The price of the entry-level Mac Mini in the Irish Apple Store has been cut by €80, bringing it down to €719. According to Engadget this cut has been replicated internationally, except in the US.
The mini computer was upgraded back in June and boasts a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo CPU, 2GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive for that price. There’s also an SD card reader, 802.11n WiFi, HDMI-out and a Mini DisplayPort jack and a NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics card.
All this comes in a package that is just 3.6cm tall and Apple have impressively fit the power-block in there too.
There’s been no change to that in recent times but the slightly lower price is certainly hoped to revive a bit of interest. Perhaps Apple are making savings in compact components from its new MacBook Airs and has decided to pass it onto the consumer?
