When Steve Jobs on Tuesday said the Mac mini was "a stripped down version" of a Mac computer, he really meant to say it's a stripped down version. Users who are considering putting in an order are getting disappointed after they start adding memory, wifi and other "necessary" options. For Jeff Nolan it raised the price tag for the $499 device to $806.
Apple sells most of its memory and networking expansions at a premium. I've always bought memory for my Mac computers at some online store. But this might not work with the Mac mini, because Apple seems to have welded the device shut, Jupiter research analyst Joe Wilcox points out.
For Wilcox its proves that Apple wants the Mac mini to be mostly a consumer electronics device and less of a computer. Consumers are used to their video players and stereos being closed devices, but expect to go wild on their computers with a screwdriver.
