 256MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory.

This modder was tired of waiting for Apple to release an aluminum Mac Mini, so he took the task into his own hands. Built from mesh and sheet aluminum, you’ll find an “Aaeon GENE-9310 mobo, an Intel Core Duo T2500 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 2.5″ Seagate Momentus hard drive” inside the case.

While not running on official Apple hardware, the Hackintosh Jr. gets its looks from the big tower Macs, but at 5.5″ (h) x 7″ (w) x 5″ (d), it’s not much bigger than a Mac Mini.

Now that you’ve seen a spy shot of the new Mac Mini, we’ve got a video of the computer to prove its validity. Continue reading to watch.

The Mac mini on video here looks like the new one we saw yesterday with five USB and dual display ports – the one declared fake earlier. This looks pretty convincing.

Could the above picture be depicting the new Mac Mini? It very well may be, according to a Mac Rumors forum member. Featuring five USB ports, “an Ethernet port, Firewire, Mini DisplayPort and the old style mini DVI Mac display port.”

That seems odd. In any case, if this is real, it looks quite nice – and you can probably bet it’ll run with at least the new Nvidia 9400 graphics chipset found in the newer MacBook and MacBook Pros.
