    Who even buys these anymore? $600 for machine and then another $400 for a monitor - just buy an iMac.....

    yes, i was just reading that in appleinsider.

    i am thinking about buying a mac mini with a cinema display. the reason for this as opposed to getting an imac is that we already have an imac (so a different look would be nice) and that i can get an s-ips panel in the cinema display which i am told is better than the tn panel in the imac (which would be better suited to the photo editing i do).

    i for one would be sorry if the mac mini is discontinued. but perhaps they are not selling well.

    AI - Artificial Intelligence?

    What about those of us with monitors and keyboards? Buy an iMac, already with a monitor and keyboard and mouse? Paying extra for a stuff we don't need?

    I know people with older all-in-ones (Mac and PC) where it's time to upgrade the computer, but the monitor is fine. They have to get rid of the whole machine, with a perfectly good monitor.

    Not so "Green"...

    So, now forced to buy a Mac Pro? If they drop the price to $599....:eek:

    Silly....

    If this is true, I think it's terrible. There's a lot of us that don't want a built-in monitor and the corresponding cost just to stay current with Intel Macs.

    I really don't see them dropping that machine without introducing another.

    I could tell the Mini wasn't going to make it. iMac rules them all.
