Tim Cook Calls the Mac mini “Important”

By Josh Centers
http://tidbits.com/article/17587

It has been three years since Apple last updated the Mac mini, and that revision was in many ways a downgrade from its predecessor. Despite that dubious history, Apple CEO Tim Cook told a MacRumors reader via email that Apple plans for the Mac mini to be an “important part of the company’s product lineup in the future.” Given that Apple has ignored the Mac mini for so long, we’re taking Cook’s claim with the proverbial grain of salt, but we’d love to see Apple put a new spin on the idea of a miniature Mac.

I'd love to see something considerably smaller than the current model. Something around the size of the Apple TV with a couple Thunderbolt 3 ports and Ethernet.

Interesting different POVs we have. I would like to see one twice as big with more connections, on the front, in easy to see colors, and with easy internal access.
