A maxed-out Mac mini is kinda ridiculous

The new Mac Mini starts at just $799 and it is now available for order today.

The new Mac mini also packs Apple's T2 chip for improved security, and all the ports you need in a desktop machine, including USB-A and USB-C, HDMI, and Gigabyte Ethernet. The speed bump is largely a product of quad- and six-core chips from Intel's 8 generation family of Core processors. The graphics performance has also been boosted and the new Mac mini is 60% more powerful when it comes to graphically-intensive tasks than its predecessor.

Mac mini features an HDMI 2.0 port, two USB-A ports, an audio jack and Gigabit Ethernet as standard.

Apple announced a new Mac Mini this morning, and it's a pretty large overhaul. Apple says the machines can be ordered right away and will be in customers' hands on November 7. With the ports, the Mac mini supports up to 4K and 5K Thunderbolt displays. 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". It's also made of 100% recyclable aluminum and comes in a new cool Space Gray finish. The new Mac Mini is a bit heavier at 2.9 pounds (1.3 kg).

After deadly protests, rockets fly and Israel strikes Gaza
It has also witnessed a fresh wave of tensions since March 30, which marked the start of "The Great March of Return" protests. More than 200 Palestinians have been killed in the territory by Israeli fire since the protests began on March.

We're still awaiting United Kingdom prices but expect the Mac Mini to be available at the same time as in the US. This is an update that was a long time coming, but it seems the wait was worth it.

Alongside Intel UHD graphics, the new Mac mini can be configured with up to 64GB of RAM and as much as 2TB of SSD storage that's four times faster than before.

The Mac mini 2018 is packed with modern hardware that makes it a brilliant mini computer, so if you've been tempted to pick up the tiny Mac, the Mac mini 2018 is definitely worth the money.
