Mac mini 2018 vs Mac mini 2014

Apple refers to its new Mac mini as "part racehorse".

Tim Cook comes back onstage and says: "there's another small but mighty Mac our users have been waiting for", and it's apparent the Mac Mini is getting an update.

The base model for the Mac mini 2018 comes with 8GB RAM, 3.6Ghz quad core Intel Core i3 processor and a 128GB SSD.

That aside, Apple Malaysia's official website now offers two "base" configurations of the new Mac mini (customisable). It comes with quad- and 6-core 8th-generation Intel Core processors with Turbo Boost Speeds up to 4.6GHz and Intel UHD graphics. In terms of storage, every Mac mini has SSDs up to 4X faster and capacities up to 2TB, which is double capacity of the previous model.

Mac Mini 2018 boosts 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports, an HDMI 2.0 port, two USB-A ports, an audio jack, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet.

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. It will go on sale on November 7 - which is the same date the all-new MacBook Air. The existing model was so long in the tooth as to be considered borderline irrelevant, but the upgraded machine might make up for it by packing quite the punch inside its slim dimensions.

As far as the Mac mini goes, that price sits at a huge $4,200 Dollars, including the 2TB storage option, 64GB of RAM, six-core Intel Core i7, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet. It will use only SSD storage up to 2TB, and uses a T2 chip for security as well. Along with the new paint job, which is Space Grey, the Mac mini also has a new price tag. The upgraded device comes with up to 60% faster graphics. Despite all the hardware that's packed into this enclosure, the external dimensions remain the same as the old Mini.
