1:38 /

Phil Schiller, Apple's marketing chief, introduces the new Mac Mini, which sports USB 3.0 and comes in a 2TB version.

-Mac Mini... You knew there'd be something called Mini in this presentation, didn't you? The Mac Mini is our smallest, most affordable Mac, and if you haven't looked at one lately, it's packed with a lot of great features. Gigabit Ethernet, Firewire 800, HDMI video out, Thunderbolt, USB now upgraded to USB 3 four of them, SD card reader, and audio in and out, but the action in this product and the update is on the inside, so let's turn it over and it's very accessible. You just take the bottom cover right off and here's the inside. It's a beautiful, simple, small design. What's inside? Duo or Quad Intel Core i5 or i7 Ivy Bridge processors, Intel HD Graphics 4000, Wi-Fi, bluetooth, up to 16 gigabytes of memory, now up to a turbine hard drive or 256 gigs of flash. There are a number of configurations. It starts the 2.5-gigahertz Dual Core i5, 4-gigs of memory, and a half a turbine hard drive for just $599. There are other configurations and a lot of our customers actually like to get it as a server to run almost 10 applications for server uses. And so we have a 2.3-gigahertz Quad Core i7, 4-gigs of memory, and two 1 turbine hard drives, you know, and OS X server applications preloaded for $999 and this all starts shipping today.
