AOpen paradox

AOpen is responding to all the player haters who've accused them of ripping off Apple's design for the Mac mini with their new Pandora PC, saying that the computer wasn't designed to compete with the Mac mini, and that if anything it's Apple that's trying to compete with them, since Apple created the Mac mini to compete with PCs. Not a bad job at deflecting, but it doesn't really make all that much sense, since on some level every Apple computer is designed to convince people to choose it over a PC (just like how on some level every PC is designed to convince people to choose it over every other PC out there). Besides, it's not really the competition part that seems to bother anyone, it's that Pandora's design seems so obviously inspired by that of the Mac mini.
