Apple Ars reviews the Mac Mini Core Solo, and concludes: "Because this machine maintains the same great form factor and adds a ton of new, standard features in addition to having substantially better performance with only a price increase of $100 on each model, I'm giving the Mac Mini Solo a score of 8. The integrated graphics issue is an issue to be sure, but the impacted population is so small and the cure so easily fixed, that I don't feel that knocking the score down any further is warranted. From nearly all other perspectives, this is a great entry level machine with a great footprint and the ability to utilize peripherals most people already have." On a related note, the new Mini's processor is upgradable.

I just wish Apple would have kept selling the G4 Minis, and maybe sell them for $399 or something. I know about the whole shift to Intel chips, but didn't Steve Jobs say that the PowerPC architecture would be supported for several years? All these Intel machines are coming a lot sooner than expected, and it seems that Apple just wants to kill off PPC support.

What do you understand by "supporting it"?

For me, it means that they will continue to make application, updates, support, even maybe a X.5.

But never he said that they will continue to sell outdated hardware (which is going anywhere by the way).
