    I'm planning on ordering a mac mini from apple this wed. but I'm not sure on if its the best idea... I'd hate to have apple come out with a new upgrade mac mini or price drop this month. I've been holding off for a couple months now and thought that the expo in paris might be the upgrade but now that the expo won't have any keynote I'm doubting they will have the upgrade.

    Does anyone think I should wait or order wed.?

    I'd be ordering:
    Mac mini
    1.42ghz
    512mb ram
    Superdrive
    80GB
    With bluetooth and airport card
    Wird keyboard and mighty mouse

    I think that the chance of an updated Mac Mini in the near future are slim to none- so go ahead and order your Mini so that you can start enjoying it! :)

    May I suggest, if you can afford it, to get a 1GB of RAM, if you'll be doing anything besides word processing, etc. you'll need it.

    The ultimate question indeed.

    The best time to buy is when a product is just released or refreshed. :D

    Not making the same mistake the first time around. :p
