I need one for June. Either I buy it now or wait till June for a (hopefully) faster processor, larger hard drive and other small speed improvements, including wireless N.

I think an update is definitely due, but I waited last year and it ended up being August.

So I would go for an update later in the summer.

I hope before June but I am not holding my breath. Wouldn't it be great to have the new mini have the specs of the new iMacs Twisted Evil

Way to much heat for such a small package but a guy can dream.

Yeah, it'll definitely refresh before June... of some year Wink

I'm looking forward to it... but at the moment am happy to wait, cause as soon as they come out I know I'll want one, but don't really have the spare cash for it right now. I have a 2.0GHz C2D as my desktop, but would love to repurpose that as a HTPC and grab a new Mac Mini for my desktop when/if they update. Maybe I should just start saving for an iMac for my desktop Smile

I hope it'll get refreshed some time, but I want a huge price drop as well as massively improved specs (I'm dreaming).

I reckon it'll get refreshed in June.

Rumor has it it'll be a few weeks after June, likely before the school season. If you REALLY need one right away, you can always upgrade the CPU, get the Sonnet Aria N card, and upgrade the RAM (it can handle up to 3-4GB's).

I don't think I'll buy another Mini. Not because I dislike them, but because this Mini is going to be more than sufficient for the next two years for what I do. Unless, of course, Adobe comes out with some really, really graphic intensive Photoshop or Flash - beyond what they already are. And when that happens, I'll retire this to a sole media center, and then buy a Mac Pro or something. And because I am a gamer and want to switch all my computers over to Macs, I'll probably buy a Mac Pro much sooner. The Mini is awful at running games - the vid card blows.

I don't think you have to worry about Adobe for a while, they'll be releasing a 64-bit CS4 suite for Windows, but the Mac version will remain 32-bit, and likely not more demanding than the current version.

Any idea when CS4 will be out for Windows?

It doesn't have a set date yet, but likely towards the end of the year (around Nov.)

Damn. And I'm just getting used to CS3. I stuck with Photoshop 7 for too long, it seems.
