Apple has just unveiled a new Mac mini at its October media event. In a space grey finish, every Mac mini now starts with quad-core CPU configurations. Apple will also offer six-core models for the first time. The new Mac mini can include up to 64 GB RAM, and all models feature solid state drives.

The Mac mini starts at $799, with various build-to-order upgrade options. Orders start today, with first deliveries from November 7.

On the back side, the Mac mini includes an array of ports: gigabit Ethernet, four Thunderbolt 3 ports, HDMI port, and USB-A. You can also configure it with 10 Gigabit Ethernet like the iMac Pro.

The new Mini also features the Apple T2 chip for security. Apple has redesigned the internals for better cooling. Apple is using recycled aluminium for the enclosure and 60% recycled plastics.

The most specced-out Mac mini can feature 64 GB RAM, 4.6GHz 6-core Core i7 CPUs, a 2 TB SDD and 10 Gigabit ethernet.

Fans of the Mac Mini have had to wait for a long time for this update. Before today, the last update to the product was in 2014. With this revision, Apple has dramatically updated the internal components, although the exterior has mostly stayed the same aside from the new space gray finish.
