    would you want a second line nano mini only ?

    both normal mini and nano mini?

    keep it the same just a "normal" mini?

    Okay intel has the nuc

    gigabyte has the brix

    and zotac has the zbox.

    Intel nuc =

    gigabyte brix


    zotac zbox



    you have two choices in size a mac mini size as it is now.

    next choice is the intel nuc or gigabyte brix sized pc.

    As an owner user seller modder upgrader of a lot of different gear..

    I can see apple have 2 lines a smaller pc size of the apple tv like the ones from gigabyte or intel. I can also see the same size mini with more power storage etc.

    Please cast a vote and let us know what you would like. Myself I would want both sizes. I also voted for both sizes.

    If they are lazy, it stays the same, if they are in fancy pants, the thing will shrink again (PCI SSD card, no more drive bays). They will not keep 2 lines next to eachother.

    The Atv is almost a nano mini. For me 2 nano minis and 1 mac mini would make do.
    I now have 3 mac minis for music/streaming/ tv/net/dvr/some video creation.

    I don't need 3 mac minis 2 could be like an intel nuc.

    The apple tv's don't cut it for how I would use them. A nice quad core i7 mini and 2 smaller nano minis would be very good for my uses.

    at blanka I want you to be wrong but knowing apple you are more likely correct.
