Once again Apple proves it sets the trends and the Wintel world follows behind. Plus it looks kind of ugly!

If they can make it nearly silent, and keep it from roasting itself to death, then I'll be impressed.

Those were the biggest advantages (to me) of the Mini... tiny size and quiet operation. Until the Mini it's been possible to get one of the two, but almost impossible to get both in the same package. The Mini has both, in spades!

If this new Intel plastic box manages to hit the same goal, I'll give it a closer look. But I'm not gonna hold my breath on that one...

For me the mini was a great low cost way to try out the Mac. For me it had nothing to do with the size of the box.

Agreed...the mini does, indeed, kick tail. Smile

Its biggest accomplishment is getting new mac users "in the door". An affordable, entry-level Macintosh...allowing all those wannabe Apple owners the cost-justification needed to give OS X a try.

The minis price, size, and versatility convinced me to buy my first mac and i think that a lot of people will be taking the mac plunge soon enough.
