A good selection of ports is available around the back of your new Mac Mini.

Apple announced a new Mac Mini at the Apple event on Tuesday, the biggest update the mini desktop has ever received. "People that are thinking of switching will have no more excuses", Jobs said.

To demonstrate the power of the new mini's, Apple's website includes statistics about how much faster the machines can perform tasks in popular Apple and third-party pro apps including Xcode, Logic Pro X, Final Cut Pro X, Pixelmator Pro, Adobe Photoshop CC, Autodesk Maya, and others. It's still a stripped-down Mac that offers affordable access to macOS.

But the Mac mini can be souped up, providing up to 64GB of RAM. It's probably the only Mac you need on your desk. Professionals may be tempted to pick up a maxed-out Mac mini, but doing so won't come cheap. The entry-level processor is a 4-core 8th generation i3 processor at 3.66GHz and no turbo mode. Buyers also have SSD storage options up to 2TB.

None have been named, and they said any punishment would be "handled internally". The Jaguars are in London to play the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Considering how much Apple loves to eliminate any sort of port that might be called "legacy", it's a bit of a surprise to look behind the new Mac Mini and find four Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB Type-A ports, an HDMI 2.0 output, and an Ethernet port with an option for 10-Gb connectivity. It can be configured with 10GB Ethernet. The mini desktop computer was overdue for an update as the last one was four years ago.

Despite packing in a suite of ports and more power, the 2018 Mac Mini still has the same footprint as its predecessor, which will please fans of the machine, not that we know many Mini users but, apparently, there are a fair few out there. It's plenty fast enough for things like image and video editing, music creation, and software development.

There are at least some interesting tweaks to the new Mac Mini, now in Space Gray to match the iMac Pro (and your only color option).
