bizarre, imac 17" is now $200 cheaper, while no price shift for mini.
no love for the mini
components are even more compressed in a mini than the iMac, i'm not surprised, the markup that Apple gets off of a mini is small to begin with they aren't going to drop the price. notice though on the lowest end of the iMacs they removed BT and the remote? it also only has a combo drive and integrated graphics. hence the nice price drop.
Can't blame 'em
Aluminium prices are all time high
It's because they dropped some of the specs on the entry-level machine...it's now more like the EDU-only one that was briefly available to individuals.
I'd still take the Mini over the iMac, a bummer than it doesn't have Core 2 though.
you could buy the low end mini and drop a Core 2 chip in there, no? the mini's are socketed.
see, the thing is, 599 vs 1299, mini is sure good, but 599 vs. 999.........just think about monitor and keyboard......
Still, the 17" model dropped from $1299 to $1199 and the 20" model from $1699 to $1499.
I get what you're saying, but what about people who already own a nice monitor and a keyboard, and don't want to pay the extra money, even if it seems like a better value?
at least now you can use your old monitor for spanning with the Intel iMacs.
Getting a core duo at the same price of a core solo is not a price drop????
