Since it first debuted, the Apple Mac Mini has sported the same look year in and year out. Thankfully though, that no longer will be the case in 2010 as Apple has finally decided to update the Mini to match its brethren in the Apple family of computers.
Measuring a mere 1.4-inches in height, the 2010 Mac Mini is the slimmest Mini to date, and unlike its predecessors, now also boasts of a removable bottom to provide users easy access to the memory slot for upgrade purposes. The power supply is now built in, and it comes with an HDMI port in addition to the standard Mini DisplayPort on all Mac systems. Just like the 2010 Macbook Pro family, the Mac Mini comes equipped with the new NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics chip and an SD card slot to complement its four USB 2.0 ports and FireWire 800 port.
The base model comes with 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo processor, but users can opt to upgrade this to a 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo chip. It’s now available at the Philippine Apple Online store for Php38,990.00, and will most likely hit the local market in July or September.
