That would be sweet as I'm planning on buying a Mac Mini in a month or so (I really can't wait until the new Intel based Macs are with us).Oscar Castillo said:With the switch to x86 and the PPC systems losing their appeal to potential buyers, Apple should lower prices now to move some of these systems.
