Mac Mini Refresh Soon?

http://www.macrumors.com/images/macrumorsthreadlogo.gif

One blog claims that bulk orders for the Mac mini are currently being denied until after Labor Day.

Quote:
I needed to order another bunch to use as Mac mini servers (and to add to my great wall of Apple boxes) but I was told by the reseller (name withdrawn so they donít get in trouble) that they canít take big orders (again), but after Labor Day theyíd be able to ship plenty of the new model.
The same blog reported a similar pattern prior to the last Mac Mini update in February. Meanwhile, Appleinsider claims to have independent confirmation of the delay in large orders of Mac Minis.

This timeframe supports earlier claims that Apple would be launching Core 2 Duo (Merom/Conroe) Macs as early in September. The new Core 2 Duo processors are drop-in replacements for existing Core Duo processors which power the Mac Mini, MacBook, iMac and MacBook Pro.

If there's a dual core base model after 4 September, I'll be very happy...

Roll on 5 September...

This article refers to the Mac Mini, not the iMac...

Is Conroe pin-compatible with the iMac, though? I didn't think it was...and I definitely think that Apple should try to get a Conroe chip in that computer (or else release a mid-sized tower).

I hope this coincides with MBP product refreshes with merom. The excitement is palpable.

I thought Yonah and Merom are basically the same cost-wise. That's why everyone thinks including merom in new systems won't raise the price of those systems. I could be wrong.

They will be - at least initially - but Intel will undoubtedly lower prices on the Yonah chips shortly, making a cheaper Yonah-based Mini feasible.

Finally some Mac Mini rumours ..... lets hope this turns out to be correct. I wonder what specs we'll see in the next update, Surley no more Core Solo?

The article mentions Core 2 Duo, but I bet they stick with Core Duo. everything else will be the same.

I'd be shocked if we saw Merom based Minis before Merom based MBP and MB.. maybe a Core Duo upgrade, to hold us over? A price drop and high speed Yonah?

OR wishful thinking from someone who doesn't want his Core Duo Mini to seem old(even though its not)

the new intel integrated graphics isn't ready, is it? So these will be merom minis with a GMA 950?

Almost shelled out Monday for a top of the liner mini. Glad I didn't get around to it. A 2 Duo in the low end and it will make a fantastic media center. Even better if they include a superdrive (unlikely ). Have to wait and see....

Maybe dual optical drives like the Mac pro. This is getting standard on Macs obviously.

The only Mac that currently has the dual optical drive is the Mac Pro. I would not think that the iMac and Mini would get a dual as well. But I will admit that stranger things have happened.
