The new laptop also has a Touch ID fingerprint sensor and Apple's "butterfly" keyboard. We didn't hear any more details after that, but a report in Bloomberg revealed that this new product was around the corner. It will go on sale on November 7 - which is the same date the all-new MacBook Air.
The Mac Mini range has not been updated in four years. The pricing was shown on Apple Malaysia's official website soon after the company's October 2018 keynote. Tim Cook and team finally got on stage.
As rumored, the new Mac mini is distinguishable from its predecessors by its new Space Gray color. "This is many, many years in the making of actually being able to develop a process out of the materials that we already are using in our production process". Its body is made of custom, Apple-designed aluminium alloy that enables the use of 100% recycled aluminium for the first time, which has the same strength, durability and attractive finish as the aluminium in all Apple products.
While that may sound like a reasonable price for a Mac, it's worth noting that it'll actually set you back a lot more than that. Future earnings reports will be the proof, but for now, Apple is heading into one of its trickiest holiday seasons yet.
Starting at $799, Apple's new Mac mini is available to order beginning today online.
The new Mac mini is available in 3.66 GHz 4-core 8th generation Intel i3 and 3.2 GHz 6-core 8th generation Intel Core i7 configurations.
Apple delighted its fans by launching a new version of the powerful mini desktop, the Mac Mini.
The new models also include Apple's custom T2 chip.
The base models of both minis start at 8GB of 2666MHz DDR4 SO-DIMM RAM but can be configured in 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB.
Let's be frank, other than size considerations, you're not buying a Mac mini for the way it looks - it's just a plain box, after all.
This means the Mac mini supports the new Dark Mode that is available on the operating system. It's plenty fast enough for things like image and video editing, music creation, and software development. Apple's entry-level desktop previously hadn't seen a major update since 2014, but that all ends today with some key updates.
