Apple, one of the best electronics innovators, recently released a reengineered version of its $699 entry-level desktop computer, the new Mac mini. According to Businessweek, most of the changes of this innovative gadget will be external and appearance, but Apple has made clear that they streamlined and developed some internal parts to ensure high quality and efficient technical performance than its earlier version.
Another nice modification from the previous version, the new Mac mini’s power supply is now internal, meaning that you will not see the large and distasteful brick again. However, there’s still a standard AC power cord that goes into the machine and one end and into your AC outlet.
The new Mac is equipped with 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo processor, a 320GB hard drive, and 2GB of DDR3 SDRAM, and combined with new nVidia GeForce 320M integrated graphics. This upgraded version will replace two previous models, a $599 system with geared with 2GB of DDR3 SDRAM, a 160GB hard drive, a 2.26GHz Core 2 Duo processor, and nVidia GeForce 9400M graphics; and the $799 model with 9400M graphics, 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM, a 2.53GHz Core 2 Duo, and a 320GB hard drive.
Also, the company offering a new $999 Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server loaded with 500GB hard drives. Macworld’s Dan Frakes said that the new 2.4GHz Mac mini’s Speedmark score was nearly identical to the older, 2.53GHz model, but that can be attributed almost entirely to the highly improved graphics.
