Mac Mini Tower

Would you buy a Mac Mini Tower?
Something that could be easily upgradeable by any Tom Dick or Harry?
Video card, Hard drive, Ram, Processor card, All upgradeable in the blink of an eye?

Now we are talking, Come on Apple, Bring it on.

I want it now.

I like this concept (from Toronto-based Peter Zigich):



What could the new MacPro look like? How about a flexible modular design? - fcp.co

NO, Not really, It's more like a Mac Mini Pro,
Something with a smaller footprint, But with a really easy accessible body.
Can't do that easily with the Mac Mini as it is now.

But, The demand is there for a small footprint tower.

I wouldn't trust anything from a company that doesn't know how to spell Typical.

It put me off too!

Besides, I don't care about the footprint. Just get me a new Mac Pro.

Hmmm... I guess i'm missing seeing any misspelling or misuse of 'Typical' at either of the posted sites, nor any option to even purchase such a Mac model.

The pages just seem to be a conceptual idea for a possible proposed new Mac "tower" model idea as far as I can see.
