Before I start putting those knives in a mac mini body: how far are we away from a 2nd generation mac mini and how could it look like? Anyone remember how long it took them to upgrade the iMac?

If you recall the Rev a and Rev B imacs were essentially identical. (except to those of us who cracked them open and racked then) The rev A was introduced May 6, 1998. Both were Bondi blue and ran 233 MHZ.

The iMac 266 (which was not the Rev B) came out on January 5, 1999.

So it's pretty much safe to guess that we will get new mac mini's
before the end of the year?

Macrumors Buyer's Guide is useful as well. You can see other models but there isn't enough data yet for the mini.

so what is the general mood around here? Buy now and put in 1 gig of RAM and a 7200 and you are pretty much where the next generation will be?

Seeing as the 2 biggest complaints about the Mini are the Ram and the Video Graphics Card. I would think that both would get in a boost in the next gen Mini. The other thing that I would expect to see is a speed boost to 1.5 or 1.6 ghz. But as of late the revisions seem to be coming farther and farther apart so i wouldn't expect to see an updates of the Mini's hardware until the Jan/06 MacWorld!

Just my opinion!

I still stand by my prediction that there will not be a significant change to the Mac mini until an Intel-based one comes out. (to clarify, by "significant change" I mean something that would require a change to the main board (CPU, video/vram, etc).)

According to [url="http://engadget.com/entry/1234000717051502/"]Engadget[/url], new MacMini's are on the way within the next week or so! Prices include $499, $599, $699, which could just indicate that theyre finally rolling out that 1.58 ghtz processor (my guess).

I think the jumpers for 1.58GHz and 16.7GHz are already on the board. Isn't that what the overclockers are using?

Yep, the jumpers are on the board. It'd be cool if they upped the speeds to 1.58 and 1.67. That would make the Mini a much better contender, though the eMac is only at 1.42, so I don't know how much better they want to make the Mini than the eMac. They barely promote the eMac as it is, so if they make the Mini better, I don't see how they'd sell the thing ever.
