Due to some blunder or another, it has emerged that Apple has shipped some Mac minis with better than intended specifications. The company will not as yet provide any confirmation that the reported specs of 1.5GHz processor, extra video RAM and Bluetooth 2.0 are correct. If this is true, then there are a happy bunch of Mini owners out there with better hardware in their boxes then they paid for.

The enhanced minis are shipping in the existing packaging designed for the 1.42GHz model. Presumably Apple has a surfeit of boxes to use up before it officially upgrades the mini and in this age of environmental awareness we should be glad that it is not just chucking them away.
