    Looking at possibly heading down to the Bullring centre at lunch time to pick up either a base mini or the 2.5.

    Is there any way to tell if they have them in stock before heading out? I looked on the Apple Store app on my iphone and there is no option to reserve mac minis - does this mean they are not in stock?

    Have been missing the world of OSX since I sold my Macbook Pro about a year ago. Lion and the new Mini has tempted me back.

    Good point, but harder to hide a phone call whilst at work than a quick look on the web - was hoping someone may know :rolleyes:

    I spoke to them the other day - they do have stock, but as of yesterday it's not on display - but i'd call them first.

    They still have the old C2D server on display. Initially I had to do a double take as the prices on the displaypad™ was from £479' - but that's the price they are shifting the old C2D (non server) mini for.

    It's a busy place at the moment as the schools are off.

    Will give them a call before heading off.

    Just called and they do have stock. Was remarkably quick for them so answer the phone too - was expecting a long wait.

    It is very small for a computer, tell her it is just an external hard drive or hide it ;)

    They have older ones to shift? Some people still want them because of the DVD drive. :confused:

    I assume most apple stores have a few to shift.

    Just picked up my mini and a magic trackpad - cant wait to start using it :)

    So many little things in Windows 7 that have been annoying me recently.

    I didn't notice if they had any of the old model on offer sorry - they had the new one on display but someone was using it.

    It might be the old Mini Server on display, they look the same. I thought it was until checked the specs

    Pffff... really? You want to pay £479 for the entry level 2010 Mini?

    Choice is yours, of course: but it's horrible value, mate. Particularly when another fifty quid buys something significantly quicker (albeit with slightly inferior graphics, and sans SuperDrive).


    Bad buy, if you ask me. Which you didn't! Ignore at will...!

    Maybe it is, the genius claimed it was the new one but he could have been fibbing.
