So instead of folding up
his computer and going home like some of our more negative commenters had suggested, inventor, composer, and all around
resilient guy Peter Green has been hard at work on the second version of his MacMini Portable. As you'll recall, MMP rev. 1 was
basically Apple's diminutive PC stuffed inside a custom enclosure, attached to an LCD, battery pack, trackpad, and
thumb board, and occupying a footprint smaller than even the most compact laptop. Well now Green is back to silence the
critics who questioned the utility of his first project with the MacMini Portable MkII, which makes numerous
improvements upon its predecessor such as mounting the thumb board flush with the case, significantly reducing the
overall size of the device, and generally making it look more like something you'd want to take out in public. So once
again Mr. Green, we salute you, and encourage you to continue ignoring the haters (and refine your creation to the
point that they're forced to come around). Make sure to check out the "Read" link to peep video of the
MMPMKII in action, complete with a soothing Green-composed soundtrack.
