It’s not quite as glamorous as some of the other Apple news we got this morning, but the Mac Mini’s glo-up deserves a little time in the spotlight.
Apple’s smallest desktop computer got a tiny update today, nestled at the end of the company’s press release for the new MacBook Air. If you get either of the standard Mac Mini configurations, they now come packed with double the starting internal storage. The $799 model now starts with 2566GB and the $1,099 model starts with 512GB.
Sadly, for those expecting an update to the Mac Mini after it was last refreshed in 2018, Apple didn’t commit to any more changes. It’s probably not going to be better for gaming than the 2018 model was. Mashable gave that Mac Mini a favorable review, and the value only looks better now that you get double the storage no matter what you pay.
Again, this was part of a much bigger news morning for Apple. Tim Cook’s company also announced a new MacBook Air with a slightly more reasonable $999 price tag, a better processor, a new keyboard (thank God), and more storage. There’s also a new iPad Pro with a LIDAR sensor and trackpad support, in case you’d rather eschew laptops entirely and just turn your iPad into one.
If you’ve been in the market for a Mac Mini or any of those other devices, now might be the time to cash in. Props to Apple for giving us something else to talk about besides the de facto nationwide quarantine, at least for a couple of hours.
