Pinch the Macalope
He actually agrees with ZDNet’s Larry Dignan is about the Mac mini.
Not completely, of course (there’s no real comparison between the mini and a netbook, for example), but at the price point the mini is at — even with nine gajillion ports in the back — it just doesn’t seem to cut it. OK, if you find yourself a cheap monitor and already have a mouse and keyboard you can get into the Mac market for $700 or so, but the Macalope was really hoping for more here. Or less, as the case may be.
The iMac, on the other hand, is a terrific value.
UPDATE: Adrian Kingsley-Hughes comes to the mini’s defense!
Has anyone checked the warp field? This is starting to get alternate-universe-ish.
