    I'm thinking of getting one for my parents. They have a POS XP machine that's a constant headache. I'd rather wait a little while especially if an update is imminent.

    The macrumors buyer's guide predicts a refresh soon. Are there any events coming up where one will be revealed? Or could they just one day out of the blue announce it?

    Mini's don't get a big spotlight refresh like a lot of their products. I would think Sept-Oct'ish though.

    People have been saying that for several months.

    Buy the current model.

    i really wish they did a better job with the mini. i wouldn't mind an imac, but i hate the idea of buying a computer built into a monitor. monitors generally last me much longer than the actual computer part.

    The monitor on the imac > any monitor i've seen. the image is so sharp, clear and easy on the eyes.

    I only want a mac mini because i can hide it nicely with my ps3 and wii :o

    True in some ways. The quality of the LCD that Apple uses is much higher then you are gonna get from most LCDs other then the higher line stuff and you aren't gonna get an additional LCD the size and quality of the one on the iMac for the price you pay on the iMac vs the Mac mini.
