Mac mini

Just days after adding it to their website, Target has yanked the Mac mini, claiming concerns about availability. Word is that it's really about profit margins; Target's got a 10%-off coupon code out, and the coupon brings the price of the mini down to $450, which is reportedly less than Target's wholesale price for the computer. Given that other online shops can turn around mini orders in under a week, and that Target is still selling the iPod shuffle despite claiming delays of 2-to-6 weeks, we'd tend to believe the profit-margin claims. Oh, and forget about using the coupon to save $15 on a 1GB shuffle; shipping charges and sales tax wipe out the savings.
