The folks over at Digitimes are reporting that Apple’s Taiwan online store made a slight boo boo with its Mac mini pricing, listing the Mac mini with 8GB RAM at NT$19,900 ($619), which is a huge drop from the original NT$47,000 ($1,464). Such a juicy deal attracted quite a few orders, which is good news, but apparently Apple changed the orders back to the original price of NT$47,000, which obviously caused a backlash. The Consumer Foundation in Taiwan has since noted that a company should fulfill its contracts and deliver products once an order has been paid, and is urging Apple to reply to customers as soon as possible before the issue turns into lawsuits. If this really was an mistake by Apple, it looks like it might end up as a rather costly mistake, though we’ll have to keep an eye on this and see what the final result is.
