According to Gizmodo, the Mac Mini’s dead as a donkey. A dead one, I mean.
The Mac mini may be pronounced dead as soon as today’s Apple earnings conference call, as two major retailers in Europe have confirmed to me that they can’t order any more of the little computers. While this could signal an updated model coming in, they have been told by Apple to expect no more of it. Their impression is that–once again–the Mac Mini may be dead dead DEAD for real, even while you can still order it at the Apple Store.
I never bought one — for some reason, it being Apple’s cheapest Mac somehow made it seem more over-expensive, not less — but this is still something of a shame, if only because I still think the form factor is gorgeous. And if I were sticking with an Apple only house, I’d still pick the Mac Mini as a theater PC over the Apple TV.
