Poll @ Macminute - Most Significant Mac Event of 2005

Still a few weeks 'til 2006, but here's a poll anyway:

I think it's no contest; imagine a few years ago -- hell, earlier this year -- if you got an e-mail from the future with the headline "Apple switches to Intel chips".

Obviously, it was the splintering of the DealMac forums.

Discontinuing the pink iPod mini.

Of course they discontinued the rest of the iPod minis at the same time, but discontinuing the pink one was epochal, IMHO.

The iPod mini's were always mentioned to me by clients and, as Gute says, the pink was the favorite. I loved the ruggedness and form factor of the mini, and was really hoping for it to become the norm for iPods (i.e., the shuffle would go through a transformation and get a screen, and become the mini, and the regular line would shrink down to the mini's form factor and case material). Alas, it was not to be.



(BTW, it's spelled < y'all >.)

I actually think the Mac mini is a bigger deal than the switch to Intel. I mean, who but developers will really care about the underlying architecture? I don't care what the chip is inside my Mac, as long as it doesn't overheat and is fast. If Apple feels Intel is the best choice, great. If they switch to AMD a few years from now, great. If they start up their own chip line 10 years from now, great.

What I do care about is being able to buy a Mac for as few bucks as possible. The Mac mini, while not for everyone, is a fantastic computer and an answer for all those cheap crap PCs that Best Buy and Circuit City pimp out on the unsuspecting public.
