New Mac Mini is faster, more powerful and black... well. Space Gray

A new version of the Mac mini has been conspicuous by its absence for a good few years now, and many people were concerned that we might never see an update to Apple's small form factor computer. Apple has added the T2 Security Chip to the design too. It features a new "Space Grey" finish. On the back, we have a 10Gbps-capable Ethernet port, full-sized HDMI 2.0, 2x USB-A (we hope they are 3.0) and 4x Thunderbolt 3 connectors. For wireless comms 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 is built-in. And Apple let that refresh sit for a long time without an update.

The first obvious upgrade is the option for this 13-inch laptop to be equipped with a Retina (227 PPI) IPS display. It starts at $999 CAD, and for that you get a quad-core Intel Core i3 chip, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage.

Pas de survivant dans le crash d'un Boeing 737 — Indonésie
Selon les autorités locales, les opérations de recherches des restes de l'avion et des éventuels survivants ont commencé. En 2013, un appareil du même type de Lion Air s'était écrasé en mer après avoir manqué la piste d'atterrissage à Bali .


To keep data safe, Apple has made use of its T2 chip with secure enclave, which ensures that software loaded at the boot stage of the new Mini hasn't been tampered with. It can run on its 50.3Wh battery for up to 13 hours (iTunes film playback).

Apple's most affordable desktop, which is still small enough to stick anywhere, is vastly more powerful than it's ever been before. And audio jack is also available. There is no (micro) SD card slot. It weighs 1.3kg, and measures 197x197x36mm. And this time, as Apple so proudly proclaimed, it's made out of 100 percent recycled aluminum - just like the brand new MacBook Air. Apple claims that "together these advancements help to reduce the carbon footprint of the new Mac mini by almost 50%". The "budget" MacBook Air is pricier than ever with a starting cost of $1,199 United States dollars, that ultimately topping out at $2,599 USD.
