This hardware is small in size, but equipped with a powerful processor and Thunderbolt, making it easy to incorporate into cart-based recording rig. The only real caveat is the internal power supply, which forces the Mac mini to be AC-powered. There are plenty of well-documented conversions performed to power the Mac from a car or boat battery. One reason this is such a popular mod is because the Mac mini operates natively on 12 VDC, making it a perfect match for car batteries, and more importantly, the DC power distribution systems already found on many sound carts.

    The earlier ones up thru had a brick on a cord. I would expect they could be converted to run on DC without any internal mods.

    The iMac, with a built-in screen, will probably need many more amps that the Mac Mini. I'm sure they're out there, but less common for higher currents.

    And because I can. I've got a solar powered off grid office. I'm going to have a 24vdc bus soon enough for powering network gear either directly for PoE or via small buck converters for lower voltage stuff , and a moderate amperage 12v bus for computers and monitors would be nice to have.
