Apple admits mini over-spec

By Derek Sooman on October 3, 2005, 1:14 PM
Due to some blunder or another, it has emerged that Apple has shipped some Mac minis with better than intended specifications. The company will not as yet provide any confirmation that the reported specs of 1.5GHz processor, extra video RAM and Bluetooth 2.0 are correct. If this is true, then there are a happy bunch of Mini owners out there with better hardware in their boxes then they paid for.

The enhanced minis are shipping in the existing packaging designed for the 1.42GHz model. Presumably Apple has a surfeit of boxes to use up before it officially upgrades the mini and in this age of environmental awareness we should be glad that it is not just chucking them away.

Now let's watch Apple try and demand the lucky customers return their models for an "upgrade";)

Is it me or Apple often has problems with hardware? Breaking LCDs, (Ipod)unchangable rechargable batteries, (Ipod)breaking ribbon wires(G4 iBook, they bill you a 3000$ repair for mainboard replacement when you send it to repair instead)Overspec (This one)Whirring fans (iMac G5 v1)much more.What's good when you can custom-build a computer is that you _choose_ what you put in the box. You know you're not buying !#$%.
