New Mac Mini – maxi price tag

I thought Apple had got the whole ‘overpriced, under spec’d but nice looking’ thing under control recently, but they seem to have slipped with this latest round of updates.

Was looking at picking up one of the new mini’s, but when compared to an all-round better spec’d Dell box (except the nasty OS included of course ;) they just seem overpriced…

Better CPU? Check!
Better GPU? Check!
Bigger HardDrive? Check!
Faster DVD writer? Check
Keyboard & Mouse supplied? Check!
Upgradeable? Check!

Shame, I was waiting for this new model to come out but just can’t justify throwing money away on one.
