Apple has quietly cut the Mac mini price point in international markets. No one is sure why. The change is reflected in all markets which are not priced in US currency. As an example, folks in the UK can now purchase the two Mac mini models for £599 and £879. The old prices were £649 and £929.
In other European countries, the pricing has dropped to 709 Euro and 999 Euro. Nothing new for us in the States, where we have to pay $699 and $999, respectively.
