The Mac mini is back and better than ever

Boger said the computer starts at $799, and you can order as of today. More information regarding the Mac mini can be found here.

The starting configuration includes a 3.66 GHz 4-core i3 processor, 128GB of SD storage, and 8GB of memory at $799.

You can also string multiple Mac Minis together for even faster processing, even use them as the basis for a server centre.

Considering how much Apple loves to eliminate any sort of port that might be called "legacy", it's a bit of a surprise to look behind the new Mac Mini and find four Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB Type-A ports, an HDMI 2.0 output, and an Ethernet port with an option for 10-Gb connectivity.

The much-loved desktop computer just had some new life breathed into it at the October 30 Apple special event in Brooklyn. As for the Apple T2 Security Chip, it features an SSD controller that provides on-the-fly data encryption, and HEVC video transcoding (30 times faster than previous generations), apart from a Secure Enclave that ensures the "software loaded in the boot process is not tampered with". With all the bells and whistles, the Mac Mini comes in at a staggering $4199. Its chassis is made from 100 percent recycled aluminum and ships running macOS Mojave, the latest version of Apple's desktop operating system. Additionally, consumers can configure the Mac Mini with up to 64GB of RAM and up to 4TB of solid-state storage. Apple says the machines can be ordered right away and will be in customers' hands on November 7.
