Apple stealthily revised the Mac mini. Get the full story here, but the part I think is the most interesting is that they designed in a removable panel on the bottom to make it easy to replace the RAM yourself. It shows a rare bit of flexibility from Apple when it comes to their hardware.
As for the rest of the device:
- No more power brick? Nice!
- Tons of ports (including HDMI).
- SD card slot
- No Blu-Ray? Rats. ”Bag of hurt” or no, that would have been nice.
- The price bump from the previous version of the Mac mini seems a bit steep.
The original Mac mini was the first computer I ever bought from Apple.
