Five Things That Suck On The Mac mini


I'd better get these out of the way before the pundits step in:

  • There are several viewpoints on whether or not It's not user-serviceable (for RAM upgrades at least), but lots of people will be complaining about "only" 256MB of RAM.
  • AirPort Express (Wi-Fi) is a Build-to-Order option, which means we're completely out of luck here in Portugal.
  • Bluetooth is a Build-to-Order option (which is the only one I think really sucks, since it would do away with USB and drive up Bluetooth keyboard and mouse sales)
  • DVD recording is a Build-to-Order option.
  • You can't mod the case with ridiculous neon thingies, transparent fans, etc. (but I'm positive people will do it regardless).
