bizarre, imac 17" is now $200 cheaper, while no price shift for mini.

Cost me five week's pay for my first base model Mac Mini (the original), with Office for Mac, ready to use back in 2005. Add another 2 - 3 weeks pay for a monitor and other peripherals.
Congrats on resurrecting a nearly TEN YEAR OLD thread. That has to be some kind of record...
no love for the mini
Might drop it by $50, a month before they come out with the new model in 2018.
It's currently 499$ in the USA, which is the lowest price I think it's ever been. I believe the original PowerPC Minis were 499$ then Apple increased the price by 100$ when the Intel Mini was first released. Maybe Apple will punish us with a new Apple TV form factor and a 100$ price increase.
