This upgrade is said to be due to be updated earlier this week but the announcement was somewhat delayed. The upgrades are on the hardware front as the low-end Mac mini will be upgraded from a 1.25GHz G4 processor to a 1.33GHz G4. The more expensive version gets a bump from 1.42GHz to 1.5GHz. Apple is also expected to improve the hard drive performance by shipping 5,400-rpm drives instead of the current generation 4,200-rpm ones. The capacities are not expected to change.
Another update is expected on the two higher end models, which would now receive a new AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth module featuring Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. The most expensive model is likely to get an 8x dual-layer model instead of the current 4x SuperDrive. Apple is not expected to hike the prices considering they are targeted at the budget segment buyers who are willing to move from the PC platform to the Mac platform.
