Apple Mac Mini Based on Nvidia Ion?

The next generation Apple Mac Mini computers may be based on Nvidia's Ion platform, according to Tom's Hardware.

An Nvidia partner confirmed to us that Apple was the first to receive samples of Nvidia's Ion platform, which we covered extensively during CES. In fact, Apple received prototype units long before Nvidia partners who opted to work on Ion. We're told that some partners still only have blue prints of Ion.

Because of the size of the Ion platform, we can expect the new Mac Mini to be even smaller than the current generation unit. Our source also informed us that Apple will be launching the new Mac Mini sometime in March of this year, around the same time that CeBit happens.

Tom's Hardware didn't have any confirmed information on pricing though they expect the Mac mini to come in around $500-700.

It is also possible that the same Ion platform will be used for the AppleTV.
