Mac mini, iPad Pro, MacBook Air, 100 Million Mac users, and more on the AppleInsider Podcast

This week on the AppleInsider Podcast, Victor and William talk about the Mac mini, the notion that 100 Million Mac users can't be wrong, and the iPad Pro.

AppleInsider editor Victor Marks and writer William Gallagher discuss:

  • The MacBook Air remains one of Victor's favorite devices, and is glad the machine is back, but it does seem like a weird fit in the product lineup between 12" MacBook and 13" MacBook Pro.
  • The Mac mini just staggers. Victor does an inflation calculation, and the machine feels like good value. $499 in 2005 dollars is about $650 today. The Mac mini at $799 delivers a lot of machine vs a 2005 model, although it's a little light in the storage department as an end-user machine.
  • Analysts responded positively to the announcement of new Macs and the iPad Pro - we recorded this before the earnings call, so at the time, we didn't know it would be so short-lived.
