Macworld Day One - Pictures and videos Site News
I shot a bunch of stills and video clips today, primarily at the keynote. Take a look at any/all you wish. The video clip collection includes: In addition, there's a gallery of 40+ images available, at 800x600 resolution. Make sure you check out my hand wrapped around the new Mac mini, to get a sense of just how small it is!

Great pics & vids, thanks!

Could you post a pic of the Mac mini with a dollar bill or something with a standard size that we can compare to. I don't know how big your hands are so it's difficult to get an accurate idea of how small it is.

Thanks!

Nice close-up pic of mac mini.

Looking at the dvd-slot, it looks as though it is about the size of a cd jewel case, only square.

Quite small, although the other pics showing the mass of cables sticking out make it look a bit sad :-(

The cables do look less-than-typical-mac elegant which is why I'm going to spring for the bluetooth version.

Mac Minis to Jewel Cases
Authored by: Eravau on Jan 12, '05 06:38:19PM

The new Mac Mini is 1" wider, 1.5" deeper, and the same height as five stacked CD jewel cases.

Image 38 of 'Steve's iPod' - what version of iTunes is that? I've got the latest update and the options don't look anything like that. Or, is that just for the iPod shuffle?

Yea, you only see those options when you connect a Shuffle. It's in the iPod Options area.

How come when you option click on a video link it says not found? And when you open a video link in a new tab or window you can't view the source?

I wanted to Download them instead of watching them in safari but for some reason I can't. I have to load them in a new page or tab, then save them from there.

Was looking at the photo which shows the bank of Mac minis with the Apple displays, and was just wondering, will a Mac mini fit onto the display's "foot"?

That would look quite smart, especially with the wireless mouse and keyboard, and you could run any cables through the hole in the display's stand. Shame you can't get a twin power brick instead of two separate ones though.

Is the audio out an optical/regular combo jack like on the iMac G5?

If so, all you would need is a Bluetooth remote and you could have one under your TV & plugged into a sound system for the true living room computing experience.

As far as I can tell from the tech specs pages for the Mac Mini and iMac, it's just analog audio out for the Mini. The audio istings for iMac and Mac Mini say:
  • Mac Mini: Headphone/audio line out
  • iMac: Headphone/optical digital audio output
Note the optical in the iMac description. Also notable is the fact that the iMac has an audio line in port. The Mac Mini does not. I guess if you want all the tricks you pay a more tricked out price.

I noticed somebody on MacInTouch comparing prices on an iMac 20" and a Mini with a 20" Cinema display. In that case, the iMac came out about $57 cheaper. If you compare a 17" iMac with a Mini plus non-Apple RAM upgrades and 17" non-Apple display, the price comes out about $400 in favor of the Mini.

I suppose Apple's willing to take a hit in their other departments as long as they can get people on OS X.

I also suppose that they're banking on a lot of people not doing that math.

The maths seems to show that the iMac is likely to stay apple's most popular machine for people wanting a whole package, while those looking to replace their virus-ridden PC but keep their keyboard and monitor will go for the mini.

Also, how about those people who have a PC for games etc keeping their PC and hooking up the mini to a keyboard/monitor switch box to have the best of both worlds???

I got an email from a PC user saying his friends are trading in their DVD players for a mini and hooking it up to their TV... now there is an idea - competition for Media Centre??
