Remember when I said ‘stop procrastinating’ if you were planning on ordering a Mini? Well Kudos to you if you ignored me, sort of. Apple recently cut the prices on Mini upgrades, making the Mac mini an even more attractive package than before. The Bluetooth and AirPort Extreme combo option now goes for $99 ($129 before), the 1GB DDR333 SDRAM upgrade is now $325 ($475 before, this one bit the most), the 80GB ultra ATA hard drive upgrade now goes for $50 ($80 before) and last but not least the ‘Superdrive’ option now includes a 8x drive instead of the prior 4x model, the price however remains the same.
Now these upgrades from apple are starting to make a lot more sense, previous ‘suggestions’ of frugality when up-grading, are withdrawn.
