Apple will possibly be making a new Mac mini

Am I the only one who didn't know that Mac minis were still used often enough to warrant a new device? I think it's sort of ironic that it was first made to be an affordable Mac product but now it's going to be tailored to professionals - I have no doubt that will lead them to raise the price.

I can see how an app developer would find it useful. For the average person like myself, it seems like it does things I could do my using AirPlay on my AppleTV. Maybe I'm wrong though.

Do any of you use a Mac mini?
