Wichita, Kan.-based WiebeTech LLC on Wednesday announced
Maxelerate, a new external aluminum enclosure designed especially for Apple’s Mac mini. Shipping in mid-September, Maxelerate is available for pre-order now starting at US$119.95 for a bare enclosure.
Maxelerate offers internal storage of up to 500GB and it’s bootable. What’s more, it can increase the Mac mini’s performance when paired with high-performance hard drives, which work up to 30 percent faster than a stock Mac mini drive, according to WiebeTech.
Maxelerate is also a FireWire and USB 2.0 hub. It features three FireWire ports and three USB 2.0 interfaces. And it can be used as a pedestal for the Mac mini, fitting snugly underneath it.
WiebeTech includes a FireWire cable, USB cable and AC adapter.
