With iJuice and Movie mini the Mac mini becomes a mobile DVD-cinema
Boston/Munich − April 01, 2005: equinux, until now known as a developer of high-quality software for
the Apple platform, presents two new Mac innovations sure to
revolutionize your Mac mini. In just two quick steps, these new
hardware components „iJuice“ and „Movie mini“ turn your Mac mini into
the ultimate portable DVD player!
„iJuice“ can be quickly and easily docked to the Mac mini and supplies
it with up to 16 hours of power. After charging just 30 minutes with
the Mac mini charger or with the Auto-charging adapter (available
seperately), iJuice is charged up to 80% capacity.
„Movie mini“ is a comfortable 7“ display with integrated stereo
speakers and clickwheel which is seamlessly attached to a Mac mini dock
and offers a built-in HDTV 7“ widescreen disply with 1280 x 720 pixel
resolution. The touch sensitive clickwheel makes navigating a cinch,
and the battery capacity is the envy of all leading portable DVD
players on the market.
„iJuice and Movie mini are the ideal combo for every Mac mini owner.
iJuice ensures that the power doesn´t go out, and Movie mini makes
watching DVDs on the go an experience,“ commented equinux chief
designer Kay Dollfus. „We put a lot of emphasis on design and an

„DVD-nomad“ market. Users go with friends out for a drink, take their
Mac mini with them and dock it to the affixed iJuice batteries. Then
just attach the Movie mini display and connect by WLAN to a huge

investment group a chain of ‚Movie-Bars‘ in San Francisco, New York,

enjoying a fine range of cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages in a hip
atmosphere,“ remarked Julia Markovic, product manager at equinux for
both iJuice and movie mini.
