Apple updated Mac mini

Apple today also updates the Mac mini. The updated Mac mini features third-generation dual-core Intel Core i5 and quad-core Intel Core i7 processors that are up to twice as fast and have integrated graphics that are up to 65 per cent faster. New Mac mini comes with standard 4GB (1600MHz) memory and upgradeable to 16GB. The new Mac mini now includes four USB 3 ports in addition to its Thunderbolt, HDMI, SDXC, Gigabit Ethernet and FireWire 800 ports.

In higher end models, Mac mini can be configured to Fusion Drive (or solid state drive). Fusion Drive is an innovative new storage option that gives customers the performance of flash storage and the capacity of a hard drive. It combines 128GB of flash with a standard 1TB or 3TB hard drive to create a single storage volume that intelligently manages files to optimise read and write performance. Fusion Drive adapts to the way you use your Mac, and automatically moves the files and apps you use most often to flash storage to enable faster performance and quicker access.
