The Mac Mini is something that didn’t get a proper update in sometime, and Apple is changing that today as they have updated the Mac Mini with faster internals. This new Mac Mini was announced along with the new 27″ iMac which has a 5K Display at Apple’s Event.
Apple is shipping its new Mac mini in three standard models. There’s a 1.4GHz dual-core Intel i5 model with 4GB of memory, 500GB hard drive storage, and Intel HD Graphics 5000 for $499. A second option increases the speed of the dual core i5 processor to 2.6GHz, with 8GB of RAM, Intel Iris Graphics, and 1TB of hard drive storage all for $699. The 3rd standard configuration will ship with a 2.8GHz dual-core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, Intel Iris Graphics, and a 1GB Fusion Drive for $999.
You can also upgrade configurations to a 3.0GHz dual-core i7 processor, up to 16GB of memory, and 1TB of flash storage. Unlike the previous Mac mini, there’s no quad-core i7 model, so a dual-core i7 is the best option for processing power.
The New Mac Mini will run OS X Yosemite out of the Box.
If you want a new Mac Mini, you don’t have to wait any longer because Apple is shipping them right away. Good news for those of you who are interested.
