So, I basically have my credit card ready early today
pressing F5 on Engadget
to refresh their WWDC coverage waiting for Steve Jobs to say something,
anything about the Mac mini or any other Mac hardware updates. Several sites have reported that they think
it will be scraped, and I’ve been praying for the past month that Jobs would
either confirm the death or announce an upgrade to at dump it up to a Core 2
Duo. And yet, Apple announced no new hardware or
hardware upgrades today!
The mini has been my ticket to get a Mac but because of it’s
weak specs I’ve yet to purchase one. If
they end up killing the Mac mini (or effectively failing to upgrade it) I don’t
get to finally try out a Mac. I have no
interest in a MacBook or MacBook Pro as my current Thinkpad X40 works just
great and my next upgrade is set to be a X61 Tablet (I hope). I also have no interest in having another
monitor on my desk, so the iMac is out.
And unless someone out there wants to donate some cash for me to get a
Mac (hint, hint) the Mac Pro at over $2,000 is a bit out of my price range.
So, should I start a donate for Chris to get a Mac campaign or
should Apple just upgrade the Mac mini?
