Apple (AAPL) - Get Report CEO Tim Cook has offered some insight into one of the tech titan's most recent products, the Mac mini.

In response to an email from MacRumors' reader Krar, Cook wrote "our customers have found so many creative and interesting uses for Mac mini. While it is not time to share any details, we do plan for Mac mini to be an important part of our product line going forward."

Cook's comments follow similar ones made by Apple's marketing chief Phil Schiller, who also said the device is "an important product" in the company's pipeline.
