Important Safety Information
Failure to follow these safety instructions could result in fire, electric
shock, or other injury or damage.
Proper handling Set up your Mac mini on a stable work surface that allows for
adequate air circulation under and around the computer. Do not operate your
Mac mini on a pillow or other soft material, as the material can block the airflow vents.
Never push objects into the ventilation openings.
Water and wet locations Keep your Mac mini away from sources of liquid, such as
drinks, washbasins, bathtubs, shower stalls, and so on. Protect your Mac mini from
dampness or wet weather, such as rain, snow, and fog.
Hearing damage Permanent hearing loss may occur if earbuds or headphones are
used at high volume. You can adapt over time to a higher volume of sound that may
sound normal but can be damaging to your hearing. If you experience ringing in your
ears or muffled speech, stop listening and have your hearing checked. The louder the
volume, the less time is required before your hearing could be affected. Hearing experts
suggest that to protect your hearing:
Last, but Not Least
Limit the amount of time you use earbuds or headphones at high volume.
Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
Turn the volume down if you can’t hear people speaking near you.
High-risk activities This computer system is not intended for use in the operation
of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or communications systems, air traffic control
systems, or for any other uses where the failure of the computer system could lead to
death, personal injury, or severe environmental damage.
Electrical equipment may be hazardous if misused. Operation of this
product, or similar products, must always be supervised by an adult. Do not allow
children access to the interior of any electrical product and do not permit them to
handle any cables.
Do Not Make Repairs Yourself
Your Mac mini doesn’t have any user-serviceable parts, except for memory. To install
memory, follow the instructions in Chapter 3. Except for memory, do not attempt to
replace or repair any components inside your Mac mini. If your Mac mini needs service,
consult an Apple Authorized Service Provider or Apple. See “Learning More, Service,
and Support” on page 62.
Making adjustments or performing procedures other than those
specified in your equipment’s manual may result in hazardous radiation exposure.
Last, but Not Least
If you install items other than memory, you risk damaging your equipment, and such
damage isn’t covered by the limited warranty on your Mac mini.
Never push objects of any kind into this product through the ventilation
openings in the case. Doing so may be dangerous and damage your computer.
