Leo's Tip of the Week

Product of the week

Mac mini

The Mac mini has always been a less expensive desktop alternative to Apple's all-in-one iMac. It's small form factor is free from the confines of monitors and peripherals, meaning it can be used in a wide variety of situations. It also means that it can pack a lot more power for less money, and Apple recently updated it to give it pro-level specs. It now features a quad- and 6-core eighth-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors with up to 64 GB of memory and up to 2Tb of all-flash storage. The i7 processor is 3.2 GHz with turbo boost up to 4.6 Ghz.

The Mac mini has 4 ports for Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C), two ports for USB 3, HDMI 2.0, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and 10Gb Ethernet.

Mac mini starts at $799 for a 3.6 GHz quad-core Intel i3 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of SSD storage. It comes only in Space Gray.
