“With Apple’s recent ‘State of the Mac’ omitting any mention of the Mac mini and reports surfacing over the current line’s discontinuation, there’s been some speculation that the diminutive desktop’s days may (again) be numbered. That’s unlikely the case, say insiders, who are sharing new details,” Kasper Jade reports for AppleInsider.
Jade reports, “In a report published this week titled the ‘The State of the Mac mini,’ Las Vegas-based Macminicolo, the largest Mac mini colocation firm… which operates a server farm of 400 Mac minis, notes that ‘it’s just about as familiar with the Mac mini as anyone’ and claims it ‘is certain there is another mini on the way.'”
Jade reports, “The report both attempts to dispel some common misconceptions about the mini’s sales volume, as well as outline a few features that are said to be ‘100% confirmed’ for the impending update. Specifically, it notes that the mini sells to businesses over consumers at roughly a 2 to 1 ratio.”
What’s coming? According to the report, Mac mini will receive:
• Mini DisplayPort
• Support for up to 4GB of RAM
• SATA optical drive
• Optional config, for two SATA HDDs, no optical drive
