Tim Cook provides an update on the Mac Mini

It has been three years since Apple first released a Mac mini update, leaving several people wondering if the company was going to cut this product from the shelf. With no update at all in this long a time, one could assume that the product is dead.

Similarly, Tim Cook has a message for those who are contemplating if Apple will be giving attention to its Mac mini or not, and for those that want a portable machine to carry around that is not a notebook, we have some very good news for you. However, against the popular belief the company is not done with it, as the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, confirmed recently in reply to a fan email. He could not resist any further and emailed Tim Cook directly to inquire about the future of his favorite Apple product.

It's unclear when Apple plans to launch a new model, but MacRumours speculates that it unlikely will be until 2018 at the earliest. Cook said it was "not time to share any details", but he essentially teased that a new Mac Mini is coming down the pipeline.

The $499/£479 Mac mini allows users to use their own peripherals and display, enabling them to pay less for the privilege of running a macOS desktop. It also expects the refreshed machine to use Intel's 8th-gen quad-core Kaby Lake chips, which the firm claims will offer "double the performance" of a five-year-old machine. We love it too.

In an exchange sent to MacRumors by a long-time Mac mini user, Cook revealed plans for the Mac mini to be "an important part of our product line going forward". If so, what are your thoughts?
