Apple Apple have updated the Mac Mini. It now sports an aluminium (no, I am not going to spell it "aluminum") enclosure, an HDMI port, an internal PSU (no power-brick!) and oddly, an SD card slot in the back. There's also an access hole on the bottom to change the RAM easily.

People who say that Apple hardware is over-expensive compared with other similar computers are often accused of missing some hypothetic point. However, I think I've never seen somebody explaining seriously and without introducing a pure troll or some kind of false information what said point is...


By and large, IMO, Mac vs. PC arguments aren't so much debates as they're contests between people trying to frame the debate in whatever way will make their favoured platform come out the "winner".

PC advocate: price and upgradeability are all that matter, therefore the PC wins!
Mac advocate: no, user experience is all that matters, therefore the Mac wins!
PC advocate: well I've had a good user experience with PCs and, even though I'm part of the small minority who build their own computers with carefully-chosen components, I'm going to assume that my experience is representative of all users. Therefore, the PC wins!
Mac advocate: well I've had a bad user experience with PeeCees and, even though all of the PCs I've used were bargain-basement crapware-laden eMachines, I'm going to assume that *my* experience is representative of all users. Therefore, the Mac wins!

...ad nauseum.
