Everybody’s probably gushing over Apple’s new 2011 MacBook Air but I think we should also take note of the new 2011 Mac Mini which was also announced together with the MBA and Mac OS X Lion. The 2011 Mac Mini packs Lion out of the box, 2.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 with 3MB on-chip shared L3 cache, 2GB of 1333MHz DDR3 memory (Upgradable), 500GB HDD, Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor with 288MB of DDR3 SDRAM, and complete I/O including ThunderBolt! How much? Php30,990. This is the most affordable brand new Mac computer that you can bring home. That only drawback is that it’s just the CPU. You’ll need your own mouse, keyboard, and monitor.
Here’s a screenshot of the back:
The new 2011 Mac Mini is a great buy for those who want to try out the Mac for the first time and have concerns with budget. It’s also a fantastic 2nd Mac machine to have at home. This should be available in different Apple resellers starting tomorrow morning but if you want you can also just order on the Apple PH Online Store.
