There haven't been many rumors of new Mac Minis, so I'd say that I don't think they will be updated soon

(btw, your sig is too big)

a friends of mine said me (yesterday) that is better to wait a new macmini, because the actual configuration is not the best solution for me and probably the new mac mini will ready in few weeks. What do you think about?

P.S. sorry for my sign, but i can't resize it in the best way

It was updated last Sept, and is the only Mac left with a CoreDuo processor. I would think that they would be updated any day now, but then it seems like Apple has put the entire Mac platform on the backburner so that they can get the AppleTV and iPhone out.

where did they here that they would be coming out in a few weeks? No rumors have circulated, so I'd say that the minis won't be updated soon.

You'll have to make a new one that is 200 x 50 pixels

It's possible that Apple will update their entire line consumer line after Santa Rosa comes out (May). Remember that they're using essentially the same motherboard across the Mac Mini/iMac/MacBook/MacBook Pro. It would make sense for them to stick with a common platform in the future too.

It means it kind of freaks me out. I mean, whatever floats your boat, but, the combination of the crucified Christ, and the Apple symbol with 'Thanks!' just, on a personal level, seems kind of odd. As if, somehow, Steve Jobs and Jesus Christ are kind of on the same level. Maybe it's a joke, and I'm not getting it, it just seems inappropriate to me. But hell, God bless the first amendment, what do I know?

Hmmm. I don't think the penny had dropped for me on this - I guess that's why there's not consumer level Mac Pro. I'd love a cheaper desktop tower with expandability.
