Since it is using a desktop CPU is it not soldered in? If so definitely buy the base version.
It is not using a desktop processor its using an intel B series chip which is a mobile chip like all past Mini's. I don't know of any Mac mini that has has the CPU upgradable post purchase and yes its soldered in place.
They said in the keynote it wasn’t a mobile processor.
Do we know which actual processor it is yet?
It is at least possible. I bought a first gen intel single core mini off ebay and installed a dual core MB processor into the same socket. But it may not be still possible.
no one knows for sure what they did.
I am guessing it is desktop and replaceable.
go to dell and look at its optiplex 7060 micro
i think the new mini is a riff of this.
in many ways better then the dell
It's soldered in. Very clearly shown in the image on the website.
I saw the few speculations of which processor pointed to Intel's pages showing socketed CPU. I guess we wait for the teardowns.
Soldered in and NOT replaceable.
Get the one you think you'll be happy with when you "buy-in".
Get the one you think you'll be happy with FOUR YEARS FROM NOW (get it now, but plan four years down the line)
