Apple Mac Mini 2018 Official: Finally a Big Refresh After Four Years

In 2014, Apple last came with a new Mac Mini. Anno 2018 is the time for a renewal, as Apple showed. The internal hardware has received a reasonable adjustment.

On Tuesday, Apple finally launched the latest version of the Apple Mac Mini (2018). This happens four years after the previous generation was launched on 16 October 2014, which also means that the minicomputer was ready for a major hardware upgrade.

The appearance is pretty little adjusted, but the internal hardware is no longer what it was. That’s a positive point because this time the computer has become a lot more powerful – with which it can actually be a competitor for the more powerful Windows desktops.

Apple Mac Mini (2018) – Quick Review

To come to the table right away. Apple’s new Mac Mini does not contain dual-core processors this time as was the custom in 2014. Instead, Apple makes room for new quad-core and even hexacore 8th generation Intel Core processors. There is also no use of ‘mobile’ parts, but it is just full desktop processors. Apple does not make any sense of the Mac Mini, so there is an optional option to configure up to 64 GB of RAM in the Mac Mini, the basic model starts at 8 GB of RAM. Between them are versions of 16 GB and 32 GB. To continue on the memory front, because in that region, Apple has upgraded, there is a choice for users to take 2 TB SSD storage in the Mac Mini. For the security of the Mac Mini, Apple’s T2 security chip is present.

No one will have to worry about too few ports on the Mac Mini – unless you need more than two USB-A ports. Furthermore, there are four Thunderbolt 3 ports on the Mac Mini, all in a USB-C form factor. This makes it possible to connect 5K monitors, although of course there is also a ‘standard’ HDMI connection if your monitor does not yet support USB-C. Finally, the Mac Mini contains a very welcome Ethernet connection, optionally it is possible to upgrade the connection to a maximum speed of 10 GB/s.

  • HDMI 2.0 port
  • Gigabit Ethernet port (upgradeable to 10Gb)

If that all sounds very good, then you have to wait until you can purchase it. In America, the mini-computer is available from 7 November for a suggested retail price of $799 dollars (approx. N290,000 naira in Nigeria), although you get the basic model for that. In the basic model you get access to an Intel Core i3, 128 GB of SSD storage and 8 GB of RAM. There is also a second model for $1,099 (approx. N399,000 naira in Nigeria), you get an upgrade to a faster Intel Core i5 and 256 GB SSD storage. However, no idea as to when it’ll be available for purchase in Nigeria.
