It appears Apple has discontinued its US Mac mini test drive deal.

The company yesterday began offering its US customers a chance to try the company's affordable Mac for 30 days, with the option to return the product to Apple if they didn't like the machine, no questions asked.

"We're so confident you'll love your new Mac mini, we'll let you test drive it for 30 days with no risk. If you decide you don't want it, we'll take it back," Apple said.

For reasons which have not been disclosed, Apple last night withdrew the offer, removing information about the deal from its website.
