Define Mini's design resembles Fractal Design's earlier cases a lot. The front panel is a brushed aluminum look-alike plastic board and the case's side panels are matte black. On the left side panel and on the top there are holes for 120 mm/140 mm fans. The holes are covered with plates that are supposed to keep the fan holes blocked when there are no fans installed in the holes. There are no holes on the right side panel.
There's not much to see in the front panel. The whole front panel is covered with brushed aluminum look-alike board. In the middle of top side there is a power LED. Opening the door reveals the two 5,25" drive bays and intake fans. By opening the fans' doors you get access to two dust filters which are installed to the case by screws.
5,25" drive bays' covers can be easily removed by turning their handles. Installing a panel back to its place is a bit more difficult because the mechanism is a bit too stiff. Also the front panel's door is covered with noise absorbing material. Unfortunately the door opens only a bit over 90 degrees. It would be better if the door opened all the way against the left side panel.
Power button and front panel's connector are located in the top of the front panel. That means you don't have to open the front panel's door to get access to power button. Reset button is located behind the door to the right side.
On the bottom you can find four rubber legs and a big dust filter for power supply and an optional bottom fan. The filter can be easily removed by sliding it towards the rear panel.
The rear panel looks pretty general, though noteworthy thing is that there is one vertical expansion slot. That is a great place to install the fan controller that was included in the bundle. On the top side there are two holes for watercooling tubes. As usual, the power supply is installed on the bottom and there's a 120 mm fan removing the warm air from the case.
