Since Apple unveiled the latest update to the Mac Mini it’s been 1464 days. But despite the frankly outdated specifications and poor performance, the computer is still available for purchase at the official online store of the company.Most remarkably, all this time the price did not change. Does this mean that Apple decided to scrap the line Mac Mini, or all the same upgrade is expected in the near future? Let’s deal with it.Today even the top configuration Mac Mini does not always meet the requirements of users. Recall that for 73990 rubles, you can buy a model with a dual-core Intel Core i5 processor with a clock frequency of 2.8 GHz, 8 GB of RAM and Fusion Drive 1 TB. This, of course, enough for comfortable work in the operating system and perform most everyday tasks, however, more should not count.
Originally the Mac Mini was positioned as an affordable solution to work. He enjoyed great popularity as developers and ordinary users. That is the starting price of $ 500 allowed the computer to take its own niche. But at some point Apple stopped developing the model range of the Mac Mini. Should I wait for the update at the next presentation on 30 October?
Apparently, a compact computer that can actually be updated in the near future. Sure of the famous analyst Ming Chi-Kuo. It is expected that the updated Mac Mini will be focused primarily on the professional market, which suggests that the cost of the computer will be a little higher than usual. However, the Mac Mini will still be a great choice to buy because its price in any case will be significantly below the minimum configurations of the MacBook Pro or iMac.
Most likely, along with the upgrade of a hardware component, a slightly updated design of the device. According to the latest data, the Mac Mini needs to obtain Intel of last generation, a configuration with SSD and 16-32 GB RAM. The computer must also be equipped with high-speed USB C — Thunderbolt 3.
