Apple releases Mac mini, iPod shuffle

Apple released the Mac mini and the iPod shuffle at this morning’s MacWorld Expo keynote address.

Mac mini

The Mac mini is available for $500 in an anodized aluminum enclosure housing a 1.25GHz G4 processoor, 40 GB hard drive, 256 MB of RAM, slot-loading Combo Drive, and ATI Radeon 9200 graphics card with dedicated memory.

iPod shuffle

The iPod shuffle is available in 512 MB and 1 GB flavors for $100 and $150 respectively. The music player has no display and doubles as a USB data stick. The new iTunes Autofill feature should be very interesting for loading up the latest podcasts. What is the “(2)” for in the picture you might ask? “Do not eat iPod shuffle.”
