Apple CEO wrote that the Mac mini will be an important part of the company's product lineup in the future, although he did not share any details. It has been three years since the Mac Mini was updated, leaving it using significatively older hardware than similarly-priced Windows products.

If you aren't a Mac user and aren't familiar with the Mac mini, it's a small form factor machine that comes with no accessories at all.

Despite Apple's hints, it is unlikely that a new Mac Mini model will be launched until 2018 at the earliest, according to MacRumours.

Some speculated the device had been dropped from the Apple roster, but a cryptic statement sent in an email may quash these rumours.

Cook's response was: "I'm glad you love Mac mini".

The Mac mini is Apple's lowest cost desktop computer, starting at just $499, but users have to provide their own monitor and peripherals such as mouse and keyboard.

The Mac Mini packs 4th generation Intel processors alongside 4 GB of RAM and Intel HD 5000 integrated graphics. Cook's response doesn't suggest that there's a new one in the pipeline, but what it does reveal is that the Mac mini will probably not get the axe anytime soon. We love it too.

So Tim Cook's latest assertion backs this up, and hopefully it won't be long before we hear some further news on the latest spin of the Mac mini. But he clarifies that "Apple has plans for the Mac Mini "should be" an important part " of the offer of the brand to apple in the future.

In April, Apple announced it will release new versions of its iMac desktop computers this year, as well as revealing it is "completely rethinking" the Mac Pro, its most powerful computer.

Speaking at the time, Schiller said: 'The Mac mini is an important product in our lineup.
