Do we think they will refresh the M1 Mini in the near future?

Or will Apple wait until the week after I give in & buy one on sale?

Also, from what I understand; to run two displays I have to use the HDMI
port and a TB port (to HDMI cable), is that correct?
I have two older LG IPS displays & these are the inputs available:

Since I just bought one last week (stupid) I kind of hope not, but one never knows.
I have a dock I bought from OWC for my old Mini that has an HDMI port on it for my second monitor. I like the idea of a dock for the cable nightmare that is my desk. SO many USB gizmos... time machine drive, external drives, peripherals, DVD /CD burner, and Radio Shack Scale !

Near future? Doubtful.

You are correct about running two monitors.

As soon as they update the mini, I'll give my first gen M1 mini to my son.

Running 2 screens on our M1 mini right now exactly as you state?

What kind of mac are you coming from... and whats your budget?

M1 is still a smoking chip... and odds are any "new and improved" mini is going to be double the $.

So if you were just budgeting for a base mini, it will most likely stay in the lineup, at the same cost...

exactly as you state, yep HDMI & TB to HDMI cable I guess.

Coming from 12-core cMP 5,1 48GB with Radeon RX570 8 GB.
Budget for base M1 and possibly a dock.

thxs!

Well, if you only have a base M1 budget, then you are prob stuck with the current model.

As far as I can tell, there isn't gonna be an "M2". Like I mentioned, we might get a supercharged mini, with a M1M, but double the $$ over a regular M1.

The lineup will be M1 mini (same price), M1P mini (double $), M1M mini (double + $).

Maybe in a year we will get a M2, M2P and M2M -- but that's awhile...
