Earlier today, a forum poster on Macrumors attached what appeared to be a photo of the next generation Mac Mini, which we reported on several weeks ago to be based on Nvidia's Ion platform--as told to us by a source close to Nvidia.
The product shot of the Mac Mini was shown to have a FireWire 800 port, which Apple has even left out of its line of MacBooks. The new Mac Mini also has significantly more USB ports and was shown to have both a mini-DVI port as well as a small DisplayPort connector. Technically speaking, DisplayPort supports a DVI displays by way of an adapter, so there's no need to really include both. The single DisplayPort connector on recent MacBook and MacBook Pros are evidence of this thinking by Apple.
Then, skeptics declared the photo as being faked and photoshoped and even going as far as to analyzing the image in detail.
Now however, a video of the Mac Mini in question has popped up, and shows the same Mac Mini unit in full view.
Are you looking forward to Apple's small computer? Or do you think that at $600 to $700, the new Mac Mini would still be too expensive? What do you think of Apple's recent prices for recent economic times?
