Upgraded internals keep the mini up to date
Sleek, supreme build quality, quiet, high performance
USB 3.0
Stylish, good connectivity, more than powerful enough for most tasks, cheapest Mac you can buy

It's no smaller or sleeker than the last model
Does not support PCI cards for upgrading, no builtin optical drive
Could have a better graphics system
HDMI output bug will annoy until next OS X update, still quite expensive really
