Answer to: Can a 2011 Mac Mini fit in a 2010 case?Actually, it is quite possible, with some tweaking, in 3-4 hours; see this post on www.123macmini.com. We now only have to hope that enough people will get interested so that iFixit will provide an all inclusive kit to do that in less than 60 mn :-)
