Apple Might Find A Way To Get The Mac Mini 2 Up And Running This 2018
The year 2018 might be the right year where the iconic Mac Mini makes a rightful return to the main line up of Apple’s devices. The company did promise to its fans that the mini-computer is still essential and we might get to see the new and improve Mac Mini 2018 up and running before the end of the year.
Three years had passed since we got the latest refresh for the Mac Mini which makes people think that the Apple might drop the line completely. This speculation also got amplified when the last WWDC 2018 came without even mentioning specific plans not only for the Mac Mini 2018 but also for the whole Apple roster.
People are anxious to know whether it is right to abandon the thought of the new Mac Mini 2018 completely because of the lack of any significant upgrades that happened year after year. However, to all hopefuls out there, there still might be a silver lining out on the horizon.
Tim Cook, Apple’s Chief Executive Officer, expressed the possible future of the Mac Mini in an email last year as a response to a customer’s question. The fan stated that “I love the Mac mini but it’s been over three years now without an update. Are we going to see anything in the pipeline anytime soon?”
Cook responded to the email directly and mentioned that “I’m glad you love Mac mini. We love it too. Our customers have found so many creative and interesting uses for Mac mini. While it is not time to share any details, we do plan for Mac mini to be an important part of our product line going forward.”
Mac Mini 2018 Release Date
For now, there weren’t any concrete proof that directly points to the specific release date of the Mac Mini 2. However, many experts believe that it will come before the end of 2018. It is also noteworthy to point out that the previous Mac Mini was released back in October so we can assume that Apple will work somewhere near that timeline.
If the scheduled release of the new Mac Mini would come this October, that also suggests the start of the new breed Mac computers. This will be the state where we could see the new and improved Mac Mini, the rumored budget-friendly 13-inch MacBook and other Macs.
Mac Mini 2018 Pricing
Since Apple is doing a great job on keeping their mouths shut for any comments and leaked information regarding the new Mac Mini, there are also few details that will point to how much would it cost us. For now, we could only make assumptions about the price tag of the new version from the latest price we have on the market.
The lowest grade Mac Mini was priced at $499 back in 2014. The mid-level version costs $699 while the top-tier model was tagged for about $999. Many experts suggest that the new Mac Mini 2018 will get a price tag similar to their predecessor.
Cool Addition To The Mac Mini
A significant upgrade to Apple’s Mac Mini processor is a must. This is to catch up with their current competition such as Asus VivoMini and Intel NUC. Both mini-computers got a 7th and 8th generation Intel Core processors.
Another notable thing that fans love would be the Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse. It would have a great impact on its consumers if the Mac Mini 2018 will bundle up these things together instead of purchasing them separately.
