Apple is no longer a computer company. Its a music company. The convergence of music players and phones is the biggest thing likely to happening for technology companies. If Apple doesn't provide a product in that market (which it basically owns) as soon as it can, it will slowly drift away.


But that is exactly what we are disappointed about. We will be abandoned for the latest craze. I don't mind if Apple wants to reign supreme in the portable media market, just don't do it at the expense of other markets - namely the one I'm interested in Wink Hot young lingerie models are the latest craze - do you think my wife would like it if I pursued them and ignored her?Razz

I guess the timing is off - if I had recently purchased, it probably wouldn't bother me at all. It's just that I was holding out for Leopard and hopefully some upgrades.

I don't think that's going to happen. Since Apple has already backed out of the expected June Leopard release, hopefully they won't delay another product release. Though it may happen, I sure hope it wont.

So, what stops apple from UPDATING their HARDWARE line, incl. the Mini, and offer some kind of OS upgrade discount later?

Can't they upgrade the hardware now, without waiting for new os?

Nothing is holding them back! That said, Apple hasn't offered OS upgrade discounts/coupons this far out in the past.

I wouldn't be surprised see a few system updates soon now that Leopard has been pushed back. It's possible that the June release was holding back some announcements. One things is for sure. They are going to need something to spark sales. The Mac mini, iMac and MacBooks haven't been updated in a while and Leepard isn't coming out until the fall. Something has to give.

I'm willing to give Apple a 4-month break here. It's not like the end of the world. However, I was surprised to hear they had to pull away people from the OS X team for the iPhone. Where are all those people that would rather work for Apple than Microsoft when you need them? I would send in my resume, but I don't think they are in much need of a phlebotomist.

Well well well... as lot of people here I have been waiting at least since January (even more but there have been other (financial) reasons on the line) to buy my first Mac ever (a mini). I hold it because Apple announced the release for Spring and I thought I could wait. I was also waiting for an update of the mini. I can't tell you how much I hate the iPhone right now Wink But seriously I don't know what to do. Please don't tell me that this is what happens when you wait, because I m not going to buy a machine and an OS which both are gonna be upgraded soon. I m not willing to pay again to upgrade to Leopard and to iLife with a machine which might not be perfomant enough to fully enjoy those upgrades.

Sorry for the complains, it just needed to get out Very Happy

Does anyone know where I can get a copy of Time Machine? I would like to leap forward to October. Mr. Green

Maybe soon they tell us the Mini will be discontinued, to make matters worse... Sorry, I'm in a pessimistic mood... Twisted Evil

This is very bad, looks like i have to hold back on buying a MBP until October... Wait... THAT'S MY BIRTHDAY! Laughing

I wonder if Apple will give out coupons to new Mac owners to pay for Leopard? You know like completely new Macs.

well, I bought my first macmini a month ago, so all Mac stuff is new to me and this announcement doesn't bother me in the least. When I was shopping a few weeks back everyone said wait, there'll be an update, new os, etc. Well, I didn't buy into the rumours and as I am a "must have it now" kind of guy, I bought one anyways. Since then I've upgraded to C2D 2Ghz, 2GB RAM and a 160GB internal HDD. So in a sense I guess I have a future mac mini (except for the graphics card being the same). I am enjoying exploring Tiger, perhaps by the time I'm comfortable with it October will be here.

Anyways, I am glad I didn't wait for a redesigned macmini. Rumours = no new mac to play with.

Yep...took the C2D out of my laptop (put the core duo from the mini back in the laptop of course), grabbed two sticks of RAM and HDD and did the upgrades in about 45 minutes. Not too tough if you know your way around the inside of a computer.
