    First, thanks to maya for posting a link to a discussion forum where someone had taken a screenshot of the System Profiler running on a Mac mini from the MWSF floor.

    (http://www.broadbandreports.com/forum/remark,12355404~mode=flat~days=9999~start=80)



    The System Profiler shows that the 80GB hard drive in the Mac mini is a Toshiba MK8025GAS, which is a 2.5" ATA/100 4200rpm laptop hard drive. Specs include an 8MB buffer and a 12ms average seek time. A bit of a disappointment to those expecting a 5400rpm hard drive, but probably not all that surprising considering the margins Apple likes to collect, even on low-end products.

    Wow. All I see is Barney. Looks like they don't like external linking to images. Can you post a link to the original thread?

    this makes the update to the 80GB a no brainer for 50 bucks.
