    Probably has more to do with Vista being a dog than the mini's wonderful hardware. The cpu is fine, but a 5400rpm 120GB hard drive, builtin 950 graphics and 1GB ram is nothing to brag about for $800. I wish they'd just merge it the ApplyTV line, give it the slightly bigger footprint, and put in a desktop HD and a mid-range graphics card. Or better yet, a PCIe slot where you could stick in an upgrade card. Apple could even make you upgrade the power brick to be able to do that. They'd make money doing that. I don't think it's going to happen, but they could.

    But then AppleTV would cost $800.

    Yes, a cute little chubby pink porker with fluffy white wings and delicate hooves. I believe I heard a plaintive "squeeeeea!?" just after he was launched from the trebuchet but before he landed painfully among the dashed hopes.

    They need to keep a cheap TV head device for the living room. For most people a mini is over kill for just that function. For the power user, the current mini is almost replacement for the Apple TV. Apple just needs to add the missing functionality to Leopards Frontrow.
