“In the past I have written articles which some construed as being critical of the Apple Computer company – but this is not one of those,” Allan Jackson writes for The Sunday Tribune & Independent Online. “The launch of the way-cool iPod portable music player a few years ago has sent the company’s profits soaring and I believe that the launch last week of the Mac mini computer will send sales shooting even further into the stratosphere.”

It is a mere 16.51cm wide, 5.08cm high and weighs less than 1.5kg,” Jackson writes. “The minute I saw a picture of the Mac mini I wanted one.
