Core 2 Duo Mac mini?
A conspicuous Intel Core Duo graphic on the left side of Apple's Mac mini specifications page hints that the company's low end desktop system may soon receive Intel Core 2 Duo processors to replace the current Core Duo chips. The small graphic was discovered around the same time that Apple announced revised versions of its consumer-oriented MacBooks, according to AppleInsider, which now feature Intel Core 2 Duo processors. The image directs visitors to a non-existant Mac mini Core 2 Duo product page. Apple has thus far updated its iMac, MacBook Pro, and MacBook systems to Intel's faster Core 2 Duo processor, leaving only the Mac mini still making use of the older Core Duo chip. While the graphic may prove to be a simple mistake, industry watchers continue to look for signs of an updated Mac mini model.
