There is no way Apple would dump the Mac Mini. People post stuff with no basis in facts. The Mac Mini is one of the best selling computers in the product line. In fact, it was #2 behind the 21.5 iMac in the month of August - even though it it is over a year old technology and a new Mini is on the horizon. It is currently the best selling desktop of all brands on Amazon.

Comparing the iPhone to the Mac Mini doesn't make sense. They are 2 different beasts. To say the iPhone will have faster specs in 5 years is implying the Mac Mini won't have faster specs in 5 years - which is nonsense.

There are also a lot of (former) Windows users who buy the Mini who are interested in becoming a Mac user w/o having to shell out $1k+ got an iMac. They likely already have peripherals from their setup (monitor, keyboard, printer, mouse, etc.) that will work fine with a Mini without a major investment into trying a whole new OS. Of course, once they convert, they won't look back. Smile

I agree with you the Mac Mini should be around some more unless this new i pad mini will succeed it from their line.i mac is more expensive also. My whole set up cost me about $900.00 with the MTP also.Again the i phone is no match to the Mac Mini 2 different concepts and it overpriced to me also.Hang in there and don't give up about the MM.
