Why is Apple waiting this long for a new Mac Mini to come out?

It's been:

391 days since the last update.
The average is 356 days.
The highest number of days between updates is 574.
The last update took 400 days.

We're due but not overdue yet. Likely we we'll see iMacs and minis updated soon (within 1 month).

We shall see I guess Apple is a weird company with these secrets of theirs.

Weird? I wouldn't say that, it's how they've operated for years.

Ever since Osborne went out of business announcing a new model, computer companies rarely announce new computers before they are ready.

And those companies are not Apple. Apple announces new models at events to get a lot of attention.

I'd look for a nice Kaypro! I hear you can get a great deal on those! Make sure it has at least 4K of RAM or you'll be sorry!

That's right. Apple has been doing that for a long time now.

Glad I'm not the only one that remembers the Kaypro days.
