Along with the announcement of the fourth generation iPhone, Apple has also revamped the fantastic Mac Mini. In an effort to maintain a consistent look and feel across the entire Apple product line, the new Mac Mini has received a substantial stylistic upgrade and is now also an aluminium unibody-type construction:
Although the hardware has been upgraded to within a hair of the Macbook Pro line, as well as major changes to the chassis, the really exciting news is the integration of the power supply circuitry into the device, allowing Apple to finally dispense with the ugly power block of the last generation of Mac Minis. Another interesting feature included by Apple includes an easy to open bottom panel:
This feature allows easy access to the user-upgradeable RAM modules, although Apple still recommends going to an Apple store for any hard drive upgrades.
All in all, the new Mac Mini looks great and I look forward to seeing some performance reviews soon.
