Apple updates Mac Mini: More speed, much more expense

Apple has refreshed the specs of the little Mac Mini, jacking the base price up to £499. And no, you still don't get even a cheap keyboard

In an intuitive and innovative move to beat the recession, Apple has refreshed the specs on its little Mac Mini desktop, making it marginally more interesting, but a curious £108 more expensive.

The base configuration now offers a 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 1GB of DDR3 RAM, a 120GB hard disk, integrated Nvidia GeForce 9400M graphics and a SuperDrive. This base config will set you back £499, up from the previous base config price of £391.

Jack the specs up to a 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU with 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and you'll be asked for £849. And no, you don't get a keyboard with this one either.

The new Mac Mini is on sale now from the Apple Store.
