New Apple Mac Minis
As expected following reports of delays to bulk orders is today's announcement of an upgraded Mac mini line. The new systems eliminate single-core computers from Apple's Mac lineup altogether, replacing the earlier 1.5GHz Core Solo base model with a 1.66GHz Core Duo. The higher-end Superdrive model also sees an upgrade to a 1.83 GHz Core Duo. Memory, hard drive space, and pricing are largely unchanged: new to the line is the option of a 160GB hard drive. All new Mac minis are slated to ship within 1-2 business days.
