Mac Mini: Apple's tiny desktop computer gets an all-new design

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] It is the desktop that launched a million podcasts. I'm talking about Apple Mac Mini. This small Mac desktop has been around for a long time and it was always the least expensive way to get into either an OS10 or later Mac OS environment, it started at $500 and people hooked it up and used it for video production, for music and audio production. They use it as a home server. It could really fit anywhere and you didn't have a screen with it. You brought your own keyboard and mouse. It was a real small, plug and play, unobtrusive Mac computer, really unlike Anything else in line. But it's also been sitting around unchanged since 2014 which was the last time I reviewed a Mac Mini. And here we are at long last 2018 with a brand new Mac Mini. Even though it looks the same I feel like they ought to call it the Mac Mini Pro because it's. Really been redesigned in order to appeal to all the pro and semi-pro users who use these for podcasts, for audio recording, for other creative jobs like that. You can even see right here Is that this new Mac mini hooked up to a music creation station. So, that gives you a good idea of how people use these devices. Now what they've done is they've upgraded the processor inside to an 8th gen. along with the other new Mac. You can get either the quad core or 6 core processors here. You can also get up to 64 gigs of RAM and up to a two terabyte solid state hard drive. And that's all very impressive stuff, and it means you probably won't have to hook up an external hard drive to store your content, at least not as much as you would with the older Mac Mini. But I think more important is, pretty much all of the other Macs have USB-C ports, and that's pretty much it. If you wanna keep some old-school ports and connections on your Mac This and the [UNKNOWN] are pretty much your only [UNKNOWN]. You have got some USBC/Thunderbolt ports on the back of this. But you also got a real life ethernet port, no [UNKNOWN] required. You've also got two USB A ports. that's the old traditional style USB. And of course, you have got an HDMI port, which is something that everyone finds very useful. But you're gonna find at Any new MacBook, MacBook Air or MacBook Pro and that means you can use this as your content creation station a lot more easily than you could one of those other models but you'd have to hook up a bunch of dongles and stuff. Now, the old Mac Mini started at 499, great entry price. As for the Macbook here, this one is a little more expensive the start price jumps up to $799.00 and that gets you a 4I3 Intel processor. And if you want to move up to a 4I5 or beyond well that obviously going to cost more, however this still is the least expensive way to get MaC OS Now in a computer in your house, it is in a desktop form not a laptop form which is different than what most people have for their Mac experience. But this guy has a ton of fans and they might even like the new space gray color. as opposed to the more traditional silver color it was before, otherwise it looks pretty much the same from the outside. I'll just add theres no fingerprint reader on it but you do get that teachers security chip so that's pretty much across the board in almost all of the new Macs. And this guy, I belive you can order it starting today and it should be available maybe by next. That is Apple's new Mac mini.
