    From Appleinsider...

    Perhaps Apple will announce updates for Mac Mini's and Mac Pro's together?

    There's not one hint of a Mac Pro update in that snippet.

    That's pretty poor proof of update. This happens frequently and it doesn't mean the update is imminent, sometimes it takes several months before the update is announced.

    That's true and is mentioned in that article:

    Two months later.

    I could see Apple adding the mini display port to the Mini but not the HDMI port.

    OSX can now send HDCP content over the mini display port.

    There might have been if the mini's were switch to Core-i and had been delayed because of constrained output on Intel's 32nm fab lines. That would be an indicator that perhaps the 32nm Xeons have been uncorked also.

    However, since seems likely it will be a CoreDuo speed bump with a Nvidia 320M graphics bump to match the Macbook/MBP 13", there isn't a coupling.

    The delay on the Mini makes sense because Nvidia's fab vendor is probably ramping up on 320's so first enough to fit up MBP 13" , then MBP 13" + Macbook , followed by Mini's added to the mix. Maybe the MBA several weeks after that.

    This may also just be an inventory bubble.

    Too expensive. The mini will be Core2 for at least another generation.

    Very good point. We know that Nvidia has had serious yield problems in the past. Fabs have many DRC rules, some mandatory, some optional. If someone chooses to ignore the optional ones, the result is usually poor yield. Or maybe Nvidia chose not to fix some failing timing paths, once again the result is poor yield.
