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.

Very attractive device...

...but far too limited and insanely priced. Remember, the HTPC is usually the 3rd or 4th computer. I'm not going to spend 700 EUR on that.

well it's not exactly an HTPC tho, it can be an HTPC. The HDMI is nothing more than something the new Nvidia 320M provides for free, I think people are reading too much into this as an HTPC device only.

this is a still a primary Mac machine, thats why they are still focusing on form factor, it's made to look pretty sitting on your desk.

Actually I found that a good incentive to get a Mac Mini as my first Macintosh. I had three computers at home -- one desktop, two laptop and I wanted to try out the mac experience so I got a Mac Mini as I can double it as a HTPC (back in 2008, so it's connected via vga cable).

Of course, the price puts me off entirely
