Next week's confirmed Apple event, which is highly rumored to be the date when the firm announces the iPad Mini, will apparently unveil another Mini product.
Sources have told 9to5Mac that a new lineup of Mac Minis will be announced in two standard configurations. They'll purportedly offer different storage and processor options, with a third model reportedly running on OS X Server.
It's expected that the new Mac Minis will begin to ship immediately after the announcement on October 23.
The last update for the Mac Mini arrived in 2010, with the device receiving an unibody aluminum enclosure, with faster processors being integrated last summer. 9to5Mac suggests that, due to the current Mac Minis running off last-generation chipsets and the lack of USB 3.0, these components should be updated in the new models.
In addition to the alleged announcement of the iPad Mini and new Mac Minis, Apple is also expected to unveil a 13-inch MacBook Pro that boasts a Retina display.
