New Mac Mini Headed our Way?

One product I seriously considered before I purchased my Black Macbook had to be the Mac Mini. And I still think the Mac Mini is a rather overlooked machine that’s quite powerful on its own; I love its small form factor and green output. But recently they’re becoming slim pickings according to AppleInsider. With Apple slowly cutting off the air supply to the current model, can we expect to see a Mac Mini refresh?

AppleInsider suggests that the new Mac Mini’s could have rumored HDMI ports, but I’m no so sure. Either way, I don’t expect anything more than Core 2 Duo, but boy, Core i3 (or even i5) would be nice. I also expect the 9400M to get a bump to the 320M. And those should be happening, because where else can the Mac Mini go?
