Mac mini box photo leak
A new leaked image appears to show the retail packaging for the next-generation Mac mini. The photo, posted on OneMoreThing.nl, features a Mac mini with five USB connectors, a Mini DisplayPort and a FireWire 800 port. The design elements match a previous image leak and video, while a NVIDIA logo adds evidence to reports claiming the upcoming device will use the GeForce 9400M graphics and controller chipset.
Apple is expected to launch NVIDIA-based Mac minis and iMacs sometime in the near future. The source of the packaging photo claims that the 24-inch iMac will feature a 1TB hard drive and memory capacities up to 8GB.
The presence of a retail box could indicate a March release, although the exact date still remains unknown. [via AppleInsider]
