How likely is it that Apple will introduce as standard a Mac Mini with a SSD? The Mac Mini is now the only computer sold by Apple that has a spinning HDD and any upgrade to the SSD is expensive. The Mac Mini is such an uncompetitively priced computer given it's internals. For the same price ($899) of a Mac Mini with a SSD you can buy a Macbook Air (Mini has a larger SSD and more RAM). It seems Apple doesn't want the Mac Mini to succeed. It redesigned the Mini to make it significantly more difficult to upgrade the machines to allow for a more rapid obsolescence. We all know the single greatest performance upgrade anyone can make for a computer is to replace a spinning HDD with a SSD; so why does Apple continue to install a spinning HDD? It is handicapping it's own product's performance. How long can Apple go on using a spinning HDD? It is an embarrassment for a company that prides itself on performance. Are there sales figures for the Mac Mini? Is it such a niche product that Apple just doesn't care about it anymore? I want to buy a Mac Mini and probably will once it gets a boost with Skylake but I'll be loathed to pay the extra money for the SSD. It is only Apple reluctance at making the Mac Mini a competitive machine (and making it more difficult to upgrade the machine) which has stopped me buying it already.
