    As an upgrade for the Mac Minis, AMD Radeon HD 6630M GPU is included if you are going for $799. I saw the tech-specs, and realized the only difference was the CPU clock (not a big deal IMO) and the GPU. I'm assuming that getting rid of the ODD provided Apple enough space to stick in a good enough GPU in their Mac Minis.
    I was wondering, IF the MBP refresh came with no ODDs, do you guys think there is a high chance that Macbook Pro 13" (at least the high-end) will get the dedicated AMD Radeon HD GPU, similar to that of Mac Mini?

    The space where the ODD was is more or less empty in the mini; I think it's more a matter of cooling in the 13"

    But what about the Mac Mini? Does it have better cooling system? Maybe they will redesign it and make the cooling better in late-2011/early-2012
