Mac Mini Update Goes Live


20121023-135004.jpgIf new 13-inch MacBook Pros with Retina displays and iPad Minis aren’t your forte, Apple managed to give Mac Mini owners something to talk about too.

The late 2012 Mac Mini refresh will include three new models.

  • Base: 2.5 GHz dual-core processor, 4 GB of RAM and 500 GB hard drive
  • Mid-tier: 2.3 GHz quad-core processor, 4 GB of RAM and 1 TB hard drive
  • Server: 2.3 GHz quad-core processor, 4 GB of RAM and 2 TB hard drive (2x 1 TB configuration)

RAM is low in our opinion, regardless of the user’s needs. Thankfully the RAM is easily upgradable. You can go the Apple route (not recommended – overpriced) or DIY from one of many online and physical retailers.

Ports include 4x USB 3.0, SD card reader and HDMI out. Bluetooth 4.0 is also included.

For Mac Mini enthusiasts, today’s upgrades sweeten the deal and make them even more worthy as a (relatively) cheap entry point to Mac and OS X.
