Apple finally announces an overhauled Mac mini

NEW YORK—For the first time in four years, Apple has announced a new Mac mini, and it’s a departure from its predecessor. The new Space Grey boasts five times the performance of its predecessor, with either 4- or 6-core processors and up to 64GB of RAM, making it a much more capable system for demanding users.

The 2014 refresh of the Mac mini was not well-received by users or critics. It eliminated the four-core CPU available in the previous model and was harder to upgrade. And Apple let that refresh sit for a long time without an update. Consumers and analysts began to speculate that the product line’s days were numbered, but Apple CEO Tim Cook responded to an email from a customer to say, “We do plan for Mac mini to be an important part of our product line going forward” about a year ago. We didn’t hear any more details after that, but a report in Bloomberg revealed that this new product was around the corner.
