    So when might Apple's next keynote/announcement be? How far in advance to they release an announcement date?

    Typically it'd be September or October, but can be any time they feel like. Official notice for such events is usually about a week to my recollection.

    In the context of the mini, look at the 2010 redesign that had no keynote/announcement. The 2011 spec update was also quiet if I remember right, and the 2012 spec update was during the media event announcing the iPad mini (and other devices).

    (Just curious and not to hijack, but for a desktop system what's the significant benefit to Haswell vs Ivy Bridge other than graphics? Specifically, what would be the effect a typical user (not enthusiast or creative professional) would experience? I'm curious what reason Apple might have to release a Haswell mac mini with Broadwell coming up relatively soon?)

    I would say a small update, without fuzz, is the most likely option. Just like the iMacs of 2013.

    Yep... they could upgrade to Haswell this year with non-soldered RAM and still with SATA-3 HDD (no big design changes, so it's pretty easy to implement). On early-2015 it could get the Haswell-Broadwell CPU with soldered RAM, PCIe storage and an even smaller form-factor.

    They'll probably announce a new Mini only in 2015 with a major redesign. At Christmas, they could offer 2012 Minis for a better price. It happened in 2010 when I bought my Mini.

    Next major keynote / update will be Aug/Sep for iPhone 6 and iPadAir 2. I think we could see a 12 MacBook Air retina this year replacing 11 and 13. The MacBook Pros and hopefully Mini refresh will be late 2014/early 2015 and be for Broadwell. It would seem odd to me for Apple to do a Haswell refresh on the Mini. My 2 cents and all guesswork.
