Mac mini hasn’t been updated in so long any spec bump would have gone a long way. With Intel’s Coffee Lake, it goes pretty much all the way. You can get quad or 6-core intel i5 or i7 processors, which are night and day ahead of what was there before.
Mac mini looks desirable and has some punch to match.
- You can go up to 64 GB of DDR4 memory and up to 2 TB of super-fast flash storage.
- It’s also got the Apple T2 security chip for secure boot, real time encryption, Secure Enclave, and the new, consolidated controller architecture.
- Like with MacBook Air, it makes Intel better than Intel alone, and in a way no other PC maker can currently match.
Professionals love Mac mini.
