I have a 2009 Mac Mini that has become so slow it's almost unusable. I'd like to replace it once a new Mac Mini is presumably announced in a couple of days, but every article I read laments that it won't have "Broadwell" processors, since said processors won't be out till next year. My question is: why is this such a big deal that it keeps being mentioned? Broadwell is simply a 14 nm shrink of the 22 nm Haswell processor and while I understand they will be faster, processor advancements such as that seem to happen literally about once a year. Even if you could buy a Broadwell Mac Mini today, it seems like it would be similarly outdated in a year or so anyway and it feels like that's just how it goes with buying a new computer. Is the timing of this round of Macs really all that different than any other time that the topic of faster processors needs to keep coming up every time they're mentioned? Is the matter being overblown or are there some good reasons to wait? Also, anyone want to speculate on when the "Broadwell" Mac Mini might be release (if ever)?
