Apple held a special Keynote event in Brooklyn today to announce a series of new products, including the MacBook Air, iPad Pro, and Mac mini. Here we’re taking a look at the Mac mini, which delivers five times faster performance over its predecessor.
The new and improved Mac mini is outfitted with quad- and 6-core processors, up to 64GB of faster memory, all-flash storage, an HDMI 2.0 port, two USB-A ports, and an audio jack, all equating to the most powerful Mac mini to date. The device also features Thunderbolt 3 ports, the Apple T2 Security Chip, and a 10Gb Ethernet option, making it a faster and significantly more capable desktop.
“Mac mini is loved by customers for its ability to be used in incredibly diverse environments — from casual desktop use, to live professional performances, to multiple Mac mini computers powering through video renderings and compiling software code, to racks of thousands in giant app build farms — anywhere a small-but-mighty Mac is needed to get the job done,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “All of this power is packed into the same size enclosure as before, perfect for customers updating or creating all-new installations where Mac mini is the ideal solution.”
In addition to being five times faster and more powerful than before, the Mac mini comes in an aesthetically pleasing space gray finish, as the enclosure is made from Apple-designed aluminum alloy from 100 percent recycled aluminum.
Starting at $799, Apple’s new Mac mini is available to order beginning today online. The device is scheduled to hit stores on November 7.
