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.

You complain by not buying. It's that simple.

I can choose not to buy AND complain it is too expensive.
If the product suck or is too expensive, I don't buy it AND I open my mouth to let other people know it sucks or is overly expensive and that I don't buy it. I complain loudly so that everybody can hear, both the seller and the potential customers. The only way to stop me is either to lower the price, make product that don't suck or just hire me in the PR department and pay me good money to shut up.
€799 is outrageously expensive. It's well over twice the price I expect to pay for a mini computer without a screen.

Edit: I did a (very) quick google check. In 10 seconds, I found the "ACER Aspire Revo R3610-VFYZ Seven Home Premium" for €315.11 with 4GB of RAM, 500GB hardrive, HDMI, SD card reader, 6xUSB, etc.

An Atom processor, no aluminium casing. Graphics weren't listed anywhere but the sucky CPU suggests it would be useless anyways. It also lacks software (Macs come with iLife bundled), and you fail to acknowledge the simple fact Apple sells its OS for 30 bucks, so it's deemed to make some of the missing money through hardware sales. Apple also has a full onsite warranty, Acer doesn't.

Sure there's a bigger margin for Apple than there is for Acer - ASSUMABLY - but your laughter of a comparison fails to make any valid points.
