 The meaning of the resources argument, from my point of view at least, is not financial. Obviously there is ample cash to spend. The point is that Apple does not want to spend for such reasons. They proved it years ago, as I mentioned before, in the case of the pair OS X - iOS development. They had already tons of new cash each year in order to expand their developer teams, if they wanted to. Instead, they chose to move developers around according to the needs. They...
Off topic: I heard the same thing about some Balkan countries as well. Much cheaper than EU zone, but also (much?) more risky from a sanitary point of view. What about Hungary? Is it considered good enough by EU standards in this sector?
 They won't let that happen. See the example of Greece.
 Apple does not want to choke to death.
 I hope so. We don't know though how popular the mini is for Apple to proceed to a radical redesign. I would love to see a machine with more easily accessible internals, taking clues from the new Mac Pro.
 Exactly. I remember the software counterpart of this. Some years ago when iOS was under heavy development and Mac OS X was clearly neglected, there was word that the reason behind it was the reassignment of the company's developers. Over time, and once iOS reached enough maturity, some balance was established and now we are back at regular OS X updates. Obviously I am only highlighting the limited resources effect. What will really happen with the mini is up to Apple.
Should not this thread be in Future Apple Hardware?
 The "Future Apple Hardware" section of the forum is traditionally the place to discuss rumors. The difference is that in the past there were some credible sources, the rumors were actual leaks and the discussions were much more interesting. Remember Think Secret? They had inside info that was often picked up here igniting densely crowded long discussions. Those days are over after Apple shutting down TS and plugging leaking holes, but the focus of this section has not...
 If Apple is really going to increase the resolution, then I believe that a larger display (> 30") for the iMac is quite probable.
Yes, there is indeed this issue. Not sure what kind of GPU would be needed to push so many pixels at acceptable frame rates. The iMac has mobile GPU, which would be perhaps sufficient for general use, but what about games? Apple, and any other company for that matter,  likes to show increased performance when updating a computer system. On the other hand, many photo/video professionals use iMacs when they cannot afford or justify the expense for a Mac Pro. So, would not it...
