Freescale make the G4s for the mini and as the worlds largest manufacturer of embedded micros I doubt they have any shipping issues.

The only reason that Apple have a problem with IBM for G5s is that Apple only order in small ad-hoc batches and only represent about 2% of IBMs manufacturing load from a single plant, those small batches just have to wait their turn.

How is going to Intel going to help? Dell orders 10 million units and Apple order 2 thousand, who will get priority?

For the first pass? I would argue Apple gets the 2,000 immediately and Dell would get 9,998,000 immediately and 2,000 (0.2% of the overall order) a week later. This all assumes that the 2,000 could not be pulled from elsewhere such as delaying a shipment to retailers like NewEgg, which is more likely.

There are a number of reasons that Apple might be catered to even given their comparitively low volume. Intel needs a showcase designer. Intel gets a major win in the press by Apple going to them. It costs Intel very little to cater to Apple to a certain extent. They might not get parity with Dell, but very well might get parity with most any other system designer.

No idea on a new Mini though. I would be ticked since I just ordered one, but that is the way it goes sometimes.

My guess would be on a 1.67Ghz top model as the next upgrade with the 1.25Ghz staying unchanged.

There is a possibility of the HDs going to 60 & 100 as well but only if the PowerBook gets a raise to 80 & 120.

The only other possible upgrade would be the Gfx, maybe 9600 with 64Mb?

Increase in ship times rarely means updates around the corner. If they stop taking orders then that usually shows a new model coming out but increased ship times are usually just a shortage of parts for them
