This iphone business needs to stop. So depressed.... Crying or Very sad


We always can switch to Linux (hear that Jobs?!) and buy one of these Aopen machines... Razz


I am tempted to by a shell Aopen machine. Even w/o CPU and memory they are somewhat expensive, but I have my old core duo CPU from my mini from when I upgraded it, and I can get cheap ram on tigerdirect.

they shouldn't drop the mini...
If they do, regardless...Leopard will be running fine and dandy on my current Mini come October...because I already know it will work just fine.

They need to refine the mini to Core2Duo....and after all, this is just a rumor. I think the Mini is here to stay...

Sigh... don't you all realize that this is just a RUMOR? It was a speculation from someone who has absolutely zero proof of his claims.

There are a lot of mindless sheep out there but I thought the Mac mini crowd would be a little different... I guess not.

Even if Apple ditches the Mini I believe it will still have a "Mini-like" product in it's line.

Look at this:

Kind of interesting.

I have a cheaper Mattias keyboard; comes with a two button scroll mouse and has a vertical usb 2.0 connection at the top of the keyboard. Keys also go clickity-clack. A bit noisy, but I like the sound feedback.

I do. I have a lot of trouble with the original article and AppleInsider and Think Secret in general. Most of the article was a carbon copy of one posted on Hardmac (can't find it right now). It would be funny if that was his "source". Laughing

I can't recall the specific rumor, but about four years ago, before Macworld in January, there was a series of articles from the various rumor sites "confirming" some big rumor, when in reality, each one was referencing the other in a big circle of inane logic.

This would be sad, never have I owned a workhorse like the mini! My mini is chugging away almost 24x7x365 and it never skips a beat. My 1 and ONLY gripe with the mini is the video situation. I say add another layer to the mini so we can add a killer videocard of our choice. If they do away with the mini I sure hope they come up with a micro tower headless system with some good config options, I could live with that.

I have my fingers crossed that this isn't true, but it wouldn't surprise me. Apple seems to be a little out of touch with their customer base. This might be because they are growing so apparently fast. Either way, I don't like the direction Apple is taking. Eliminating a computer that the 'everyman' can afford would only further my disappointment in them.

Are you talking about the Asteroid device?

I've been waiting for the mac mini to get upgraded before switching. I sure hope the discontinuation of the mac mini is just a rumour. If Apple thinks I should just stay with Microsoft that's their loss.
