Apple had a surprise announcement of the new Mac mini. It’s now in an all-aluminum case. The form factor is a bit shorter but wider than the previous Mac minis. They also upgraded the graphics and processors, making them faster (though I would still get the 2.5 GHz model and upgrade it to 2.66 GHz).
I am thinking of this as an alternative to an expensive 27″ iMac. I would forego with the processing power of the iMac but I would save a lot enough to buy an iPad 🙂 .
I’ll wait and see.
