The 2018 Mac Mini gives you everything you expect from a Mac in an incredibly small form factor. It's packing an 8th-generation Intel Core processor, faster integrated graphics, speedy SSD Drive, Thunderbolt 3 ports and a recycled aluminium body, all housed within an unobtrusive design that will look at home in an office or living area.
How does this new model compare to previous versions?
Most of the improvement to the Mac mini are internal, so it will run more effectively and efficiently than the previous model.
- It features a more powerful processor than before, with the option of 8th Generation Intel quad-core or six-core processors depending on your needs
- SSD storage is now included on all models, replacing the Fusion drive of the previous model for faster file access
- A new thermal system provides an improved airflow within the case, and they can even be strung together for use in video editing or as a server farm
- It’s rich in connectivity options, with four Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports, two USB 3 ports and a HDMI 2.0 port
Intel's eighth generation processors provide stunning performance for anything from web browsing to video editing.The six-core i5 processor in this model is well suited to more demanding tasks.
Intel UHD Graphics
Intel's eighth generation processors work with Intel UHD 630 graphics to deliver eye popping graphics and incredible multimedia experiences, without the need for an additional graphics card.
Apple have upgraded the other internal components of the Mac mini. An SSD drive is now included as standard, for faster access to all your files.
Mac mini won't take up much room in your office. It measures 19.7cm in width and depth, and just 3.6cm in height. When we say 'mini' we really mean it. Adding to its portability, it weighs in at only 1.3kg.
Ultra fast connections
Mac mini is packed with an array of technologies to help you connect to more. It can run multiple displays at up to 5120 x 2800 resolution, with native DisplayPort output over its four USB-C ports. Thunderbolt 3 can transfer data at up to 40Gb per second, as well as charging or powering external devices. Two USB 3.0 ports will let you connect to even more devices, providing up to ten times the speed of USB 2.0, with full compatibility with USB 2.0 devices, while Gigabit Ethernet will give you the fastest, most reliable network connection possible.
When connected to an 802.11ac Wi-Fi base station, Mac mini will achieve incredible wireless speeds that are up to 3 times faster than 802.11n, as well as improved reception. The addition of Bluetooth 5.0 wireless technology means that you can connect compatible speakers, smartphones and other devices straight out of the box.
