Rumor Time: Mac mini to get upgrade soon?

Cory Bohon

Just as many of you thought the Mac mini would die off in favor of a new class of consumer Macs, the rumor mill starts up again. AppleInsider is reporting that the Mac mini may receive an upgrade -- and fairly soon, too.

According to AppleInsider, the Mac mini may receive the following upgrades:

  • 45-nanometer Core 2 Duo mobile chips starting at 2.1Ghz
  • 800MHz front-side bus
  • Stepped-up Intel graphics processor (comparable to the one in the consumer MacBook)
AppleInsider remains speculative on a release date, but they're sure of the forthcoming upgrade. They go on to say that "Penryn-3M-based systems reportedly remained within the engineering build stage as of mid-month."
