Mac Mini Updates?
Wednesday September 21, 2005 8:22 PM EST

Think Secret is reporting that Apple will be quietly updating the Mac mini in the next week or so. The Mac mini just received minor upgrades in July. According to Think Secret, the low-end Mac mini will be upgraded from a 1.25GHz G4 processor to a 1.33GHz G4, while the high-end will see an equally modest bump from 1.42GHz to 1.5GHz. Hard drive capacities are expected to remain the same but will be upgraded from 4,200-rpm drives to 5,400-rpm. The mid-range and high-end models will receive a new AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth module featuring Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. Lastly, the high-end model will see its 4x SuperDrive upgraded to an 8x dual-layer model.

Pricing will remain the same at $499, $599, and $699.

Update: Apple has apparently begun shipping Mac minis with 1.5GHz G4 processors, ATI Radeon 9200 graphics cards with 64MB VRAM and 8X Dual Layer SuperDrives. We have had several users contact us with the new specs. It appears that some customers who recently ordered the top-of-the-line 1.42GHz model are receiving the updated machines. One of these lucky users has posted his system profile in our forums.

A page on Apple's website, Mac OS: Versions, builds included with computers (since 1998), indicates that a new version of the Mac mini will be be introduced in September of 2005, with build 8D40 of Mac OS X 10.4.2. The page was created on June 18th 2005 and was modified on September 26th.
