  • It has to be an intel Mac Mini. The intel iBook will follow but the Mac Mini is the “next big thing”.

  • Well, I’ll have to go with an Intel-based mac mini for my official, though I’d love to see some new iBooks (MacBooks, I’m sure.)  I really could care less about all things iPod.

  • A Mac Mini with an Intel processor, more focused on its media related uses.

  • The NEXT BEST THING would be an upgraded intel mac mini, as timothy says, focused on media (audio and video) mostly.

  • The new iPod will feature a camera capable of snapshots and video (tying in with address book, etc.) and bluetooth for wireless control and listening.  As a bonus, Apple will address the scratched casing complaints.

  • New mac mini, and while it’s focused on media, it will NOT be a full fledged dvr.
