The Coolest Thing About the Mac Mini

The other day I got a new Mac Mini the mail (thanks to!) and have been playing around with a bit this weekend. There’s one thing that really strikes me as cool about it. No, not the elegant simplicity of OS X. No, not engineering feat of fitting that much PC into that little space. No, not the attractiveness of the box itself.

It’s the little power light on the front.

When the Mini goes into sleep mode, the pinhole-sized white light goes from a steady-on, to a slow, smooth, pulsing. It feels spaceship futuristic. It’s mesmerizing.

So forget everything you’ve heard about the Mac: the pulsing light is its most important feature.
