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."

The bean counters at Apple love the even higher margins of the complete systems, and I doubt they ever liked the idea of selling you a small efficient box that you could plug your own mouse/keyboard/monitor into.

If you asked me last week what I recommended to non-tech-savvy family and friends when they asked what computer to get, I'd have said, "Well, can't have them using MS Windows, so... I guess a Mac Mini.".

But, as of last week, Dell changed that. Now I'll probably tell them to go with an Inspiron E1505 N (comes with Ubuntu GNU/Linux).
