[Marcus Moore] "I expect the form factor will change a bit- but I'm no longer expecting earth-shattering"

I guess it depends on how one defines earth shattering. Given the potential simple fix for compliance one of the reasons Apple may not want to bother is because the change in case design is significant enough to dissuade them from dealing with even minor supply chain changes.

In other words if the case were similar there'd be no big deal making a change they'd have to make anyway. If the case were significantly different there's no reason to make a change when the parts supply chain is about to change in a major way.

Even if all Apple does is add Thunderbolt and USB3 (which would be significant changes by using Xeon motherboard and GPU integration) and drop optical drive slots and maybe the 4x PCIe slots (replaced by Thunderbolt) that's going to be a very significant case design change and probably some changes in the internal cooling.
