Apple's Mac mini soldiers on for a little while longer

Although Apple's new iMacs have been garnering the majority of the attention today, another update was taking place under the radar screen.

Apple quietly performed some updates to its Mac mini range. The entry-level $599 Mac mini now sports a 1.83GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory and an 80GB HDD. Stepping up the high-end $799 model gets you a 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory and a 120GB HDD.

Standalone options for the two models include the option for 2GB of DDR2 memory along with a 160GB HDD.

Both models come standard with OS X 10.4, Front Row, the newly introduced iLife '08 and an Apple Remote.

Apple first introduced the Mac mini in January of 2005. At the time, the machine was outfitted with 256MB of memory and came equipped with a 1.25Ghz or 1.43GHz PowerPC G4 processor. Apple last year updated the Mac mini with Intel Core Solo and Core 2 Duo processors and bumped the standard memory to 512MB.
