Thread: Is the Mac Mini case earthed?
06-10-2005, 01:22 PM #1Is the Mac Mini case earthed?
I modified my Mini and added 1Gb of memory stick. It was fun stripping down the machine and putting it back together (not!).
However, when I took it apart I noticed a lot of earth tags.
My Mini is up and running now and I metred it yesterday. I was surprised that the metal casing did not appear to be earthed. I put one prong on the casing and the other on an earth source, the radiator. They were not common (ie both earthed).
Is that normal or have I re-assembled it wrongly?
I would normally expect the casing (chasis) to be earthed to stop radio interference from getting in.
