Only 7 months after their initial launch, there are several indicators pointing towards a refresh of the Mac Mini line. A forums poster on the Mac Bidouille forums tried to place an order for a Mac Mini recently and received the following notice:
J’ai une commande en cours sur l’Apple Store.
Est. Build On or before 11/07/2005
Replaced with new product
July 11th is a Monday, not the prime day to announce a new product, but many people there may be a dearth of announcements coming out of Apple during the week of July 4th to the 8th (mostly about iPhone stuff) and the Mini might be riding the coattails.
