Phil Schiller quickly ran through what might have seemed like a very minute spec bump for the Mac Mini while transitioning from talking about the 13” Retina MacBook Pro to the new super slim iMac at the special media event in San Jose, CA.
There’s not a a whole lot to shake a stick at in regards to the Mac Mini refresh. It almost seemed like the Mac mini was an afterthought. But it is a pretty powerful machine still. For the price you can’t go wrong, this was definitely a much needed update and I think anybody that purchases one will be extremely happy with it.
The updates include the following:
- Dual or Quad core i5 – i7 Ivy Bridge processors (depending on configuration)
- Intel HD Graphics 4000 chip
- Support for up to 16gb of RAM
- Up to 1TB hdd
- Bluetooh 4.0
- 1 Thunderbolt port
- 4 USB 3 ports
- HDMI out
- Firewire 800
- Gigabit Ethernet
- SDXC card reader
There are multiple configurations for the Mac mini. Here’s the info for each base configuration:
Base model | Starts at $599
Server model | Starts at $999
The new Mac mini ships today.
