Okay, so the rumors are still piling up.  With all the talk over at Mac Rumors, it is basically inevitable that there will be some kind of update to the Mac Mini in the near future.  In other words, don’t be dumb and go buy one now unless it’s a life or death purchase.  Don’t be like me.  You see, I heard all the rumors back near the end of September about an update to the MacBooks, but did I listen?  Nope.  I went and got one anyways because I was impatient.  Now, I’ve got a great computer, but I’ve also got inferior graphics, slower ram, and a plastic shell versus a new aluminum one. A day doesn’t go by when I don’t wish that I had waited.

All this rumor chatter might be just that, rumors, but take it from me and wait.

Mac Mini Update?

October 30, 2008

New Mini Mockup

Again, the rumor mills are churning, and they’re spitting out more talk about an ‘inevitable’ update to the ‘often neglected’ Mac Mini.  After reading everything they’ve been going on about, and considering how long it has been since a Mac Mini update (Aug ’07), I think that we’re probably pretty close to a revision.  What I’d really like to see for the Mac Mini is the new Nvidia graphics from the macbook, support for more ram, and maybe even a little bit of a size trimming.  You guys might say “but the mini is so tiny already!”, bah.  Smaller can always be better, especially if you’ve got limited space.  I like the Mini, but I’d like it MUCH more with a price neutral update. I say price neutral and not price reduced. This is because after anticipating a price drop in the macbook and actually seeing an increase, I’m not getting my hopes too high.
