The problem with long-term reviews is that new models appear so frequently as to render such long-term reviews as meaningless for new customers.

True for many PC makers, but Apple's product cycle in long enough that sites could do a revisit 90 days later and it would still have some meaning.

Look at Apple's Wireless Might Mouse. Macworld just gave it 2 stars. Wasn't this a 4 star mouse a while back?

Maybe, but in the 12 months since I bought my Mac Mini there's been:

1.4Ghz G4 PPC,
1.5Ghz G4 PPC,
1.5Ghz Intel Core Solo,
1.66Ghz Intel Core Duo,
1.83Ghz Intel Core Duo.

No doubt there will be a 2.0Ghz Intel Core2 Duo version due anytime soon.

Yes, but the 1.4/1.5 PPC mini were the same as are the 1.5 Solo and any current Core Duo. Speed bumps generally don't equate to a product revision so the review still applies.
