    6 computers for a family of 6 is excessive, regardless of the type of computer.



    Remember the good old days when a family had 1 TV set? There's no reason why every family member needs their own computer. That is the death of thrift - it's buying stuff you can do without, rather than buying a more expensive model than the absolute best bargain.

    My guess would be that new products will be announced the following week, when Apple can also say they are now shipping iLife '09. Hopefully this will help get those new 17" MacBook Pros out the door too.



    Barack Obama Mac Mini, Barack Obama iMac, Barack Obama Mac Pro to go with all that crap Barack Obama merchandise that people are buying.

    No, that'd be perfect. If there is a Mini update, and I stress if, then it will undoubtedly be unimpressive, especially given how long we've waited. A quiet update is what they want.



    Me: "Hey, are those new Mini's over there? But for $799 I can get twice as bet..."

    Apple: "Look! A black guy just became president of the United States!"

    I was just checking Intel's processor info tool and it lists the new quad core mobile chips as being just 45W.

    It also lists the 3.06GHz Core 2 Extreme as that. I think the Mini CPUs are listed as 35W.



    The Q9000 and Q9100 look like they would go in Apple's lineup ok.
