After several years without an update, Apple finally announced a new version of the Mac mini, an immense upgrade that makes the little Mac machine feel like an entirely different device. The latest iteration sees Apple once again offering a state of the art machine for a fraction of the price of an iMac.
The concept of the Mac mini is straightforward – a utility-oriented compact desktop computer that one can carry around and hook up to various monitors and accessories at the user’s convenience. However, one should not underestimate the the power packed into the inconspicuous Mac mini.
The new Mac mini features a powerful 8th gen Intel chip with the options to upgrade to an even more powerful 6-core model, as well as up to 2 TB of all flash storage and 64GB of RAM. All for a price range that begins at $799.00 – and ends at approximately $4,000 if you desire the maximum upgrades.
So what users would benefit most from the Mac mini? Why would you choose a mini over a MacBook Pro or iMac? Read on to learn the top ways we expect the Mac mini to be adopted in the coming years.
