With all the big iPad Pro 2018, MacBook Air 2018 and Mac mini 2018 news announced today, you would be forgiven for overlooking another impressive Apple announcement - a new and improved Apple Pencil. With capacities up to 2TB, the SSDs on Mac mini is up to four times faster, so working with large files and opening apps are quicker than ever.

The Mac Mini enters the modern era of Apple computers with its vast port offering that includes four Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports, HDMI and Ethernet along with powerful internals that make it a super appealing desktop for Apple users.

According to Apple, the Mac mini was designed using new thermal architectures, so it won't overheat despite being a tiny metal box stuffed with processing power. CEO Tim Cook revealed it's reach an active install base of 100 million Mac users, 51 percent of which are new buyers.

It starts at $799 in the USA, £799 in the United Kingdom, runs Mac OS Mojave from the get-go and will be available from 7 November. It's still $400 less than the MacBook Air and $300 less than the iMac, but it's not quite as easy of a decision to buy. Users can choose up to 64GB of RAM, clocked up to 2666MHz.

Boger said the computer starts at $799, and you can order as of today.

Nurse Niels Högel goes on trial in Germany over 100 patient deaths
Prosecutors said the 41-year-old's motive was to impress colleagues by trying to resuscitate the same patients he had attacked. The death toll may be even higher than now assumed, because some victims - ages between 34 and 96 - were cremated.

The Mac Mini has Intel's 8th generation processors - in four- and six-core i7, i5, and i3 flavors - and 60 percent faster graphics. Like the new MacBook Air, it comes with the Apple T2 Security Chip, which instead of enabling Touch ID here, provides on-the-fly data encryption amongst other features. Along with the new paint job, which is Space Grey, the Mac mini also has a new price tag.

Otherwise the new Mac mini looks the same from the outside.

The new Mac Mini succeeds its predecessor by nearly 4 years. Altogether these advancements help to reduce the carbon footprint of the new Mac mini by almost 50%. It starts at $799, fully $200 more than the previous Mac mini and if you add all the processor, memory, storage, and ethernet options, can jump past $4000.

You can go up to 64 GB of DDR4 memory and up to 2 TB of super-fast flash storage.
