The iPod shuffle is Apples entry into the flash memory based music player market. Looks good and should sell well, especially since it has the iPod name. But I already have an iPod, so I doubt I’ll be getting one of these anytime soon.
The Mac mini is a really small (6.5 inches wide and 2 inches tall) Mac without a monitor and a mini price, starting at $499. Apple finally has something that can complete on price which the average cheap Windows PC. And it looks really nice too. If I didn’t already have a iMac G4 that does what I need, I’d buy one of these. Like this blog at O’Reily says, the size and power of the Mac mini make it a very versatile computer.
