Mac Surprise

It seems that Apple has no plans on labeling their Mac mini boxes with the new speeds, faster DVD drive or more graphic card memory availible on the mini's. It's more of buy and find out what you got when you get home.

According to ZDnet who is quoting CNET news.com (with no link to the CNET news web page) " that it has started offering machines that in some cases have improved processing powers and other enhancements. However, Apple is not labeling the new machines in any special way, so buyers have no way of knowing if they are getting the more capable models".

saying "Some Mac Mini systems may contain components that slightly exceed the published specifications," Apple said in a statement. "There are no changes to the published specifications or part numbers."

My question to Apple or anybody out there is- Is this legal?
Can Apple sell a product (in what seems like deception) not labeling the product correctly?

Of coarse this is assuming the article is true. If anybody brought a mac mini with the higher specs with the same old label on the box please post here.

**Update**According to MacCentral Apple Computer today confirmed that some Mac minis are shipping with higher than advertised specifications. “Some Mac mini systems may contain components that slightly exceed the published specifications,” said Apple in a statement provided to MacCentral. “There are no changes to the published specifications or part numbers.”
