      That Old Chestnut

      We are all told that the 6" average is perfectly acceptable, but we all know that bigger is definitely better and that it's a phallasy that size doesn't matter.

      Perhaps you should ask Santa for one of those intimate suction devices to realize a 12 incher.

      I think you might be right.

      But seriously, a quick glance through MacTracker shows that of all the current Apple products, the Mac Mini is the least-recently updated, with the current model being the mid-2012. I wonder if we'll be getting a Mac Pro-style mini trashcan?

    It's been way too long ...
