With all the excitement surrounding the iPad mini today, Apple hasn’t forgotten about its other mini: the Mac mini ($599-$999). The diminutive tower received some respectable spec bumps today making it an even better value in the same beautiful body. Naturally, it’s packing Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 like the rest of the current Mac lineup—well, except for the Mac Pro.
The Mac mini will come in three standard models. The first packs a 2.5Ghz dual-core processor with 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive, while the second just has speed and storage bumps. There’s also the server edition with the same processor as the higher end model and dual 1TB drives. Users can choose to go up to 16GB if they’d like.
