1 Answer 1

From a pdf that I downloaded quite a while back,

Logic Supply 3688 mini-ITX System

  • Power Supply Morex 60 Watt Power Supply
  • Operating System Windows XP Home - English
  • Motherboard EPIA MII 12000 1.2Ghz
  • Memory 256MB PC2100/DDR266 RAM
  • Hard Disk 2.5" 40GB Seagate 5400rpm
  • Color Silver
  • CD / DVD Drive Panasonic CW-8123-B Slotloading CD-RW / DVD
  • Build and test this system

Total: $710
Original author:Jason Sares
Disclamer from the author: The final system is still a little bigger, slower and more expensive than the Mac Mini itself
