Apple Acknowledges Mac Mini Update?

The fate of the Mac Mini remains a hot topic with conflicting reports about the fate of the Mac mini. While early reports have suggested the Mini will be discontinued, others have claimed that there will be at least one more update.

Some possible hope for those waiting for a Mini update comes from an unlikely source. One concerned customer reportedly received a response from Apple after firing off a concerned email about the fate of the Mac Mini to Apple's Mac hardware engineering chief:

I got a prompt reply by phone from an Apple executive care person essentially giving me no new information but assuring me that Apple knew the mini was a popular machine and to be patient

Given Apple's statement that there are no plans for new products before the holiday season, the next opportunity for Apple to introduce a new Mac Mini is Macworld San Francisco which takes place between January 5-9th, 2009.
