These prices pretty much match towards what the Mac mini line up had offered back in 2009, and this time around I would say it was worth the wait and these Mini's look like very good performers. Design for the 2011 Mac mini remains the same, the only difference is the fact that Apple has done away with a slot loading drive on all the models.
Apple's brand new Mac mini starts at $599

Apple have also managed to update the Macbook Air line up, click here for more information.
But it is also important to note that since the introduction of the Macbook back in 2006, Apple have not decided to update it this time around, but rather discontinue it.. so another Macintosh bites the dust.
