Where do you get off saying we can't complain? That's a horrific, narrow attitude. I think the mini will be good for some people, but I take exception to two issues - 1) It's too expensive for the base model. This is supposed to be the entry level computer that wins over your standard Windows goon. Except now its approaching twice the price of the original mini. I'm betting it has an impressive profit-margin for the company though. 2) Lack of a discreet GPU option yet again. But the ability to add an eGPU partially offsets that, I suppose. Still, should have it as an option. I honestly feel that they set their price points to keep demand down. Otherwise I was wanting to order one yesterday, but I decided not to. (because of the price mainly.)

It's by no coincidence that Apple has been havingquality and design problems since that time.Also, for example, Johhny Ive did not design the update to the current Apple Magic Mouse, that one, with the charging port on the bottom.
