Apple announces new high-performance Mac Mini

Share

The all-new Mac mini starts at $799 (roughly Rs. 58,800), and is up for pre-orders today in the US. The Mac mini is a little desktop sans monitor and keyboard, and is aimed at developers and the server set.

There's a lot to like about the 2018 Mac mini, including faster performance and graphics, an optional 2TB SSD, 8th-generation processors, faster memory, 10Gb Ethernet, a new thermal architecture, and the Apple T2 Security chip. It's up to five times faster than the previous model, with quad-core eighth-generation Intel processors as standard and the option to upgrade to a six-core chip if you need one. There you will find four Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB Type-A ports, HDMI, audio and Ethernet (including a 10Gbps option).

Apple held its "There's more in the making" event earlier today in NY, and it launched quite a few interesting pieces of kit for those who appreciate its design and technology.

The Mac mini 2014 kept the same compact design of the Mac minis that came before it, with a small, square-ish metal design that measures 7.7 x 7.7 x 1.4 inches (19.7 x 19.7 x 3.6cm) and weighs 2.6 pounds (1.19kg). That makes the new Mac mini the first non-pro Mac to get this feature.

Other notable features include Apple's own T2 security chip on board and can even be paired with your MacBook so the Mac mini can offload some of the rendering your notebook is doing.

Apple's MacBook Air was getting rather long in the tooth so this is a timely update to a popular SKU.

Alongside Intel UHD graphics, the new Mac mini can be configured with up to 64GB of RAM and as much as 2TB of SSD storage that's four times faster than before.

A good selection of ports is available around the back of your new Mac Mini.

The Mac mini 2018 is packed with modern hardware that makes it a brilliant mini computer, so if you've been tempted to pick up the tiny Mac, the Mac mini 2018 is definitely worth the money.
