Feb 28th Products: Intel Mac mini and iPod Hi-Fi?

More rumors of the February 28th Apple event are leaking out.

As previously reported the Intel Mac mini and an iPod Boombox/Hi-Fi companion product are expected to be released at the Feb 28th event.

Appleinsider now claims that the Mac mini has already been sent to manufacturing partners to ramp up for release. Meanwhile, the Intel iBook is not expected to be released at next week's event.

The most detailed rumors of the Intel Mac mini were described in November:

- Front Row 2.0
- "TiVo-Killer" DVR application
- Built-In iPod Dock
- Possible move to 3.5" hard drive

Meanwhile, the iPod Boombox/Hi-Fi which was originally described in December and confirmed yesterday by ThinkSecret is expected to be priced in at over $300. The exact functionality of the new iPod remains a mystery, but hints of "unique capabilities" and "strikingly different" have been used to describe the unit.

Both "iPod Boombox" and "iPod Hi-Fi" were recently trademarked by Apple in the Hong Kong Trademark office.
