    So I had a little look yesterday after the keynote ended to see if they had done a silent update to the Mac Mini and I got very excited for a second when I saw the word ''NEW'' over all of the models... That was however until I read the specs and noticed they were totally unchanged.

    What do you reckon that is all about? An error perhaps OR maybe they forgot to update the specs? Please let there be an update soon as I have money to burn on one!

    Yeah looks like a mistake. However, as the base Mac Mini uses the same Logic Board as the MBAs, it's likely that there's going to be a silent Mac Mini update to use the latest CPUs.

    It has said "NEW" since the Mac mini was updated last October, they just haven't removed it yet. The Retina iMac also still has the "NEW" label.

    Not until later this year, WWDC if we're lucky. Sept (with new iPods) if they make us wait...

    Not convinced, I'm not sure why they'd still manufacture 2 different Logic Boards. I reckon there'll be a silent update within the next month to update it with the MBAs

    While they use the same processors and what not, the boards themselves are actually quite different. They are not the SAME boards....

    There is a lot of engineering to go from #1 to #2.... If it were that simple, they would have updated the Mini's in 2013 instead of waiting until 2014 to drop the "same" logic board into them.

    Ah, no worries at all. I appreciate you correcting me - and I'll remember that for future. Thank you for your help! :) :eek:
