Apple has finally released an updated Mac Mini that sports the second generation Core i series processor along with thunderbolt port. The model available at most stores come with Core i5 2.3GHz processor, Intel HD Graphics, 4GB RAM which can be easily replaced by removing its bottom panel. Here is the unboxing of this 2011 model.
There are two 2GB RAM modules being used in it making total of 4GB RAM. The OS, as expected is Mac OS X Lion.
Ports include, Ethernet, HDMI, Thunderbolt port, USB 2.0 × 4, FireWire 800, SDXC card slot, headphone and microphone jack. The new Mini measures just 1.22 kg and measures 197 × 197 × 36mm.
While the new Mac Mini has more power than its predecessor, it does not comes with an optical drive. But since I have not used the DVD drive from past 5 years, I would not complain about it. via
