Apple’s New Mac Mini

The little machine that has been overlooked for so long gets a much needed hardware upgrade. I always thought they were planning on cutting it off since it didn’t seem to be having the impact that they were expecting, but it seems that they still have some use for the MacMini today. The hardware upgrade has warranted it’s use as normal Mac or a Server based on the extra features which is interesting coming from Apple, meaning they are confident of its capabilities.

    i’m thinking of getting one and using it with my HDTV .. i mean to use as a media player plus there is no harm in a little bit of facebook on my 51″ TV !
    Can i do that ?

  2. Would it leu you into switching to the Mac ? ;-)

  3. I really expected them to upgrade it to an i5 CPU and dedicated graphics. This is mainly a HTPC but with a high price tag.

    If they bring the price down like it was (599) or bump up the specs it would have been a good buy.

  4. i am seriously considering it .. But i have to find a place for it first :)
