Mac mini prices drop outside the US

Reghardware is reporting that Apple has dropped the international price on Mac mini from £649 to £599 for the base model. In fact, Apple implemented a £50 price reduction across the board in the UK.

Those paying in Euros also benefit, as that same model (2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo) dropped from 809 € to 709 €. Additionally, the 2.66GHz Snow Leopard Server mini also dropped 150 € in price to 999 € (from 1149 €). Mini prices remained unchanged in Canada, the U.S. and and Australia.

GigaOM suggests the drop could be a response to the Mac's recent loss of worldwide market share. That's certainly possible. In any case, the diminutive mini just became more attractive for a number of shoppers. If you've been eying one, now is the time to buy.
