Macworld goes "Inside the Mac mini" in latest podcast
Wednesday, March 11, 2009
Posted by: Charles

The good people over at Macworld just posted a new podcast that focuses on the Mac mini. According to the show notes, "In this episode of the Macworld Podcast we devote a lot of time to a little thing - the updated Mac mini. Macworld editorial director, Jason Snell, senior news editor, Jonathan Seff, senior editor, Dan Frakes, and I go around the table examining the import of this diminutive Mac." I haven't had a chance to listen to the entire podcast yet, but I think you will find it to be an interesting discussion.

It was sort of entertaining, but I didn't really learn anything new.

For guys that are supposed to know what they're talking about they made a lot of errors in explaining things.

ie. They said the first mac mini had a G5 CPU and they also said the new model has the same GPU as the previous. Pretty hard to take them seriously with mistakes that big.

They also had a couple errors in their print review. Like saying the base Mac mini comes with a 160GB hard drive.

I also got a chuckle out of this line...

Yet by making the Mac mini so difficult to upgrade, Apple has ensured that many users will pay the $799 mini’s $200 premium.


Doesn't that say it all?
