http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2013...l-announces-first-4th-generation-core-cpus/2/ they havent announced mobile chips yet but it seems there might be a nice GPU leap there at least. seems like raw performance wont be any different but better GPU performance is a common request among the mini crowd. also less heat is good too, mini's can get a bit hot (especially 2010/2011 models) so those are good news too. personally, i still find the current design very nice. it would be cool if fusion drive was standard on base model.
