The Mac Mini’s were also altered on this recent new product presentations. So there is no longer a Mac Mini Core Solo 1.5Ghz. The new line-up is:
- Mac Mini Core Duo 1.66 Ghz / 512MB RAM / 60GB HD / Combo
- Mac Mini Core Duo 1.83GHz / 512MB RAM / 80GB HD / SuperDrive
The good news is that prices were not changed. The new entry-level 1.66 Ghz Core Duo maintains the price of the ancient 1.5 Ghz Core Solo. Will we see Core 2 Duo chips next spring ? I’d for sure prefer better harddrives or even a dedicated memory video card since \“memory available to Mac OS X may vary depending on graphics needs. Minimum graphics memory usage is 80MB, resulting in 432MB of system memory available\” for a 512MB original set.\r\n\r\nSo, fuelling it with RAM, this is an excelent Textmate machine to do some coding, i’d say.
