Apple Upgrades its Mac Mini

mac-miniOne of the benefits at the Techno Station is that we and the readers here are the first to know about new developments (and rumors).

News is out and it says that Apple will launch an upgrade to its the Mac Mini, at January’s Macworld Expo (beginning Jan 5, 2009) in San Francisco, according to one of the Apple insider.

Analysts say that an upgrade to the Mac Mini was long overdue. The product hasn’t seen anything new since August 2007, and Apple computers normally have a life cycle of roughly six months. Mac Mini has been selling quite well – the Mac Mini has been among the top 5 of Amazon’s best selling desktops.

Though our source confirms there will be a new Mac Mini announced January, it’s unlikely this will be Apple’s big product launch at the show. (Last year’s major Macworld announcement was the MacBook Air; the earlier this year was the iPhone.) However, speculation about Apple’s next major Macworld launch has been surprisingly quiet, so word about the Mac Mini is the most we have so far.

Hitting some places online, users can find out that the Mac Mini will sport a silver enclosure composed of a block of aluminum. Some internal parts will be PVC-free, and combined with its size and low power requirements, Apple will tout this as the “greenest Mac ever.” For video output, the Mac Mini will use the DRM-crippled DisplayPort for connectivity, which Apple is offering to manufacturers for a no-fee license and more.
