The Mac mini is back with a much needed update

Nichole VegaOct 31, 2018

It starts at $799 in the USA, £799 in the United Kingdom, runs Mac OS Mojave from the get-go and will be available from 7 November.

The new system looks like it will address many of those concerns. A 720p FaceTime HD camera and triple microphone setup flesh out the multimedia specs.

To log in or make purchases with Apple Pay, you can now use Touch ID to authenticate your identity. Apple has also incorporated its T2 security chip into the new Mac Mini. It comes in Space Gray with 4-core and 6-core Intel 8th Generation CPUS. SSD storage can be upgraded to 1.5TB but this will drive the price up significantly. It comes with Gigabit or 10 Gb Ethernet, four Thunderbolt 3 ports, HDMI, two USB-A ports, and audio out.

The new MacBook Air will be available early next week with prices starting at £1,199. The Mac mini like its laptop cousin is also the first in its series to be made out of 100 percent recycled aluminium that gives it a smaller carbon footprint - almost 50 percent less than the previous generation.

When it comes to Apple products that have been withering on the vine near death for years, none have been as neglected as the Mac Mini.

As far as the Mac mini goes, that price sits at a huge $4,200 United States dollars, including the 2TB storage option, 64GB of RAM, six-core Intel Core i7, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet.

It is powered by Intel's 8th generation processor with up to six cores, paired with 64GB RAM and 2TB SSDs.

One display with 5120-by-2880 resolution at 60Hz connected via Thunderbolt 3 plus one display with 4096-by-2160 resolution at 60Hz connected via HDMI 2.0. "It's truly the Swiss Army knife of computers", says Brian Stucki of MacStadium, which manages almost 8,000 Mac mini systems in co-location data centers for a wide range of developers - from small startups to some of the most valuable companies in the Fortune 500. These updates are pretty major compared to what was available beforehand.
