Now that Air has got a nice new update, it’s time for the second major neglect in the Mac line. As Tim Cook noted on the stage, the company received another “small” addition to the line. The pint-size desktop gets it “biggest updated, according to the company.”
The footprint is the same known as a series that has defined the line since the beginning but now with the space gray color found on the rest of the line.
However, the biggest changes are on the inside. The new device has the latest generation of six core processors, up to 64GB of RAM and up to 2TB of solid state storage. At the back of the device you will find four Thunderbolt 3, an HDMI and USB-A port. Like the new Air, the updated Mini is made of 1
00 percent recycled aluminum.
Matching the theme of the event, the company positions the product against creative professionals. Apple’s hopes to be blurred between consumer and professional lines by setting up its lower devices. That said, the Mini is still priced as an entry level device. The low-end version has 8GB of RAM and starts at 799 USD. Pre-orders for the reduced desktop start today, and it begins to deliver on November 7th.
