It's not as portable as the MacBook Pro but this is the winner because of its price and performance compared to other macs out there.
Apple’s New Mac Mini
The newest Apple Mac Mini packs more of a punch than any of the other Mac Mini’s that have existed since 2005. It is only a short while since the latest refresh as well. Despite the Apple Mac Mini being a pretty fabulous device in the past, the newest version is ‘to die for’. Let’s take a little look at the specs that this wonderful beast has waiting for you.
The latest version of the new apple mac mini is one sexy device. It stands at just an inch and a half tall, and yet, it has more power packed into it than the majority of desktop computers that we see hanging around nowadays.
The Apple Mac Mini is available in two distinct flavours. However, the main difference between the two is the amount of storage space that you have available to use, as well as the processor on offer. The entry Apple Mac Mini incorporates a 2.5GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5 with a 3MB L3 Cache with up to 500GB Storage. The more expensive device includes a slightly more powerful 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 with 6MB L3 Cache.
Apart from this, the features of the device remain the same. For the graphics you are treated to an Intel HD Graphics 4000. In terms of memory you have 4GB of 1600MHz DDR3 Memory. You can configure this to 8GB or 16GB of memory, which means that you have a lot of power underneath your belt. This is great for gaming!
The device has built in Wi-Fi and networking support. In addition to this, you can make use of an audio line in as well as a line out. The HDMI Port supports multichannel audio output, something which you don’t see too often on devices like this. To cap it off, there is a built-in speaker which eliminates the need for keeping bulky speakers on your desktop.
Despite the small size, there are a LOT of ports built into the Apple Mac Mini. This includes your standard USB3 Slots, HDMI slot and a Firewire Port. In addition to this however is a thunderbolt digital video port. Packing a lot in right? To top this off, the Apple Mac Mini also integrates its power supply, which means there is no mess when on the desk. Just plug in your power cable and you are good to go!
For the software, the New Mac Mini uses Mac OSX as the operating system, and all the favourite Apple applications come as standard on here, including the ever popular GarageBand.
To cap it off, this is the world’s most efficient desktop computer. It doesn’t waste energy at all, which means that it is the perfect device for ‘green thinkers’ out there, and of course business owners where the electricity bill is often one of the biggest costs for their company.
You can pick up a brand new Apple Mac Mini now, so why not grab simply one of the best desktop computers ever to grace this planet? You get all of the wonderful benefits that I highlighted above, as well as a computer that is going to last you many years to come.
