    Why hasn't the webmaster fixed the title? :eek: It is the only forum, actually sub-forum, that doesn't use all initial caps, and it catches my eye unnecessarily every time before I click the button. Or is this a sly trick or comment on the size of the smallest Mac desktop? :rolleyes:
    "Mac mini" -->> "Mac Mini" please.

    It's the way Apple markets the name. The 'm' is mini.

    I don't think its meant as a discrimination of the smallest mac desktop... but rather as apple markets it with a small m in mini so why should the forum change it?

    Yup, a quick trip to the Apple website will answer this
    The "m" is definitely not capitalized

    The real trouble is with the name of the site itself, which has been missing a "u" ever since its inception ;)

    WRONG.

    See iOS 5, iPhone, iPod touch, iPad forums and subforums. MacRumors forums conform to the standard Apple marketing names for their products. A "Mac Mini" forum would offend Apple fanatics as much as an "Iphone" or "iTouch" forum would.

    Sorry.

    It's a sly trick by Apple: http://www.apple.com/macmini/

    Correct. I complained when they created an 'iPod Touch" forum. Apple doesn't use a capital T.

    I heard they reduced the Mini to a mini to shave off weight and size. :)

    So, that is a simple answer. :cool:
    However, open the Mac mini forum, then look up to the top left under the Threads and down ... There are two "Mac Mini" instances, so the forum has no consistency ...:D If we are following Apple's lead here, it should be universal.
    Ah, such nitpicking, and I started it myself.:eek: (somebody erase this thread!):eek:

    No kidding! What a ridiculous thing to be obsessed about! While you're reading so carefully, try reading the Forum Rules, keeping in mind that the Guides you speak about are written by posters:

    It's been stated in here, but Apple uses a lowercase "m" in the Mac mini marketing.

    Same thing for when they had the iPod mini
