The following is just some info I felt like calculating for fun. A few have suggested the mini will go (sayonara) because it is similar to the new 2013 'mini' Mac Pro in size. I.e. why would Apple produce to small Macs. Some have also said Apple will produce a super budget version of the Pro to replace the mini. I disagree with these arguments but I though... hmmm will the size really be similar? Mac Pro 2013: 6.6" D (3.3R) by 9.9" H = 339 cubic inches Mac mini 2012: 7.7" by 7.7" by 1.4" = 83 cubic inches So the Mac Pro is not as 'mini-like' as one might expect. Clearly the Mac Pro 2013 is far smaller than the old 2010 'tower', but it is also a lot bigger than the mini. We are yet to see the Mac Pro in the flesh but it is actually more than 4 times the size of a Mac mini. Stack 4 minis on top of each other and that is roughly the size of the new Mac Pro. Interestingly, the 2013 AirPort Extreme is also even bigger in volume than the mini at 98 cubic inches. Surprising figures. The Pro is not as close as some have suggested.
