did I just see the first ever downgrade release????

I guess Tim could not say this is the best Mac Mini ever this time.

without Steve Jobs, Apple is no longer Apple. no vision is expected. but downgrade??! to promote Mac Pro?

There is no defending this Mini.

It was gimped and the price was only reduced $50 in Canada.

Yearly downgrades now?

Good post. Ignore the apologists. Mini fans got reamed by Apple.

It's a lesson in if you want performance then buy an iMac or Pro. ;)

Maybe we should wait for some reviews to see if the base is slower then the last one....on a specs positive it now comes with 4g ram compared to 2g,has usb 3 compared to usb 2.

Not a biggie.

Both my Minis came with adaptors that I didn't want, so I had to buy another. Better to not include an adaptor in the box (and the price), and let customers buy one to suit.
It would have also been nice if the the 2014 999$ high end mini was not out performed by they 2 year old 799 Mid 2012 Mini.

I would rather the did not charge 200$ more for an inferior computer. I guess you can't please everyone!!
