Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on November 2nd, 2010

Apple has quietly cut the Mac mini price point in international markets. No one is sure why. The change is reflected in all markets which are not priced in US currency. As an example, folks in the UK can now purchase the two Mac mini models for £599 and £879. The old prices were £649 and £929.

In other European countries, the pricing has dropped to 709 Euro and 999 Euro. Nothing new for us in the States, where we have to pay $699 and $999, respectively.

Posted in Mac by Conner Flynn on March 1st, 2010

A Mac mini with HDMI seems like common sense, even if Apple hasn’t delivered so far. But that may change soon, according to AppleInsider, who were told by “two people familiar with the matter” that prototypes of a Mac mini with an HDMI port have been showing up in the inner circles.

One of these prototypes is apparently based on NVIDIA’s MCP89 chipset, but Intel’s ongoing licensing dispute with Nvidia will prevent Apple from using the MCP89 chipset alongside its latest generation of Nehalem-based Core i3, i5 and i7 processors if it is the chipset used in the final product.

This is quite a site to behold. It’s a functional Mac mini, JBL Spot subwoofer and WMF1 coffeemaker shoved into a defunct iMac DV case. And it’s called the iMac CS. It’s bizarre, yet beautiful, like a gift from the Apple store in heaven. Klaus Diebel has done an amazing job.

Yes it’s a coffee-making media server with its own sound system. A custom version will cost you about €300 (or $431), but you can probably build your own for less money.

Leaked photo of the next-gen Mac Mini?This is interesting. According to MacRumors, this could possibly be the next-gen Mac mini we’ve been waiting for. It seems to correspond to other rumored “leaks” that have been popping up and it sports five USB ports, FireWire 800, Mini DisplayPort, and Mini DVI. Hmmm. Photoshop? Wishful thinking?

This pic also hit AppleInsider at the same time and the MacRumors forum poster has included some alleged specs: a 2GHz Core 2 Duo processor with 3MB Level 2 cache, 2GB DDR 3 memory at 1066MHz and a ATA Super Drive. The question is, are you buying this?
