    Hi,

    My folks are interested in a mac mini but I've been a little concerned about the lack of recent updates. Do any of you have an ear to the ground when it comes to any possible replacement for the mini or should I just tell them go go and get one now? I can see the buyers guide says there have been no updates for a long time, but does that mean anything? Has the mini just been put on the back burner?

    I don't think anyone knows what is going to happen with the Mac Mini. Some believe that Apple is fading it out while others believe that it is here to stay. I know this isn't much help but as far as I know, there are a lot of questions about it.
