Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
The company quietly lowers the pricing on some of the PC's build-to-order options at its online Apple Store, including a new price of $325 for replacing the base 256 MB of RAM with 1 GB.Just two weeks after the Mac mini's introduction, Apple Computer Inc. of Cupertino, Calif., has reduced the pricing on some of the build-to-order options on its Mac mini personal computer. These options are available when a customer orders a Mac mini directly from the online Apple Store.
The price of replacing the Mac mini's base 256 MB of RAM with 1 GB dropped from $470 to $325, and the price of adding a combination package of Bluetooth and Airport Extreme 802.11 wireless connectivity came down from $129 to $99.
In addition, the appearance of an 8x SuperDrive built-to-order option seems to have been a mistake; the Apple Store currently offers only a 4x SuperDrive for the Mac mini.
