Next gen Mac mini video
In response to skeptics of the recent Mac mini image leak, MacRumors member 'monthy' has provided a video of the yet-unannounced device. The clip shows the same features as the image, notably a new port layout. The updated device offers a Mini DVI and Mini Displayport connection instead of the full-size DVI connector, while the FireWire 400 port has been upgraded to a FireWire 800 jack. A fifth USB port has also been added.
The overall form factor and external design elements closely resemble the current model, with an aluminum shell and white back. Reports suggest that the internal components have been revamped, transitioning to a NVIDIA platform. The graphics processor would likely see a switch to the GeForce 9400M instead of the existing Intel GMA 950.
Rumors suggest the product could be launched as early as next month, although a confirmed date remains unknown.
