The 2014 refresh of the Mac mini was not well-received by users or critics.

It was a big loss for all of the families in Leicester and Riyad was part of that for many, many years. Srivaddhanaprabha would have wanted him to play. "When I scored, I put my hands up to the sky for him".

That aside, Apple Malaysia's official website now offers two "base" configurations of the new Mac mini (customisable). 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.

It comes with the T2 security chip and has a whole suite of connections, including HDMI, two USB-A ports, Thunderbolt 3 and Ethernet.

After only 1,475 days, Apple announced a new Mac mini on Tuesday at the company's "There's More in the Making" media event. 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 features a new "Space Grey" finish.

At the moment we only know that the price of the entry-level Mac mini 2018 will be $799 / £799 (around AU$1,120). The "budget" MacBook Air is pricier than ever with a starting cost of $1,199 United States dollars, that ultimately topping out at $2,599 USD.

As far as the Mac mini goes, that price sits at a huge $4,200 Dollars, including the 2TB storage option, 64GB of RAM, six-core Intel Core i7, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet. Its chassis is made from 100 percent recycled aluminum and ships running macOS Mojave, the latest version of Apple's desktop operating system. Despite all the hardware that's packed into this enclosure, the external dimensions remain the same as the old Mini.
