- Forum: Future Apple Hardware
Just going by what I've read. Core M seems to be targeted at the Windows tablet/laptop hybrid market. The chips that are to power the Intel desktop NUC (which is smaller than the Mini) are supposed to come in 2015. While I don't expect Apple to mirror the NUC form factor, I think that if they see a chance to make the thing slimmer and fanless, they'll do it. Making something thinner and internally locked down for no good reason has Apple written all over it.
