Apple Mac mini set for HMDI upgrade at WWDC

HD connection heading to Apple's mini desktop model

HDMI port to make Mac mini the ultimate living room unit?

As the tech world turns its eyes to Steve Jobs and the expected unveiling of the iPhone 4 at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference next Monday (7 June), the Cupertino company’s top dog is also rumoured to be readying the arrival of a new HDMI connectivity supporting Mac mini.

Numerous reports have suggested dwindling reserves of the current Mac mini with Apple failing to provide retailers with an indication of the ETA for replacement stock. In the past, this has been a telltale sign that new editions were in the pipeline with imminent arrival.

The Mac mini was widely tipped to receive HDMI connection back in October of ’09 when its last update saw it host faster processors and more internal storage but the HD connectivity failed to appear.

The speculation surrounding the exit of the Mac mini’s DVI connectivity for the arrival of a HDMI port has been further stirred following the sighting of a number of prototypes using the NVIDIA MCP89 chipsets, a perfect accompaniment to HDMI connectivity.
