Most of what you would need t

Most of what you would need to do is cutting away at the internal NES plastics; after that, the Mac Mini will fit inside the NES without you having to remove it from the case.

I'm gonna remove it from the

I'm gonna remove it from the case I was thinking of adding a slim dvd writter. So when I eject it lifts the NES flap. =) Stuff I would like to know is how to get the buttons on the NES case to control the Mac Mini. Like power button on NES make the mac go into sleep mode and the eject button work the dvd drive. One more thing I'm not sure about is making the infa red work even tho its in a case. This would make a really cool looking media centre now that you can run windows on it as well.

I hope you aren't doing this

I hope you aren't doing this to a Working NES. Around here, they sell the working ones for about $130 at the local gamers and used games stores. Also, the fact that they have the Final Fantasy games at $300, makes me wonder what is going thru the minds of the sellers (as well as the people who buy at that price)...

You seem to live in a vortex

You seem to live in a vortex of hyperinflated prices. $130 for a regular NES is insanity. At the overpriced flea market here, they go for $20. The top-loading NES can go for around $130 on ebay, but it's rarer.
