It isWhat!? lol Thats the new AirPort Extreme
The mac pro became smaller. You are picking up the wrong cues here. If you said flash storage only I might believe you. I think that is still pretty far out. It's often used as a media server. I'm not sure what percentage of its sales is derived from that. I don't mean the designated server model either, as even the base model is perfectly fine for that purpose. IO is important for such a use case. CPU power is not so much. Anyway if it's significant, they wouldn't want to constrain internal space too much.It is
But with the direction the Mac Pro and The Airport/Time Capsule, I would not be surprised if the Mini get the same treatment.
Edit: Did not see the other thread discussing this possibility already!
still has a low version cpu the best cpu while the intel i7 is the i7-3537u.I'll be nice and not put up the ****** link,
Unlike the NUC you can put i3/i5/i7 in.
I HAVE TO AGREE.Yeah, I think the Brix are a bit pricey, but then again so are the Mini solutions.
Competition will be good for all of us though.
Why should they use the i7-xxxxU version, and not one of the i7-xxxxHQ or i7-xxxxMQ processors?but it looks like it could put this in the next model
okay both the intel nuc and or the gigabyte brix would melt using the i7-xxxxHQ or I7-xxxxMQ cpus.Why should they use the i7-xxxxU version, and not one of the i7-xxxxHQ or i7-xxxxMQ processors?
No big loss. ;-)okay both the intel nuc and or the gigabyte brix would melt using the i7-xxxxHQ or I7-xxxxMQ cpus.
The 2012 Mac mini CPUs have a 45 W TDP. The 2013 Haswell versions have integrated voltage regulators, and have a 47 W TDP, AFAIK.the u chips are under 20 watts. the ones you picked are more then double that
no not at all I thought your question was about the intel nuc and or gigabyte brix.No big loss. ;-)

Either i'm blind or i do not see the problem in this configuration!? Where is the error?
Only trouble is it will make the Mini a lot more expensive.no not at all I thought your question was about the intel nuc and or gigabyte brix.
the new mini when built could have a mq or hq cpu. I would hope they do.
this would be the best of the best
47 watts vs current 45 watts could be dealt with and it has a really big gpu improvement.
The top end 2013 mini with this cpu as the BTO would be very nice.
It would also blow away the current 2012 top end mini in graphics.
This machine would be worth waiting for as the cpu has 3rd quarter release.
this a 500 dollar cpu ( I may have seen a price on anandtech) So this is a lot to hope for.
