A maxed-out Mac mini is kinda ridiculous

Mac mini

Still, for the mini to remain a viable alternative long term, Apple needs to update it more often than once every four years.

We're also extremely happy that Apple went with SO-DIMM memory, which should make it easy to upgrade this machine's memory. The new model will be available on November 7 and can be ordered today.

The new MacBook Air will be available early next week with prices starting at £1,199. No India availability or pricing has yet been detailed.

That aside, Apple Malaysia's official website now offers two "base" configurations of the new Mac mini (customisable).

The new system looks like it will address many of those concerns. SSD storage can be upgraded to 1.5TB but this will drive the price up significantly. Apple has also baked in its T2 Security Chip which enables on-the-fly data encryption and ensures that software loaded during the boot process hasn't been compromised.

The new Mac Mini, which has found favour among creative and coder types, now comes in the rather fetching Space Grey model, and offers loads of connectivity options in the form of an Ethernet port, HDMI, two USB-A ports, and four USB-C ports sporting Thunderbolt 3. The new mini can power two or three 4K and 5K displays depending on their configuration. The processor's paired with up to 64GB of RAM (32GB comes standard) at 2666MHz and up to 2TB of SSD storage - double the capacity of previous Mac Minis. The new Mac mini comes with quad-core and 6-core Intel 8th generation processor which is accompanied by an equally powerful Intel UHD GPU.

The graphics performance has also been boosted and the new Mac mini is 60% more powerful when it comes to graphically-intensive tasks than its predecessor. For wireless comms 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 is built-in.

The size and weight of this laptop is a key selling point and this latest model is 30.41 x 21.24 x 1.56cm, and weighs just 1.25kg.
