Reports have begun to surface that Apple may discontinue the Mac mini in the near future. Both AppleInsider and Mac 360 published articles within the last week speculating that the end is near for the mini.
- AppleInsider :: Closing the Book on Apple’s Mac Mini, by Kasper Jade
- Mac 360 :: Say It Ain’t So: Apple To Drop The Mac Mini? by Ron McElfresh
Both articles list reasons to support their suspicion, but of course nothing official has been released by Apple on this possibility. Our administrative assistants use Mac minis in our office, and we have found them to be excellent for this purpose. The main draws for us were the features, price, size, and ability to use our existing monitors, keyboards, and mice.
