Actually ....The 2012 Mini was introduced last October. Were you really expecting an update after 8 months?
I would love a Mac Mini that could be used as a one-handed bludgeoning weapon.

Would this little Mac Mini be powerful enough to handle stuff like this?
The Mac mini doesn't need to do 802.11ac beam forming. They may have to make it a bit bigger ( in width and depth ) to get three wifi antennas in but no way going to need the 4-6 needed for beam forming. It is the wireless access point responsibility to "make up for" the remote weak signal. The mini can just broadcast its weak signal (given the distance/wall/whatever between the two. )
