Thanks to TUAW we have some of the fine points of the much needed refresh to the Mac Mini. The first thing is that the Superdrive will be SATA, so you can either keep the drive or add a second hard drive as an option. The next detail is that the Mac Mini will look more like the Time Capsule with a lip on the side which encapsulates the optical drive and provides for cooling, which eliminates the need for the vents on the back. The new Mac Mini will also be black and aluminum, like the current lineup of Macs. It has been a long time coming for a refresh and we assume other details such as a core 2 duo, an Nvidia 9400M and the capability for more RAM. In a few weeks, we’ll all know for sure.
