I wish, but I doubt it. As long as they have C2D's in other machines, I think they will keep it around. I'd like to get a Mini as well. By the way, it appears our cold temps in NE Ohio may have finally gone away!With the release of the 320m Nvidia in the 13" MBP, do you think the Mac Mini will be updated soon? Also a nice little CPU bump would be good too.
Maybe along with iMac later on this year. Won't be a huge update though, probably just 2.4GHz in low-end and 2.66GHz in high-end and maybe a new GPU like 320MWith the release of the 320m Nvidia in the 13" MBP, do you think the Mac Mini will be updated soon?

Not quite. Sometimes the mini lags the bottom of the line MacBook.Mac mini (base) has always the components, what the Macbook (plastic) has. The higher end model is maybe equivalent to the base MacBook Pro.
Are you referring to the C2D @ 2.66 GHz, or in "ix"chip? The 2.66 C2D is what I have in my mini now.I can see it getting similar specs to the 13" macbook (i.e. 2.4/2.66), but really its never going to make that much of a difference.
They could remove the mini DVI port though and replace it with an HDMI. WHich would be good or bad depending on what you use the mini for
Yeah I don't see why they would put a "dedicated" HDMI port on the Mini. Why not just run have 2 MDP ports that can carry audio? But who knows, they will more than likely just swap the Mini-DVI port for HDMI w/ audio on the next update. I still think the next update will also bring us core iX processor too. Who needs integrated graphics when we are connected to a power source 100% of the time.While I'd be over the moon with HDMI, I'd be more than happy for the miniDP port to carry audio and visual like the ones do in the latest Macbook Pro updates.
I really shouldn't be spending any more money on hardware, so I'm happy to hold off till Christmas, or whenever a new model with the above is released.
They probably won't wait a whole year to update them.I doubt an imminent update for the Mini. It was updated together with the iMac in the fall, so I imagine the next update will be this coming fall.
