It also comes in gorgeous space gray. Priced at $499, the teeny-tiny machine became the cheapest Mac ever made.

Apple says the all-new Mac mini offers five times the performance as previous generations, up to 6-core processors, apart from more memory capacity (up to 64GB of RAM), and all-flash storage. "People that are thinking of switching will have no more excuses", Jobs said. With all the bells and whistles, the Mac Mini comes in at a staggering $4199. The numbers are impressive, but it's worth keeping in mind how old the prior Mac minis had become when evaluating the speed increases. It's probably the only Mac you need on your desk. What followed was a video titled "The Arrival" depicting a Mac mini descending like a UFO from the nighttime sky into the desert, which turned out to be a nighttime wallpaper from Mojave, Apple's latest macOS update. Now the Mac Mini will start at $799 for the 3.6 GHz quad-core model and $1,099 for the 3.2 GHz 6-core model, which can reach 4.6 GHz with turbo boost.

The company's Tom Boger called the new computer the biggest update to the Mac Mini lineup to date. Buyers also have SSD storage options up to 2TB. It can be configured with 10GB Ethernet.

Mac mini has all the ports you expect from a desktop. It's plenty fast enough for things like image and video editing, music creation, and software development.
