|Mac Mini: 2005-2014?
There was some discussion of the Apple TV "TV" app... but without a live TV service, I kind of fail to see the point.
Most disappointingly, no spec bump for the Mac Mini.
It wasn't even mentioned.
I suppose that I understand. Apple doesn't really care about a computer as simple and boring as the Mac Mini anymore.
They'd much rather sell us the much fancier and more profitable MacBook Pros.
And sure - they're great laptops, with innovative new features!
But if Apple is done with the Mini, they need to say so.
How can Apple, in good conscience, continue to sell 2014-era Mac Minis, multiple years later, at full retail?
If Apple made it known that the Mac Mini is scheduled to be sunsetted - or has already been cancelled - we could plan accordingly.
I'd begrudingly buy an old Mini, secondhand, ideally with specs that could handle home server duties, and I'd move forward.
The status quo - in which Apple enters its THIRD YEAR selling the same non-upgradeable Mac Minis, at full retail price, is not fair to Apple consumers.
