Apple has managed to pack all of these improvements into a shell that's exactly the same size as the previous Mac mini's. The base model Core i3/8 GB RAM/129 GB PCIe SSD model starts at U.S. $799, which is a pretty steep price for what is now a pretty basic desktop.

The device comes with four to six cores, both with all 8th-gen Intel CPUs. The $799 base model sports a 3.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i3 processor, though users can configure the same machine up to a 3.2GHz 6-core Intel Core i7 (with Turbo Boost up to 4.6GHz), 8GB of 2666MHz RAM (with configuration options of 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB), 128GB of SSD storage (options of 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB).

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.

Apple has announced an all-new Mac Mini, with a new Space Gray colourway and beefier processors. It will go on sale on November 7 - which is the same date the all-new MacBook Air. It's the biggest upgrade ever to the Mac Mini. Its graphical capabilities are rated as 60 per cent faster than the previous generation. The 2018 Mac Mini also has 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0. This is an update that was a long time coming, but it seems the wait was worth it. The TX line of security chips was originally introduced in 2016 MacBook Pros, while the T2 Security Chips was introduced in last year's iMac Pro, and then added to Apple's 2018 MacBook Pro lineup. Its chassis is made from 100 percent recycled aluminum and ships running macOS Mojave, the latest version of Apple's desktop operating system.

Apple describes the new Mac mini as "an absolute beast on the inside". Despite all the hardware that's packed into this enclosure, the external dimensions remain the same as the old Mini.
