yes thanks you did and I will fix. Question: would it be better if connectire was rotated 180 degrees so locking/key part of the connector was towards the inner part of the board. ?

This will answer one of your questions. http://www.tonymacx86.com/imac-mods/126360-new-imac-g4-mod-up-date-hardware-unchanged-appearance-including-pro-speakers.html#post773156

This looks really great, look forward to see how it goes for you. Soldering SMD components doesn't sound like fun but yes, I am sure it will make the board allow smaller. I know you are designing for a different purpose, but one thing to ensure a failsafe design, so that if the software fails then it doesn't leave the machine inoperable....

The question of course is what circuit you are going to use it in. Typically I use; 1/4 watt, metal film, 1% resistors. The only caveat is the wattage, i.e. how much power it can handle. Just realise that if you were to take a 1k 1/4 resistor an plug it into a large voltage source say >50 volts it would probably burn out, just like an american...

The other processor commonly used, supported by the MB and by OS X is the i7-3770s http://ark.intel.com/products/65524 It is a 65W processor, so will generate more heat, then the i3 (55w), but performance wise is much better (same graphics) 4 cores not 2. There are plenty of builds that use this combination. Kiwi

Quick Update. Managed to get the sound module to play back a chime tonight. Simplest circuit, next steps are to integrate it with Arduino amplifier and relay. To that end What you stated above contradicts Page 20 of the WTD datasheet, which connect the capacitor to the sound board. Anyway I will go with the design in the data sheet...

85 x 63mm I will have to leave it to you to assess if the current design will work. I have very similar components to your prototype board in this area. Adopted your circuit. The reason for the placement of the screw and surrounding void space, is to allow for the micro usb connector coming into the Arduino. They can be quite chunky, so...
