According to Gizmodo Apple has apparently stopped shipping new units of Mac Minis to retailers. The two major European retailers who are cited as the primary sources also note that they have both been told not to expect any future shipments — which pretty much kills the idea that this is going to lead to a refresh.
The last time the Mini was updated was Nov of last year, and while I would like to think that this all means that we’ll be getting a Mac Nano in the near future (I mean they did just FINALLY release an updated display) – but it’s far more likely that this is the end of the road for the consumer Mac that isn’t an All-in-One.
We may hear something about this today on the quarterly conference call which will be held today at 2:00 PT/5:00 ET. You can listen to it here.
I’ll be very sad to see the Mini go. It was my first Mac – and without it, this blog would not exist. Ye will be missed little fella. *sniff*
