Mini Mac by Apple

The blog Datapoint at ZDNet points to an amazing explosion of readership for Apple in the last month, a "heightened buzz" which they attribute to announcement of a low cost Mac PC, which also fits into the iPod strategy.

A Special Report at Platinax Internet News entitled "Apple explodes mass marketing" covers not only the "Mac Mini" but also Apple's unprecedented "major incursion into mass consumer shopping", citing to NixLog.

There is surely enough dissatisfaction out there about Microsoft Windows, its instability and security problems, that many will now give a cheaper Apple a second look. The PC competitors always had some advantages. We ourselves look fondly back to the days of our Atari Mega ST4 (in those days with absolutely dependable 4MB RAM) which ran without a hitch for years and NEVER crashed - not once. We have a good friend who composes music and today still runs his synthesizer programs on a Korg workstation using aging Ataris. Incredible.

By contrast, our Windows XP PC still crashes (freezes) regularly as it reaches its memory and virtual memory limits.

So it will be interesting to see what the "Mini Mac" can do.
