What exactly was disappointing about this? We got a new Mac, a new Front Row, and some iPod accessories. Maybe if you were expecting Apple to announce everything you had ever hoped for, okay. But if you’ve had your head in reality for the past week, this event wasn’t a letdown.

Then again, I don’t understand the complaining about the GMA950 in the Mini, either.

No firewire?

On board video?

As Chris Holland said: “OMFG”!!!!


I wasn’t dissapointed… I was hoping to see a new mac mini… apart from them including a much needed tv tuner in the system (unlikely at this point) i can’t think of much else to ask for… iPod boombox thing will be useful for some people I’m sure, leather iPod cases are pretty nice. New mac mini is awesome, from the invitation I didn’t expect a macworld caliber annoucement.


Great! Now where is the webcast!?!!? How am I supposed to even go make a sandwich without seeing the video!? :)
