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.

Apple doesn't update its product line very often, so this is what happens and how they maximize their profits.

Phase 1: New product introduction
=> Product is usually priced at a small premium over competing products.
=> Apple touts the superiority of its hardware over the competition. May or may not be true.

Phase 2: six months later
=> hardware prices drop across the industry, competitors lower prices and increase hardware specs.
=> Apple doesn't change pricing or specs. Now a really deal
=> Marketing doesn't change still compares hardware and price to that at time of launch ignoring new pricing and hardware of existing clients.
