Surprise! Mac mini Core Solo CPUs Quietly Getting Duo'd?

Here's a report:mdash;a lone report, mind you, of a buyer's new Mac mini shipped with upgraded specs. He couldn't have been happier if a stripper jumped from the box. From SuperG's words found on

I have ordered a Mac mini Core solo with 1GB of RAM last Saturday to use it as a server, and what a surprise when I received the box!

My Mac mini has been upgraded:
- Core Duo 1.66GHz instead of Core Solo 1.5GHz
- HD 100GB instead of 60GB
- and a SuperDrive instead of a Combo!

Thanks Apple !

On the box, the specifications are those of a Mac mini Core Solo...

Who knows if this is just a mistake, or the start of another beautiful revision. As of now, there aren't any changes to the Apple store. Anyone else have a similar experience?
