Apple is said to be considering a move that will bring Mac mini production to the U.S., through manufacturing partner Foxconn, according to supply chain sources speaking to Digitimes.

The idea is nothing new, but Sonnet’s system works worth the update Mac Mini. The mounting system attaches to the rear of your monitor using the VESA mounting points, but is designed to provide full access to the Mini’s optical drive, SD card slot and all the rear ports. → Read More

Last night, as we waited to pre-order the new iPhone 4, Apple had a surprise for us: a new Mac mini. Never having owned a Mac mini, normally this wouldn’t get me excited. But this one is different. This time, Apple decided to include a HDMI port and is highlighting the fact that you can easily hook it up to your HD television. In other words, it’s like an Apple TV on steroids. And it looks like… → Read More

While everyone is distracted on the iPhone page, Apple has quietly refreshed its Mac mini line of computers. And it’s more than your standard spec bump.

The Mac Mini has its fair share of rumors and the latest is really just more of the same. Apparently there is a worldwide Mac Mini shortage, which leads some so-called pundits into thinking a new model is coming soon. But to their credit, they’re probably right.

The latest Mac mini is barely a day old and already we are getting the first look inside the updated computer. Apple kept to the original design though which still requires the use of a putty knife and a bit of patience to open her up. It would be nice if Apple adapted a similar easy swap-out design that the new notebooks sport, but whatya going to do. Inside, there isn’t that much different… → Read More
Good morning, Mac Mini. It seems most of the rumors were right and that image was indeed the real deal. → Read More
Oh, and one more thing. (see what I did there) The latest, and hopefully last, rumor of the day is stating that Apple might release new iMacs and Mac minis tomorrow. That’s right, March 3rd, 2009 which would then leave the Mac Pro and Time Machine update for the also rumored March 24th event. What makes this rumor so special is that it comes packaged with ‘official’ specs. → Read More

A pic surfaced yesterday showing what could be the next Mac Mini but somebody with way too much time examined the photo under filters only to crush our dreams. Apparently the digital artifacts don’t line up or match or something like that, which proves beyond a doubt that at least this pic is not real. Sorry. Super big pic after the jump if you must see why this isn’t the next Mac Mini. → Read More
Chances are Apple is prepping the next version of the Mac Mini. It’s about time for a refresh and this pic might be the real deal. It’s got FireWire 800, Mini DVI along with a Mini DisplayPort, five USB ports and an aluminum-ish finish; everything we would imagine that would be on the next-gen Mac Mini. Now, if we only knew when it will be released. → Read More
Everyone was expecting a Mini refresh at MacWorld, and although the 17-inch MBP is a sweet setup, the Mini has been one of Apple’s more neglected products and people thought it was time. Well, they were sort of right. The new Minis are going to be coming out a little later this year, and they’ll be sporting the NVIDIA Ion platform, which is a combination of the 9400M video solution with Intel’s… → Read More
Despite the big guy not making the coveted keynote himself, the show trudging-on with Apple making its last appearance. So what does Apple have in store for us today or tomorrow? The safe bet is on an updated dual core, dual monitor-supported Mac Mini. But could it be new unibody notebooks? How ’bout a low cost netbook, eh? Or even,*gasp*, an iPhone Nano. Poll after the jump. → Read More
Time to throw away your old Mac Minis, friends, because new ones are coming next week. TUAW has on good authority (read “some guy told them”) that the new minis will have SATA optical drives that can be replaced with hard drives and that they will look more like the MacBooks with sexier styling and black and aluminum accents. → Read More
