Well I bought one (Mac Mini 2011)
Everyone knows an Apple tech-refresh is imminent, people aren't buying because of it, and so bargains can be had (not that the words 'bargain' and 'Apple' often appear in the same sentence). To that end I was happy with the £110-off deal on a new sealed 2011 Mac Mini.
My kids have my old one on a trial basis as their first computer. I've told them that any arguments or messing about will see it confiscated without further warning. It certainly beats the ZX81 I got as my first computer when I was four years older than they are, but kids these days don't really appreciate what they've got.
I didn't enjoy the three hours it took to migrate 48GB of ALAC audio over my wireless network (I had no other way to connect them to both my router and a monitor) and I decided to do it during waking hours in case I got some yes/no/cancel prompt which would have sat unanswered for hours while I slept.
I think I'm going to miss the drive. In fact there's no 'think' about it. It's senseless to have got rid of the optical drive on a system which Apple obviously intended to be a media centre. Every time I buy a CD now, I'm going to have to rip it on one of the house's other computers, or buy an external drive. Madness.
