Hi all.

I "have to" buy a Mac mini sometime soon.
But there is a lot of talk about an Intel one in January:

Just wait another 3 weeks to find out.

Unless you absolutely have to buy one before the 3 weeks are up... I'd wait.

I'm waiting to get a Mini myself too.

Considering the Mac mini has had NO UPDATES since it debuted, it is likely that Apple is holding off any new releases until Macworld.

On the other hand, the Intel processors may not be shipping in any significant production numbers for anyone to launch a new product.

I'd wait no matter what, but will you buy a mini if it is a PPC?

I'm a bird. I am the 1% (of pets).

That is a good one.... so "close" to the Intel/Mac OS, that would be a bit stoopid, no?
