There are two interesting additions to the new Mac mini: an HDMI port and an SD card slot. The HDMI port allows you to connect the Mac mini to an HDTV and see the computer's output on a digital screen. This gives you the option to play videos or other media directly from the computer, an option that many users have been asking for in the Mac mini.

Apple says the new Mac mini "includes the fastest integrated graphics processor on the market today," with the Nvidia GeForce 320M graphics processor. It includes 48 processing cores, making it twice as fast as its predecessor, according to Apple.
