  • The new Mac mini gets splayed open

    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… Read More

  • iMac and Mac mini updates coming tomorrow?

    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

  • The five USB port Mac Mini might be and probably is a fake

    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… Read More

    Interesting bit of speculation surrounding the Mac Mini. Tom’s Hardware, one of the oldest, bestest hardware-focused sites out there, says that the upcoming Mac Mini speed bump will feature Nvidia’s new Ion platform. Among other things, that can lead to an even smaller Mac Mini. Read More

  • New Mac Minis to use NVIDIA's Ion platform

    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… Read More

  • Poll: What's Apple announcing at Macworld 2009

    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.

  • New iMacs to include hotter components, new cooling?

    The new line of iMacs due early this coming year are likely to sport some pretty serious upgrades, most notably (we reckon) a quad-core processor and new NVIDIA chipsets. Of course, this more powerful hardware will be producing more heat, and if Apple wants to keep the iMac and Mini lines trim and svelte, they may be putting a bit of work into a new cooling system.

    We just learned that Steve Jobs is not going to give his annual address at Macworld where he generally announces new Apple product. So…now what?

Also, how about a new iPhone? What are all the… Read More

  • Apple says in a soft, soothing voice: Don't worry, Mac Mini lovers, all is well

    A concerned blog-reader emailed Apple’s hardware engineering chief Bob Mansfield about the Mac Mini, worried that the diminutive computer would be phased out by a cold, heartless Apple. The reply came loud and clear through Apple’s executive care saying there is no plans in the near term for an update but that the Mac Mini is not dead but just resting and updates should come soon.

  • Mac Mini to get NVIDIA mobo?

  • Oh noes! No more Mac Mini?


    Pic from . It’s a colocation service running Minis in a rack.
    Rumor has it that the Mac Mini will not be shipped to retailers as of today with no word as to when the diminutive little box will ever ship again. The Mini, as you recall, was supposed to be the cheapest Mac ever and at about $599 on the low end it actually was. Unfortunately, the Mini sold very poorly and there is talk… Read More
