Apple unveils its most powerful Mac mini ever

Mac mini

APPLE HAS GIVEN THE MAC MINI A REFRESH with more ports and updated internals, prompting Apple to spout it's the "most powerful Mac Mini ever made". Apple claims the new speakers are fuller and more immersive and capable of wide stereo reproduction. But does it deserve your hard-earned money? The revamped Mac mini comes with up to 64GB of memory and works five times faster than its predecessor, Apple said. And this time, as Apple so proudly proclaimed, it's made out of 100 percent recycled aluminum - just like the brand new MacBook Air.

So, now the minimum configuration features a quad-core 8 Gen Intel Core processor, and that can be paired with up to 64GB of RAM, and 2TB of fast PCIe attached solid state storage.

Apple was fast to assure that these are not mobile processors although, the presenter didn't specify models. In terms of storage, every Mac mini has SSDs up to 4X faster and capacities up to 2TB, which is double capacity of the previous model. Then again, that's comparing it to a four-year-old computer.

Suspected Pittsburgh synagogue shooter CHARGED after gunning down 11 people
Authorities said Bowers was armed with an assault rifle and at least three handguns when he burst into the Tree of Life synagogue. Victims taken to area hospitals included a 61-year-old woman, a 70-year-old man, and a 55-year-old officer.

The mid-range Mac mini 2014 comes with a 2.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 (Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz) with 3MB on-chip shared L3 cache, and 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM. So easy upgradability is at hand.

Apple has managed to pack all of these improvements into a shell that's exactly the same size as the previous Mac mini's. It comes with Gigabit or 10 Gb Ethernet, four Thunderbolt 3 ports, HDMI, two USB-A ports, and audio out. Apple's T2 security chip is onboard as well, allowing improved drive encryption. It will be available in Apple retail stores and through Apple Authorized Resellers starting Wednesday, November 7. "Mac mini customers are going to flip over the new Mac mini".

The base model for the Mac mini 2018 comes with 8GB RAM, 3.6Ghz quad core Intel Core i3 processor and a 128GB SSD.
