Mac Mini Lives, According to Apple's CEO Tim Cook

Tim Cook replied to an email from a loyal Apple customer to reassure Mac Mini fans that the product line isn't dead.


In an email replying to an Apple customer, the company's CEO Tim Cook made some Mac Mini fans rest at ease. "Are we going to see anything in the pipeline anytime soon?" asked the Apple fan. Tim replied with the usual Applespeak about not sharing details about future products, but did reassure Mac Mini fans that, "we do plan for Mac Mini to be an important part of our product line going forward." Check out the full exchange below.

      Cook has said this before, with no action to back it up.

      Talk is cheap, Timmy.

        Well, Phil Schiller has stated “the Mac mini remains a product in our line” which is a “water is wet” sort of statement.

        To some extent Tim’s statement is similar except that it can be interpreted as they are working on a new update just no eta yet.

        Granted when they wanted to let the world know the Mac Pro wasn’t dead they invited bloggers on site to discuss it with them. So presumably it’s less of a priority to them than that.
