The business models of Dell and Apple are completely different for the intersection of their products that this is relevant for:
Dell operates on very high volumes and low margins.
Apple operates on moderate volumes and high margins.
As a component of the Max/OSX platform the Dell mini makes no sense for Apple to operate as a business, they can't make enough margin.
From a branding perspective, the Dell is cheap. Not the hallmark of Apple engineering and product value. They said it, and that's true.
There isn't enough profit for Apple in this business, and the product isn't spiffy enough either.
*insert Acer, et. al. for Dell, same story.
