  1. This keynote is going to be the story of the week.

    The mainstream & electronic press is going to be all over these announcements. Free press for Apple. Yeah, baby!

  2. Already ordered my Mac Mini! I can’t wait! THANK YOU APPLE FOR FINALLY HEARING THE PRAYERS OF A POOR COLLEGE STUDENT! ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

  3. Ryan: “in your choice of Real or Windows Media”. Gee… Thanks… -_- …

    Ryan, think of it this way,

    All of us that keep up with Apple will already be aware of these announcements. The folks that usually only use PCs (and thus Real or Windows media) will finally get to see what their next computer is going to look like. Hopefully it will prompt some of them to go visit an Apple store.

    I agree, however, that it sucks that the video is not also posted in Quicktime.

  4. “Peice of Shit”

    “Mac mini houses a 1.25 or 1.42GHz G4 processor, 40 or 80GB hard drive, a slot-loading CD-R/DVD-ROM optical drive, 256MB DDR SDRAM and ATI Radeon 9200 graphics chip with 32MB dedicated DDR SDRAM”

    A 9200 with shared memory? And no G5 chip? Get A clue Steve.

    Load up with cans of compressed air people.

  5. This thing is amazing! The computer is really only $200!!! It comes with $300 in software. Let’s see the PC’s try to match this!

  6. Add a Mac to your DELL! I always thought that it would be nice to add a small box next to my Mac to have full PC compatability instead of using a virtual PC. The is the same idea in reverse. Buy a cheap DELL PC with LCD and for $499, give it full Mac compatability.

    Way to go Apple!

  7. “A 9200 with shared memory?”

    No, a 9200 with it’s own 32MB of memory. Of course, last I knew, you couldn’t use Core Image (part of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger) with such a puny graphics card…

    “And no G5 chip?”

    Nope. I’ll admit, I don’t get real thrilled, either. Consider that Dell’s $499 (after rebate) PC comes with a 2.8GHz Pentium 4–no Celerons here.

  8. I thought the speed thing was over. Pentium speeds are twice as much as equivalent PowerPCs but both do tasks the same. Different architechture. As a matter of fact Intel no longer boasts about speed as it is irrelevant. There are other factors that are part of the equation on how fast a computer is.
