Now Apple has bestowed upon us a whole new collection of goodies for us to lust after and if we’re really lucky, place orders for. They say that time stands still for no man, and that’s doubly true if you’re working at 1 Infinite Loop.

One small yet significant product announcement, that, for some, might have even gone unnoticed, was an update to the Mac mini.

It’s the period of time when educated speculation, wild conjecture and insane fantasy starts to get thrown around pertaining to what we could actually see being introduced during Apple’s event tomorrow. The invitation headline of “It’s been way too long” doesn’t really give much away, but needless to say that hasn’t stopped even the deepest, darkest corners of the Internet from chipping in with its two cents worth. As we try to separate the “potentials” from the “no ways” we once again take guidance from KGI Securities’ analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a proven track record of predicting what lies ahead and believes that tomorrow’s event could be heavily iMac centric.
