Speculation Grows: Upcoming Mac Mini Upgrade Expected Soon?

Contrary to the belief that the Mac mini might be phased out in favor of newer consumer Mac models, recent buzz suggests otherwise.

According to a report by AppleInsider, an upgrade for the compact device could be on the horizon.

Details shared by AppleInsider indicate potential enhancements for the Mac mini, including:

  • Mobile 45-nanometer Core 2 Duo chips beginning at 2.1GHz
  • A front-side bus speed of 800MHz
  • An improved Intel graphics processor, similar to that found in the MacBook

While the exact timing of the release remains uncertain, AppleInsider suggests that these upgrades are still in the engineering phase as of the middle of the month.
