 COMPTON, Calif. - July 13, 2005 - Belkin Corporation announces Flip(TM) for Mac mini, the first solution designed to share one monitor, keyboard, and mouse between the Mac mini and a second computer, saving money and desktop space. Flip is ideal for using the Mac mini as a second computer, without the expense or desktop real estate requirements of a second monitor. Flip will be available in North America in early fall 2005.
