Lindy Electronics has announced an external drive enclosure designed for the Mac mini.

The silver and white hard drive case carries both Firewire and USB 2 connections and stacks "perfectly" below the Mac, the company said. It's an enclosure for a drive, which means users can choose whichever size of hard drive they want - the drive must be a 3.5in IDE or ATA drive.

Fan-free, the Mini HDD Enclosure has been designed to use its aluminium parts for heat dissipation. Dimensions are 162 x 162 x 47mm. The enclosure costs £39.99.
