The G4 Cube never worked out for Apple quite the way the company hoped it would, but the design still holds a special place in the hearts of many Mac lovers and design aficionados, including us. That’s why we were very happy to see Newer Technology has adapted the NuCube Vertical Stand for Mac mini ($40) to fit the current generation of Cupertino’s diminutive desktop computer. NuCube brings back the clear acrylic aesthetics we loved, coming as close to a new Cube as we’re likely to see.
The holder is made up of clear plastic, with 3/8” thick walls, and the back is left open for full access to all of the ports. And not only does the computer take up less space in a vertical orientation, but Newer Technology claims it runs cooler, too.
