Alongside the launch of the 2018 editions of the iPad Pro and MacBook Air, Apple has also announced a hardware upgrade for the Mac mini, the first time in four years. The new Apple Mac mini can be configured to up to six-core Intel Core i7, 64GB RAM and 2TB of storage and will be available at a base price of $799 (approx. Rs 58,000).
As a refreshment to its predecessor, the latest Apple Mac mini will be powered by a quad-core 8th Gen Intel processor or a six-core Intel Core i7 with support for up to 64GB of RAM. The machine can be purchased with up to 2TB of flash storage and will also equip Apple’s latest T2 security chip.
For connectivity, the Mac mini packs in four USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports, an HDMI port, an Ethernet port and two USB-A ports at the back.
On the physical side, the 2018 Mac mini looks very much similar to its predecessor from 2014. However, Apple will now be offering the latest models with a Space Gray finish and has claimed that the materials used on the outside are made of 100 percent recycled aluminium.
The new Apple Mac mini will be available for purchase at $799 (approx. Rs 58,000) for the base variant which is configured with Intel Core i3, 8GB RAM, and 128GB of SSD storage.
