The Mac mini is a little desktop sans monitor and keyboard, and is aimed at developers and the server set.
The base model with Core i3 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of flash storage asks $799, which is a considerable price hike over the $499 sticker on the previous generation. It comes in Space Gray with 4-core and 6-core Intel 8th Generation CPUS.
Mac mini has two processor options. On the port side, there are four Thunderbolt 3 ports, HDMI, two USB-A ports and Ethernet.
Apple held its "There's more in the making" event earlier today in NY, and it launched quite a few interesting pieces of kit for those who appreciate its design and technology.
The new Mac Mini now maxes out at 64 GB at 2,666 MHz (SO-DIMMS). With the ports, the Mac mini supports up to 4K and 5K Thunderbolt displays.

The $1,099 Mac mini model sports a 3.0GHz six-core Intel Core i5 processor (Turbo Boost up to 4.1GHz), though users can configure the same machine up to a 3.2GHz 6-core Intel Core i7 (with Turbo Boost up to 4.6GHz), 8GB of 2666MHz RAM (with configuration options of 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB), 256GB of SSD storage (options of 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB). This is an update that was a long time coming, but it seems the wait was worth it.
We're still awaiting United Kingdom prices but expect the Mac Mini to be available at the same time as in the US.
Like the new MacBook Air, it launches on November 7.
We don't have any more details just yet about mid-range and high-end Mac mini 2018 configurations, but all Mac mini 2018s will come with the Apple T2 security chip, which comes with an SSD controller with on-the-fly data encryption for "industry-leading security". Lastly Apple wanted to highlight that this laptop is made from "a custom, Apple-designed aluminium alloy that enables the use of 100 percent recycled aluminium for the first time". Despite all the hardware that's packed into this enclosure, the external dimensions remain the same as the old Mini.
