You know.. if they can put a G5 into a 1U server, I really don't think a G5 laptop is that far off! Very exciting!

iPod Mini

Yeah that's what I am wondering.. what about Safari!

Now maybe I just don't understand.. but why would you buy an iPod mini that has 4GB of storage for $249 when you can get a 15GB iPod for $299, $50 more? That's with almost 4 times the amount of storage?

the 1984 ad looked promising, but i guess a 20th anniversary mac would cut into the 20" imac sales .. i can still hope for the superbowl, but im guessing the only ad for apple will be the pepsi one

Exactly what I was thinking! $50 difference?? I was prepared to go buy one at $199 but $249 just doesn't pull my wallet open. Maybe they got greedy!

Either that ore they are trying to push sales of the new 15GB.. I just don't get it.. Im sure the cost is not proportional by any means, but I think they would be willing to take less of a cut for that iPod mini. *shrug* oh well.. I sold a lot of my CD's to get my iPod so I don't need to worry about it, but it's still a bit strange.

Apple is known for announcing quite a few products and upgrades several weeks after a keynote.. so you might see the 20th anniversary mac then. Hopefully we'll see a new Safari soon also. Maybe even new iPod software.. to make it even more kick butt

Possibly a cheap tactic to drive 15GB Ipod sales? I'm buying when they drop to $199. Also, check the Mini IPOD pictures and you'll see they are not quite as sexy as the IPOD.

They don't come in white with polished back.. They are anodized alum. Still cool but at $249 it's just not very compelling.

i think the Jobs and the Apple marketing department are going blind again. nobody is going to spend $250 so they can play 1000 low-grade MP3s from a pastel blue iPod. maybe if they had limited-edition Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton editions they would be worth the $250...

I could use the new iPod when Im working out though.. so that's a bonus, but I would be happy to use my current one also and proportionally it was a much better price than the mini
