The New Mac Mini: Features and Specifications – The new Mac Mini is a jewel in computer engineering, and with a size of just 19.7 inches of width and 3.6 in height, they are superior to any enormous desktop that we place on our desk.

Processor of the New Mac Mini

For this new gadget of the apple company, the department responsible for its construction has integrated the same Intel Core i5 to 2.3GHz or 2.5GHz and Intel Core i7 to 2.7GHz. Perhaps it not a surprise anymore that we see this type of processors, but if we take into account they are integrated into a device so small, we should take them more into consideration.

I would much prefer a 64 GB boot drive and a 750 gb secondary drive. This would certainly be a excellent little machine if only that option was enabled.
Sadly you can’t open the thing up and get at the harddrive any longer either.
