Mac Mini 2018 teaches an old design new tricks

 

After some time with the long-awaited update to Apple's mini PC, we're impressed overall -- but still have one big reservation.

With the Mac Mini 2018, Apple teaches an old design new tricks

 

It's back to being an impressive mini PC now that Apple's finally updated it.

Apple wrests excellent performance out of even the low-end Core i3 processor in the base configuration. The small system remains unobtrusive. The four USB-C/Thunderbolt ports and 10Gb Ethernet option provide for more storage with fast external data...

You're stuck with integrated graphics unless you fork over the bucks and desk space for an eGPU. Relatively high entry price once you spring for the accessories and a display. It no longer serves as a budget option despite being the most affordable Mac.

The Apple Mac Mini 2018 continues to serve as a satisfying, gets-the-job-done desktop system that delivers surprising value when you want something designed to be seen and not heard.

Compact

 

Only just set it up. Very easy to set up. I've got two monitors attached to it. Seems to be performing very well. Good iridescent if you can get 10% off.

Best Mac Mini Yet

 

Had a 2014 Mac mini and found it very disappointing as it was only dual core and performed quite slowly, This is better in almost every way, doing normal tasks is much faster and editing video, audio and pictures is so much more smoother and quicker,...
