While everyone was all distracted by Apple's upgrade of its iMacs to Core 2 Duo status and 24-inchatude, the Mac minis were also given a speed bump, eliminating the Core Solo once and for all. Good.
Now both minis are sporting shiny Intel Core Duo processors, with the $799 mini using a 1.83GHz Core Duo, up from the 1.66GHz Core Duo it was using before. The lesser $599 model abandoned that wussy 1.5GHz Intel Core Solo and graduated to the 1.66GHz chip that its more powerful bro possessed until today.
Call us bratty, but we're thinking it's too bad the Cupertino clan didn't offer at least one mini with a Core 2 Duo.
