Apple updates Mac Mini - adds Thunderbolt, new Radeon graphics

In addition to Apple updating the MacBook Air in an overall refresh of the Apple Store, the company has also updated its low-end Mac Mini, giving it updated specifications, a new graphics card and Thunderbolt support.

The updated Mac Mini will feature a dual core Core i5 or Core i7 processor (or a quad-core Core i7 processor when you chose the one with the Lion Server OS) and a new graphics card from AMD – the Radeon HD 6630M. In addition, it comes with Thunderbolt support and, of course, no optical drive – you will have to use the drives on your other Mac or PC in order to access it.

It now comes in three different configurations – the 2.3GHz dual-core Core i5/500GB, 2.5GHz dual-core Core i5/500GB and the 2.0GHz quad-core Core i7/500GB. They are priced US$599,US$799 and US$999 respectively. The US$799 option is also upgradable to a 2.7GHz dual-core Core i7 processor, up to 8GB of memory and a 750GB hard drive with the addition of a 256GB solid state drive.
