Apple finally announces an overhauled Mac mini

Entry-level specs

If you happen to be one of those people, there's more good news as pre-orders for the new Mac Mini are live now and the machine will go on sale 7 November for a starting price of £799.

Looking the same as the existing model but in black, the Mac Mini is the easy way to get Mac functionality without needing a built-in desktop model, such as the iMac. The base model Core i3/8 GB RAM/129 GB PCIe SSD model starts at United States $799, which is a pretty steep price for what is now a pretty basic desktop. It comes with quad- and 6-core 8th-generation Intel Core processors with Turbo Boost Speeds up to 4.6GHz and Intel UHD graphics. The processor's paired with up to 64GB of RAM (32GB comes standard) at 2666MHz and up to 2TB of SSD storage - double the capacity of previous Mac Minis. On the back, we have a 10Gbps-capable Ethernet port, full-sized HDMI 2.0, 2x USB-A (we hope they are 3.0) and 4x Thunderbolt 3 connectors.

Apple announced a new Mac Mini this morning, and it's a pretty large overhaul. Apple's T2 security chip is onboard as well, allowing improved drive encryption.

At the moment we only know that the price of the entry-level Mac mini 2018 will be $799 / £799 (around AU$1,120).

Every single Mac Mini enclosure will be made of 100 percent recycled aluminum. The new Mac Mini is a bit heavier at 2.9 pounds (1.3 kg). With the ports, the Mac mini supports up to 4K and 5K Thunderbolt displays. This is an update that was a long time coming, but it seems the wait was worth it.

Under the hood of the rather compact chassis, Apple is offering the Mac Mini with the latest four and six-core eighth-gen Intel Core processors, offering more performance and integrated GPU power than the old 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.
