    from freemacblog.com:



    I work for a company that goes through a lot of Mac minis. A lot of minis. A couple hundred a month.

    Well, today we called to place our order for our next big batch of minis and we were told “We’re not able to take large orders for Mac minis right now.” And that was it.

    At first, my boss got a little upset because we do this all the time. But, I reminded him of a certain Apple Event scheduled for Feb. 28th planned for some “fun new products from Apple.” That calmed him a bit.

    So, it seems that you can order the current minis one by one, but not in bulk. This makes me believe that we’ll be seeing the first Intel Mac mini…and it certainly won’t be this ridiculous cube.

    im not feeling the green design, and the only buisness I could see that would go through that many minis would be one of those free mini/ipod/ibook sites when you get 5 referrals.
