This morning the flood gates appear to have been opened on Apple before their big event, here with the Mac mini refresh getting a bit of a specifications run-down. This Mac mini update will have several different options in the Apple store online, each of them better than the last. Of course just as the Mac mini had in past iterations, there will be a standard edition and a Server edition, just what you need for your home and/or office environment - and they're big (yet still quite small, as you might imagine.)

This update has three new updates to the Mac mini lineup, each of them leaked to 9to5mac. The first of these is a 2.5GHz dual-core processor toting machine with 4GB of RAM and a lovely 500GB hard drive. The second has a a quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz with 4GB of RAM once again and a hard drive that's twice as nice at 1TB. The Server edition comes in at 2.3GHz quad-core with 4GB of RAM and a massive 2TB hard drive.

• 2.5 GHz dual-core, 4GB RAM, 500GB Hard drive
• 2.3 GHz quad-core, 4GB RAM, 1TB Hard drive
• Server: 2.3 GHz quad-core 4GB of RAM, 2TB Hard drive

The pricing on these devices has not yet been revealed. Expect each of these units to be available later today more than likely. Word has it that these Mac mini device will be working with 2x2GB stock RAM, but upgrades will be available from Apple up to 16GB - massive! Stick around for the main Apple event to find out the full run-down as Apple makes it all clear.
