Apple shipping some Mac Mini with higher specifications
For some unknown reasons, Apple Computers seems to be shipping some of the Mac Mini with higher specification than mentioned on the boxes. Apple has already confirmed the reports and has not given any reasoning behind it. They recently upgraded the specification themselves so an official upgrade is not expected from the company for sometime.
Some of the machines are featuring faster processors while others have improved peripheral features. These machines are some of the cheapest products available from the company and are aimed at PC switchers wanting to try out the Mac platform. Mac Mini range from $499 to $699 depending upon what specification the user opt for.
Apple hardware spokesperson Teresa Weaver said in a statement on this issue: “Some Mac Mini systems may contain components that slightly exceed the published specifications. There are no changes to the published specifications or part numbers.” A Mac fan site reported this first when it noticed that a 1.42GHz labeled machine had a processor with 1.5GHz processor.
Looks like Apple is trying to get rid of some of the middle ranged processors stock through this method without issuing an official upgrade to get fresher stocks for perhaps higher specification Mac Mini in the near future. The company will not comment on any such expectations.
