Sorry, I'm not in the habit of starting speculation threads, as I don't see the need to since so many other posters make enough already. And I know this is especially early for one, since the mac mini finally just got its well deserved (but perhaps lackluster?) update. But does anyone here believe the Mac Mini might see yet another refresh before the end of the year? Specifically, what about all that hype about a redesign? I remember reading about Apple R&D reworking the design several (SEVERAL) months back. Prior to the last update, I remember we saw a crazy barrage of mock ups left and right. And yea, that got me stoked. I was really looking forward to seeing what Apple could do with the mini in terms of Ive's design prowess. I mean this is 2009. The entire macbook line continues to shrink in size. I just expected to see the Mini eventually follow down that same path. Anyway, don't mean to turn this into a whiny rant. I was ready to get the mini, but was honestly waiting to see if the design would change after all these years. I have no immediate need for such a machine yet, but I guess I'll continue to hope for something down the line.
