Mac mini (2018)

Re-engineered in no small way.

In 2018 Apple decided to take the route of the space grey design, only being produced in this colour starting at £799 for the i3 model. The i3 being a Quad core 8th Gen Intel with the i5 & i7’s having a more powerful 6 core processor. Apple also opted to bring back the ability to upgrade your own RAM in this model rather than it being soldered onto the logic-board much to everyone’s relief, they also quadrupled the the amount of RAM it is able to take at a very attractive 64GB. Additionally the first Mac mini to not have the option of a mechanical hard drive, only being sold with flash-based PCIe storage.
