Apple Apple has quietly updated its Macintosh product line today. The iMac line is now all Merom (Core 2 Duo) based, and a new 24" model has been introduced. The iMac line now starts at USD 999 or EUR 999.01 (the cent does it) for the 17" model. The Mac Mini line receives a processor upgrade, but prices remain the same.

So, can you drop a Core 2 into a mini? Various article say they're pin-compatible, but I haven't seen anything that says it has been done...

Apple just did it in the iMac upgrade by the look of things. The 17" and 20" are identical but for the processor, which suggests they probably just dropped a different processor into the socket.
