CNET's guy says late July-early Aug, presumably to take advantage of Lion. Accurate?
There are dozens of threads on this. No one knows but Apple.
There aren't even dozens of Mac Mini threads that were posted in since this rumor. A few may have discussed the subject, but most haven't.
I think this rumor will prove to be solid. It comes from someone with a good track record and it makes logical sense to me. Apple wants as many people as possible using Lion, and since the upgrade involves a huge download (and many people refuse to download even small system updates), the best way to do this is to ship lots of new hardware with Lion already in place.
CNET's Brian Tong is very accurate. His source also got the releasedate for the iMac correct.
I'm just hoping that the new Mini has enough horsepower to play back Blu-ray rips WITH lossless audio without stuttering.
Mmmmmm....my dream media server.
The current mac mini handles this fine. Not sure why you'd bother letting the mini do any hard work with audio when it can pass directly to an amp, especially since you'd hear no difference in compressed vs lossless audio with the onboard audio DAC!
Because my receiver does not handle onboard lossless decoding.
It can only accept a decoded signal via analog ins. (No HDMI)
And no, the current Mini doesn't handle it at all. The best it can do is DD+ or regular compressed DTS.
A new amp would be cheaper than a new mini and probably a lot more future proof
Um, I have neither.
