A budget-priced computer for individuals who are interested in making the transition to Mac, especially those that already have Apple products like iPods. At $500 for a basic unit, it has been selling like hot cakes ever since it was released in late Janurary.
There are many people who thought that the Mac mini would flop when it hit the markets. They were idiots, since they didn't seem to realize that the failure of the Cube was largely tied to high price that nobody was willing to pay, even if it was a bitchin' computer.
Apple learned from its mistake.
If you can remember those futuristic movies where the computers were integrated into the environment, you already have a good idea of where Apple could take the Mac mini.
