    Thread moved - not an Apple rumor or report.

    The Mac Mini has an average refresh cycle of 381 days and we are at day 331 per the Buyers Guide, so use your judgement on whether a refresh is due or not..

    When the refresh does happen, no guesses on what it might entail..but I imagine minimally it'll be a new processor..

    misunderstood the section, thought i could ask if there had been rumor. i apologize.

    sounds like couple months and theres a possibility of a new mac mini. be nice if they give it a dedicated gpu like mbp. intell for low level stuff then dedicated when needed.

    The Apple Rumor and Reports section is to post either of them..not ask about them..

    Anyway, there's been less attention on the Macs in general, so it's harder to guess what new features will show up..

    The general wisdom has been to look at the current offering and if you need it right now, purchase it. If you can wait (never know how long) then wait and see what new features show up..

    I would suspect that whenever the Mini and the MacBook Pro lines are refreshed, they will be sporting the Haswell chipset along with the newer Intel HD 5000 GPU. The iMacs of course will continue to have discrete graphics capability. Refresh maybe by the end of this year?
