    How could anyone ever use 17 USB Ports?

    @6: If it’s a handmade mockup, then it’s a damned good one. I think this can be best said in code:

    Select strValidity

    Case: “Leaked Prototype”
    Discover source
    Fire source from job

    Case: “Handmade Mockup”
    Discover source
    Give job

    @7: that’s as succinct a response as I think I have ever read. Dig it.

    I’ve started a new blog about this. Should be interesting to see how Apple will refresh the new mac minis.

    Why would Apple decide to put 17 USB ports on anything? This is obviously a fake. Jeez guys, how gulible can someone be?

    You can get a Kia with comparable specs for a lot less money than a BMW 1 Series too 2nd mortgage, but that doesn’t mean people in a position to make that choice would want to get one.

    As for Vista doing everything you want – in the same sense that a 1953 Chevy did everything I want in a car. It just didn’t do it, by today’s standards, very well – but if you go down a checklist with “Goes forward? Yes. Goes in reverse? Yes. Stops? Yes. Has headlights? yes” you’ll find it has all the boxes checked.

    Doodes, you totally got screwed, lulz! My new Mac Mini has 18 USB ports, plus seven vieo outs. I busted it up with a hammer and ate it with some hummus. Mmmmmmm…. Cadmium.

    Well, first they use mac……enough said. Who would pay an extra $500 for a pathetic ‘Apple’ logo. Mac has already conceded that their product is inferior by moving to real hardware and basing their software on Unix/Linux.

    The original poster has put a video up:

    Could still be a prototype or homemade mock. I wouldn’t know how to tell if it was or not, but for the curious, take a gander.
