The white MacBook Air may be a goner, but its spiritual brother the Mac Mini is still with us, and got updated by Apple today. It’s starting to feel Air-like, though–none of the new models have an optical drive.

A Few Questions About Touch-Screen iMacs
Posted by Harry McCracken on October 1, 2010 at 9:18 am
A couple of years ago, I took advantage of the Q&A session at an Apple press event to ask Steve Jobs if Apple might release touch-screen Macs. (I did so on behalf of a Technologizer community member.) Jobs told me that the company had experimented with the idea and didn’t think it made sense just yet. At the time, I noted that this answer didn’t preclude the possibility of touch-screen Macs–it was pretty much the stock response that he always gives about potential Apple products, right up until the moment that the company releases the item in question.
Now DigiTimes is reporting apparent concrete evidence of a touch Mac that might not be all that far from release: Apple is supposedly testing touch-screen panels for new iMacs.
