Mac mini revision not expected soon?
"Word that Apple will bump its Mac mini configurations to 512MB of RAM without bumping the price has swirled for months, but sources indicate that any revision to the Mac mini is not expected soon.
While the online Apple Store has updated its estimated ship times for Mac mini models to about one week, this reportedly has more to do with the end of the quarter creeping up on Apple than any planned revision. Apple typically moves inventory from its own warehouses to distributors towards the end of the quarter, generally as a means to report lower inventory numbers on its financial statement, although the company is not allowed to reflect positive revenue from such transactions.
Inventory checks across the board for Apple warehouses show most products in lower than normal stock, although most items still are reflecting same day shipping status at the online Apple Store. In contrast, inventory checks at Apple distributors Ingram Micro and Tech Data show plentiful quantities of Apple products across the board, although sources note a curious downtick in the number of new orders for Apple hardware at Ingram Micro."
