Apple appears to be focusing on professionals this time around although really, anyone looking for a compact Mac could get some use out of the new Mac mini. In terms of storage, every Mac mini has SSDs up to 4X faster and capacities up to 2TB, which is double capacity of the previous model. It comes with Gigabit or 10 Gb Ethernet, four Thunderbolt 3 ports, HDMI, two USB-A ports, and audio out.

Apple at its October 30 event in NY, apart from unveiling the all-new MacBook Air, also launched all-new Mac mini.
