Apple "Even while at the top of its game, Apple Inc. can seemingly find faults with just about anything, including a bit of itself. The Mac maker is constantly evaluating the market segments in which it wishes to participate and those which it does not. It's an application of love-hate methodology that inevitably produces its share of casualties." AppleInsider says it has learned from 'reliable' sources that the end is nigh for the Mini. "Ladies and gentlemen, AppleInsider believes in all sincerity that the Mini is dead."

"It's probably not the kind of system Apple are ever likely to produce, but I can still dream..."


Keep dreaming. I started off with a IIc that I loved. Then they went down the path of $$$ and "you will take our hardware choices and love it" attitudes. I have waited 20 years for them to see the light. Eventually you stop caring and think the Mac nuts are drones.

Would I like a Mac? Sure, some things about it are 'nifty' and I would like to try one out.
Would I lay out $800 to try one out? NO, A)that would pay for several upgrades on my current machine that would run circles around a Mini. I haven't bought a completely new machine since my first PC ten years ago. B) Those features aren't that nifty.
