Report: Apple says ‘not able to take large orders of Mac minis right now’ ahead of Feb 28th event

According to a blogger on, he was recently told by an Apple representative that the company is “not able to take large orders of Mac minis right now… it seems that you can order the current minis one by one, but not in bulk. This makes me believe that we’ll be seeing the first Intel Mac mini…and it certainly won’t be this ridiculous cube.

  1. Sweet, let’s hope, I want to make the transition to mac from my 5 year old dell, but want something thats supports basic CoreImage and can display HD at a decent res.

    Can a consumer PC be labelled as fun?

    Dear Steve,

    Just wanted to say you’re a fsking genius! Every time you send out these cryptic invites or a MacWorld approaches, your loyal fan base, blogshpere and the press go wild. The avalanche of speculation feeds on itself until we’re all sure we’re going to burst.
