New Mac Mini - wow!

I had gotten skeptical that the Mini would ever see an update, but Apple just announced a very impressive one. The event is still in progress so no specs yet on their site, but the new Mini is supposed to have

up to 6 core 8th generation CPU (base model 4-core)
user-upgradeable RAM up to 64gb
up to 2tb internal SSD
4 thunderbolt 3 ports
2 USB A ports
HDMI
10gb ethernet option

The most interesting thing was that "They can be strung together, using multiple Mac Minis for video editing or in a server farm."

Glad to see that Apple finally has introduced a Mini that's faster than my 2012 quad Mini server.

[edit] The new Mini is now listed on Apple's site. Now the complaining about the price can begin! ;-)

Re: New Mac Mini - wow!

Intriguing box to get, if one doesn't want to go the MacBook Pro or iMac route and can't afford or justify upcoming "modular" Mac Pro.

I like the idea of adding a eGPU to the Mac mini since certain applications like Final Cut Pro X and Resolve Studio will take advantage the video card to render.

I'm guessing, the Mac Mini is a hint of what the modular Mac Pro may turn out to be.
