but I still think they should have made an effort to leave the price unchanged.

Apple is generally pretty good about this, so there might be a good reason.

Now I am sure that the new Intel Mac minis will sell well regardless (probably better than its PPC-based uncle), but it would have sold even more at $499. And more Mac minis = bigger market share

This is the classic balancing act: market share grab versus margins. There are a lot of factors that go into finding the middle ground. Sometimes the cheaper entry price pans out, but you have to keep quarter-to-quarter profit in mind, as that affects Wall Street perceptions which effects everything.

Just wanted to say that I really appreciate your site design and I am a big fan of your Cocoa tutorials

Many thanks.
