Headless iMac A Reality: Meet Mini Mac
from the so-it-goes... dept
Well, as was completely expected thanks to over eager legal team spilling the beans on which rumor sites were right about what, it appears that Apple has released a "headless iMac," called the "Mini Mac." The low end version is supposed to ship for under $500. Of course, the real trick may be convincing people why they want this. There are some obvious uses to the more geeky among us, but having the applications that really excite the average person may still be a challenge. In the meantime, though, it looks like Apple is trying to step in in-between the iPod and the computer, and show all those companies who keep trying and failing, how a home media hub is really supposed to work. Update: The press is now coming out with all the details, including the flash-based tiny iPod that can only be played in "shuffle" mode.
