How about a price cut? I would love to see the Mac mini go back down to $499. I think it would also serve Apple well to have an iMac at $999. Don't they know these are hard times? Idea


If (if...) a new Mini is announced, prices of the old models remaining in stock will be slashed. Good news for any one wanting a Mini and not wanting whatever the future Mini - if there is to be one - beholds; so it might be as well to remain patient for a couple of weeks at least until the myth is debunked.

And BanditBill, Canada may be fortunate in not showing signs of the downturn, but those of us who live in a more international commercial kampfplatz are certainly seeing the cracks in the wall. Our clients aren't exactly from the hard-up strata of society but we're down 90% on orders. Fortunately for me, my company is a retirement hobby; less fortunate are my employees...

Any guesses on what the top CPU speed of the Mini will become? 2.2GHz? 2.4GHz?

I'm thinking 2.0GHz and 2.4GHz will be the speeds. I could be wrong, but I don't think Intel does a 2.2GHz in the newer chip. It's a shame about the hard drives though. I think the Mac minis should be coming with 160GB or 250GB drives these days. It will also be a little embarrassing if they put a Combo Drive in the entry-level model. Embarassed

A little more standard RAM would have been nice too. Then again, who's going to buy 4GB from Apple at the prices they are asking? That's where I plan to go with my Mac mini. Oh well, I hope they get announced today. I've been waiting for a very long time for this update.

Congrats to all of you that waited quietly! Wink

I don't want to jinx anything, but it looks like you guys are getting a nice update. Heck, I may come back for thirds after Snow Kitty comes out.

Apple store is down in some countries such as Australia. If US and Europe stores go down, they're could be something in the works tonight.

We now have no less than FIVE threads on the speculation of the much hoped for MacMini upgrade.
Care to speculate, anyone, which thread will be the most visited when the news finally breaks? Wink
