Upgraded Mac Minis Confirmed by Apple

After initial rumor reports and subsequent user reports about speed upgraded Mac Minis quietly making their way into Apple's distribution chain, eWeek confirmed updates with Apple.

Apple is not re-labeling the Mac Minis -- even with last-minute stickers -- so buyers have no way of knowing if they are getting what's marked on the box, or if it's something better.

Clearing inventory is speculated as a possible reason for the unadvertised upgrades.

The upgraded specs include 1.33GHz and 1.5GHz processor speeds up from 1.25/1.42GHz that is currently advertised on Apple's site.
