Apple announces new high-performance Mac Mini

Entry-level specs

The Mac Mini starts at $799, with preorders starting today and shipping coming next week.

Apple is giving the Mac Mini a major upgrade since the last upgrade that was launched back in 2014. The base model Core i3/8 GB RAM/129 GB PCIe SSD model starts at U.S. $799, which is a pretty steep price for what is now a pretty basic desktop.

The new Mac Mini also features a familiar rectangular design (with the same size enclosure, even), but in a sleek new space grey finish. 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.

The new Mac Mini also has a bevy of modern ports, including 4x Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, an HDMI 2.0 port, 2x USB 3.0 Type-A ports, 10/100/1000 Ethernet (configurable to 10 Gb), and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

In contrast to the company's other computers, the new Mac Mini features a plethora of ports, including a 10Gb Ethernet connection and four Thunderbolt 3 ports.

The Mac Mini is beloved by many creatives for its affordability, and many have been patiently awaiting an update for years.

If you are interested in buying a new MacBook Air, they are priced from $1,199 / £1,199 and will ship from 6 November.

Hello, old friend. It's been a long time. Lastly Apple wanted to highlight that this laptop is made from "a custom, Apple-designed aluminium alloy that enables the use of 100 percent recycled aluminium for the first time".

All of the new Mac mini models come with Intel UHD Graphics 630, and support up to 3 displays.

The 2018 Mac mini isn't the only the device that saw a price increase with substantial maxed out rates.

You can also configure the Mac mini 2018 to better suit your needs, adding in a 3.2GHz 6-core i7 processor (boosts up to 4.6GHz), 16GB, 32GB or 64GB RAM and up to 2TB SSD storage.
