Apple's new unibody Mac Mini

Apple’s Mac Mini has been updated (as rumours said it would last week) but Apple don’t seem to want to make a song and dance about it.

As is now customary on a Tuesday, the Apple Store went down for a short break and returned with a new unibody Mac Mini sportingwith a spec boost.

The mini computer starts at €799 in the Irish store and boasts a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo CPU, 2GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive for that price. There’s also an SD card reader, 802.11n WiFi, HDMI-out and a Mini DisplayPort jack and a NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics card.

All this comes in a package that is just 3.6cm tall and Apple have impressively fit the power-block in there too.

For those not pushed with having a DVD drive there remains the choice of swapping it out for a second hard drive, potentially boosting the Mini’s storage up to 1TB. There’s also a slot on the back to allow for simple RAM swapping, which is nice.

If you’re thinking of getting one and happen to be heading to the US during the Summer you might want to combine your interests and pick one up there, though. The basic model in America will set you back €570, a whopping €220 cheaper than the same thing in Ireland.
