TUAW is reporting that the Mac Mini may not be as dead at is seems like it is. The new rumor is that the Mac Mini may be getting a refresh that ditches the Intel integrated motherboard design.
I certainly hope it’s true. The Mac Mini is what made it possible (financially) for me to get into the Mac in the first place. With the economic downturn that we’re currently in, it seems like a pretty poor time to drop the mini from production.
Hopefully this rumor ends up being true, and we get a refreshed version of the littlest Mac. The last few refreshes of the product have been released quietly, so don’t expect much of a change here, unless Apple decides to re-design the thing.
