The Mac mini is back, baby. 

The much-loved desktop computer just had some new life breathed into it at the Oct. 30 Apple special event in Brooklyn. It’s been four years since the company released an update, and one was starting to feel a little overdue. Well, you need wait no more. 

Tim Cook introduced the update to the “small, but mighty” computer, but senior director of Mac hardware product marketing Tom Boger gave us the highlights. Specifically, all flash storage, up to 64 GB memory, 5 times faster performance when compared to the previous mini, 4 or 6 cores, a host of ports (including an ethernet port), and a Space Gray finish. 

But Boger wasn’t done. He called it the “biggest update yet.”

Entry-level specs.

The exterior is 100 percent recycled aluminum, and that entry-level model comes with 8 GB memory, 3.6 GHz quad-core i3, and 128 GB SSD. 

Boger said the computer starts at $799, and you can order as of today. It will be available next week.
