Just noticed on the UK store, what a nice surprise! I can't believe the Mac Mini finally has "New" by it's name!

Good update. The iMac updates are nice. If I cared for a desktop, I'd get an iMac. However, my Unibody MacBook serves me perfectly.

The best part of £1k for an entry level ready to go desktop (the mini doesn't count) really is just too much, especially in these times.

They will still sell, but it's a great shame the cost of entry isn't lower.
