To get to the RAM slots you need to take the round base off the computer.

For a start, the computer has been given a space-grey finish on the outside with a body made from 100 per cent recycled aluminium. The Mac mini like its laptop cousin is also the first in its series to be made out of 100 percent recycled aluminium that gives it a smaller carbon footprint - almost 50 percent less than the previous generation.

Apple's latest mini can be configured with 4 or 6 CPU cores.

The base model with Core i3 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of flash storage asks $799, which is a considerable price hike over the $499 sticker on the previous generation.

The Mac mini's aforementioned quad- and 6-core processor options aren't exactly groundbreaking in terms of Mac devices, but the real selling point is how it's a lot more portable than other Macs. And, according to him, it's time for a "new Macbook Air".

For those unaware, The Apple T2 Security Chip is an industry-leading security technology. That adds Apple's Secure Enclave coprocessor and allows for secure booting and encrypted storage. If you happen to have a super fast network set up, then there is also a 10Gb Ethernet port on the back. And now, at long, long, last, Apple has held its "There's More in the Making" event in Brooklyn New York, it's finally here... Storage options have been significantly increased too. A model with a Core i5 chip, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD starts at $1,099 and scales up from there. Both SSD configurations can do 3.4GB/sec sequential reads. In all, the upgrades delver up to 5x processing power, and up to 60 per cent faster graphics. You could just buy a cheap monitor, but that wouldn't really make the most of the Mac mini's potential - it can, after all, output to three 4K monitors at once.

The mini also supports 802.11ac WiFi networking and Bluetooth 5.0.

The new Apple Mac Mini is essentially a complete macOS desktop system with a very small footprint of 197 x 197 x 36mm.

The new Mac Mini has been introduced with four Thunderbolt 3 ports, with double the performance as the previous Mac Mini.
