Is Apple going back to its roots?

Could the relaunch of the Mac Mini mean that Apple has gone a little bit back to basics, wonders Simon Brew?

That's not to say that computers don't remain important to Apple: clearly they do.

However, with Mac sales increasing, and the desktop Mac machine being one of Apple's more profitable products, it's still surprising that the company is giving across the perception that it's been neglecting its computer line-up somewhat. Perhaps the iMac and Mac Pro overhaul will reverse said perception, and perhaps Apple will reconnect with the roots of its business as a result.

Yet given that its new product lines are proving, almost without exception, extremely popular, there's no guarantee of that at all
