Besides the new MacBook Air Line which was just launched, Apple has also upgraded the Mac mini line. The new Mac minis have retained their aluminum unibody design but pack faster processors and more hard drive space. In addition, the new LED Cinema Display – now called the ‘Apple Thunderbolt Display’ – also released tonight will have an optional VESA mount.
The new Mac minis:
- The base model will include a 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5 processor with 2GB of RAM, and 500 GB of hard drive storage space
- The more expensive model will include a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5 processor (Configurable to 2.7GHz) with 4GB of RAM, and 500 GB of hard drive space.
- Finally, the new Mac mini line will also include a new server model with a 2.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and two 500GB hard drives of storage. This new server model includes Lion Server already pre-loaded.
