The death of the Mac Mini

AppleInsider got a strong tip that the MacMini is dead. I believe that the claim is true. It’s kind of a sad moment, especially if Apple doesn’t follow up with another sub-$600 Mac. Especially after the rumors that the 17″ iMac will go the way of the dodo too, it is important for Apple –in order to stay relevant in the non-US market– to come up with a similar low-cost product. There was nothing wrong with the Mac Mini you see (apart from using a slow 2.5″ laptop hard drive instead of a 3.5″ one, and not having a line-in) and in fact introduced lots of users to the Mac that otherwise would never afford it.

My JBQ even mentioned last week that he wanted to get a MacMini too, to replace his dual PowerMac G4 2×1.25 Ghz.

FWIW, all Intel minis have line in. :)

Can’t be! The MacMini is one of the coolest computers ever, this is so sad if it is actually true. :-(
