    I don't think it will be that small, according to what has been rumored, it's getting a macbook esque update, unibody frame with new nvidia graphics AND $100 cheaper

    Well, the size does not matter that much as long as it does not get significantly bigger than it is now. Two things that do matter in my opinion are:

    - Display output: Our monitors are still mostly VGA, so this needs to work reasonably with a cheap adapter

    - Power: Ideally it would be Apple TV-like, i.e. one voltage, significantly lower than 12V, but anything civilized will do (standard voltage such as 12V, 18.5V etc with no digital communication between the computer and the power brick)

    More than likely it's getting a displayport out, apple loves them some displayport at the moment.

    There is a displayport->VGA adapter, so if it is just that, we should be fine - provided the DisplayConfig X still works with the new graphic adapter so we can use our typical 800x480 LCDs.
