Leaked Video of The New Mac Mini?


 The other day we were blessed with what we thought was a possible look at the new Mac Mini.  The design had not changed much, but the ports did with the addition of a mini Display Port.  We were not sure it was the real thing, but this video shows the same Mac Mini with the same ports.  The design is sadly, unchanged, but at least it looks like an update is nearly upon us.

More Details On The New Mac Mini


  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.

New iMacs, Mac Mini November 10th, New Mac Pros at MacWorld Rumor


UPDATE:  “Our holiday line-up is set,” Apple spokesman Bill Evans told Macworld


We have some new rumors surrounding Apple and what they intend to do in the near future.  Dennis Sellers of Macsimum News has said that November 10th is the date of the iMac refresh of which is just expected a bump in specs and display power.  The other interesting refresh comes in the way of a new Mac Mini.  We have heard there would be a refresh, then it was put in the trash bin and now it comes back refreshed on the same date as the iMac.  The other tidbit is about a new Mac Pro coming at this years MacWorld Expo.  The Mac Pro is up on specs right now, but lacks the most current hardware and the new "Display Port" for the new cinema display line which makes this a very plausable rumor.

Apple Releases 2 New Mac Switcher Ads, Bashes Windows


  Apple recently released two new Mac switcher ads and this time bashes Vista for their advertising campaign in 1 ad and the second makes fun of them not referring to Vista as an OS, but refers to it just as Windows.  You have to give it to these guys in their persistant attack on Vista as it seems the ads are paying off.  Microsoft needs to come out with a counter ad to Apple, which makes them look good and not come off as copying what Apple has already done.  Microsoft should just incorporate their ads from their CES keynotes that they use internally and actually gain some ground.
