cheers

It would also make sense to split out the different iPod models, although that is a bit of a pain.

ya, the ipods are a bit of a challenge.

trying to figure out the best way to track.

The mac mini's on the list now... but there's not much there to go by... no historical data.

Uh, now it appears to say NOTHING about the Mac mini. HTML coding problem? Viewing in IE 6 for Windows.

Heh... there really is nothing to say about the Mac Mini -- at least with respect to when it will be updated.

There is no way to predict when the next mini will come out since Apple's never updated it before.

arnNo, I mean it says NOTHING... none of this type info is appearing at all:

Product: PowerBook
Last Release: January 31, 2005
Days Since Update: 11 (Average = 185)
Recommendation: Buy Now! - Product just updated
Special Notes: none.

There's just a big white void. Safari shows it OK, but IE 6 for Windows does not. All other computer info shows correctly in IE 6, so I assume that there's some sort of coding error in the Mac mini section that only affects IE.

ah... guess I should test on more than one browser... :)

Thanks for the heads up. I think it's fixed now.

Uh, Apple DID upgrade the Mac Mini about a week after they shipped... the 8x SuperDrive?

That means that we are long overdue for a Mini update. :( :mad: :p

The Superdrives were never updated to 8x, that was just an error on Apple's part, it's still 4x. So there was no updates, just minor price drops.

No, they didn't. They updated their site, and subsequently changed it back again, but the hardware didn't change.
