Last year Apple Insider told us on multiple occasions that the Mac Mini was dead. Over and over we were told that their “insider sources” had confirmed that the little Mac was not long for this world. Each time I found the rumors frustrating and without enough details to consider in any way valid. (I ranted it about it here and here)
Well, on Friday Apple Insider posted an article about how they are “eating their words” and the Mac Mini is about to receive a refresh, and is ready to “rock on”.
So, if you believe the rumors – then Apple has given the Mac Mini a stay of execution for at least another 12 months.
Frankly, I don’t think the Mac Mini was ever in danger of going anywhere. The new refreshes, according to AI will be consistent with the current Macbook internals when the units are refreshed.
So – what do you think? Do you think the Mac Mini was on its deathbed and the original AI rumors were correct? Or do you think that they just ran with some less than credible info an announced the death of a product when everything was actually just fine?
