The new Mac Mini starts at just $799 and it is now available for order today.

On the topic of key hardware components, the new MacBook Air comes with Intel UHD Graphics 617, 8GB onboard (upgradeable to 16GB) RAM, at least 128GB of PCIe storage (configurable to 1.5TB).

The new Mac mini also packs Apple's T2 chip for improved security, and all the ports you need in a desktop machine, including USB-A and USB-C, HDMI, and Gigabyte Ethernet.

The 2018 Mac mini will be powered by a choice of quad-core and 6-core 8th-Generation Intel Core processors, with Turbo Boost clock speeds up to 4.6GHz.

The Mac Mini enters the modern era of Apple computers with its vast port offering that includes four Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports, HDMI and Ethernet along with powerful internals that make it a super appealing desktop for Apple users.

Angela Merkel 'To Step Down From Christian Democrat Party In December'
A three-way coalition with the Greens and the pro-business Free Democrats was already on the cards before bedtime Sunday night. The announcement comes after her party's vote dropped 10 percent during an election on Tuesday in the German state of Hesse.

Apple announced a new Mac Mini this morning, and it's a pretty large overhaul.

The Mac mini 2014 kept the same compact design of the Mac minis that came before it, with a small, square-ish metal design that measures 7.7 x 7.7 x 1.4 inches (19.7 x 19.7 x 3.6cm) and weighs 2.6 pounds (1.19kg). In all, the upgrades delver up to 5x processing power, and up to 60 per cent faster graphics. That makes the new Mac mini the first non-pro Mac to get this feature.

Apple describes the new Mac mini as "an absolute beast on the inside". With the ports, the Mac mini supports up to 4K and 5K Thunderbolt displays.

Hello, old friend. It's been a long time. 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.

At the moment we only know that the price of the entry-level Mac mini 2018 will be $799 / £799 (around AU$1,120). At the high end, it'll offer a 3.2GHz (4.6GHz turbo) 6-core i7 with 64GB RAM, 2TB SSD, and 10gigE.
