I've been watching this board since the new Mac Mini was announced and I've been shocked by the eerie silence about the new pricing on the Mac Mini. It is very clearly a worse deal than the last model was when it was released. Or even the last model more recently. After upgrading to 4GB RAM, the new model is $799. You also get: C2D 2.4ghz, 320GB hdd, 320M graphics The old model was $799 for 4GB RAM, C2D 2.53ghz, 320 GB hdd, 9400M graphics. Besides the evolutionary revision of graphics, the model from a year ago is just as well equipped or even faster. Even if you say that you only need 2GB of RAM, the old $599 model was still a better deal when it was released than the new one is now. I don't give much value to the new form factor or ports. Smaller is nice, but it was already very small, and the miniDVI port was probably more useful than the HDMI port given that you could already get a miniDP to HDMI adapter. Yes I know its Apple and you can buy in to their system or you can choose not to, and I'm not comparing it to Windows computers. I'm comparing it to previous Macs. The trend is usually for Macs to become better values. This new Mac Mini is not a step in that trend.
