This weekend there have been images and video of a new Mac Mini online (neither of which I can post from my iPhone…which I am blogging from at the moment).
From what little I’ve seen from it, this looks fake to me. The design is too close to the original Mini’s to be real. Apple has changed the look and feel of their products since the introduction of the Mac Mini, and I seriously doubt that Apple is going to re-design a product that does not reflect those changes.
These things surfacing online do bring up the question, though…will we ever see a new Mac Mini?
No one seems to know the answer. Even “Insider” Apple Rumor sites have mized feelings on it…declaring the device dead one month, then claiming that a new unit is coming the next.
Frankly, I’m beginning to think the answer is no…which is sad. The Mini was my entry point into the world of Apple products because it was the first one I could afford.
I think if Apple chooses to let it die, they will be giving up a gateway drug that has helped convince many users to make the leap from Windows to Mac.
What do you think? Will Apple let the Mini die, or is a new day for the device on the horizon?
