There hasn't been a new mac mini for quite a while now, so the rumours could be true that there's a new version coming soon. If this is true I'm checking it out as a possible htpc replacement. While my current Silverstone alu box works fine, it does take up a lot of space and still makes too much noise for the living room (even after putting in new fans and dampening materials).
Let's hope Steve has something nice to offer us in Januari at the Macworld Expo.
Here's a link to the article about it at Wired.

I heard the same rumor (from another source). We're going to try to get someone to cover Macworld this year--hopefully we can get the news as soon as it breaks.
Welcome to HH BTW.

Welcome to the forums. My brother has one of the original ones. Underpowered, but great for what he needs. He uses it to record and edit music for his band. Looking at the rumored specs they look quite capable thought. Shame the cheaper one wont have the Nvidia chipset.
I have one of the current core 2 duo models. its Ok as a spare machine or if you just want something to mess with OS X on. But its underequipped to run the Apple i-suite or anything from Adobe. Damn 4200rpm SATA drive is dog slow as a primary HD.
I was thinking they might go with a low end Quad Core a Q8200 like Dell uses in their $600-700 Studio model. yeah its a crippled Quad-Core chip but at least you can say its a quad core right?
Steve,i like this guy,hope Mac have better products.
Been a while, but I finally went with a AsRock Ion 330 as my HTPC. Running Windows 7 with Boxee, and it's running fast. Everything I throw at it plays silky smooth. Got a USB IR receiver + remote off E-bay for 7 euros including shipping, and it works right after plugging it in. So for about 250 euros I'm all set.
