New Mac Mini to combine features of AppleTV?

So what is to become of the new mac mini? Some say it's dead, but I think it's way too purposeful to kill it. In many ways, it duplicates the functionality of the apple tv, so it may become a combination of the two: A small mac computer with HDMI (or MiniDP.) Couple that with the slimmer "brick" aluminum case design, the new video capabilities and speed of the current mackbook, and you have a pretty hellish HTPC. No Blu-ray for sure, it is counter productive in both cost and purpose. Maybe get rid of the optical drive altogether, and go with air drives and streaming content. Your thoughts?
