Intel based Mac Mini launched.
“Today we’re introducing our third machine, the mac mini based on Intel’s Core Solo processor. It’s two and a half to three times faster in the same box. Also, putting a core duo processor in the Mini, it’s 4.8x to 5.5x faster. We have a product that’s over five times faster in the same form factor. We’ve added gigabit ethernet and doubled the number of USB 2 ports to four. Analog and SPDIF input and output. And its really quiet, it’s a pretty great product…..
….standard features in the new Mac mini, Tiger and iLife 06, Remote and Front Row, Airport Extreme and bluetooth, DVI video out, SPDIF and analog in and out.”
