Apple announced its resdesigned Mac Mini on Tuesday, promising twice the graphics performance in a compact aluminum enclosure.
The new Mac Mini includes a HDMI port and an SD card slot. The new compact aluminum enclosure is only 7.7" square and 1.4" thin. Apple claims it's the world's most energy efficient desktop. “With twice the graphics performance, HDMI support and industry-leading energy efficiency, customers are going to love the new Mac mini", said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.
Apple has reduced the overall system volume by 20% which has allowed it to include the new HDMI port, SD card slot and NVIDIA GeForce 320M GPU. The new Mac Mini comes with a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 320GB HDD and 2GB RAM as standard for $699 (£649).
