14 ] Previously, with the selection of component parts on the older machines, the machines were seen as slightly slow than traditional desktops. Apple unveiled a new Mac miniserver and computer changes on October 22, 2009. It has a second disk instead of an optic one.
Mac min was launched with a new Mac on June 15, 2010. It was slimmer, with a solid aluminium body engineered to be easy to open for accessing memory, and built-in, updated hard ware, such as an HDMI connector and Nvidia GeForce 320M video cards. Updated as previously released on July 20, 2011, the built-in CD/DVD drives of all releases fell and featured a Thunderbolt connector, an Intel Core e5 CPU and either Intel HD Graphics 3000 embedded graphics or AMD Radeon HD 6630M embedded graphic.
This server version has been updated to a quad-core Intel core IP7 CPU. QCDs are also used in the late 2012 Mac desktops with quad-core 7 processors. 17 ] After two long years, it received a long-awaited boost in October 2014 that brought Haswell GPUs, better graphs, a $100 lower basic pricing, while the metallic shell stayed almost unchanged.
Mac min, upgraded on June 15, 2010, has been completely redesigned, thinner than its predecessors with only 36 mm (1.4 in.) in height, but broader with 196 mm (7.7 in.) per side. Launched on July 20, 2011, the newer version has the same size, but is slightly smaller at 1.2 kg (2.7 pounds), probably because it doesn't have an integrated CD/DVD player.
Your Mac min is currently built to open with a round lid on the bottom of your computer. Earlier Mac mini releases were much harder to open. Several Mac minis used a spatula or pie slicer to open the cases of older Mac minis to get inside to install cheap third-party storage up-grades.
19 ] The Apple Service Source Guide for Mac minis provides a detailed description of this process, which includes an Apple part number for a "modified spatula. Opening the case doesn't really invalidate the Mac min i-guarantee, everything that breaks when the case is open is not protected. Further enhancements included harddisk upgrade, CPU clocking (G4 only), and upgrade of cordless network (for older models) to 802.11n.
23 ] The 2009 version can have its SuperDrive substituted by a second SATA disk. 24 ] The 2011 optic expansion allows room for a second built-in HDD or SDK, which can be ordered as a BTO from Apple or as an upgraded from third parties.
When Apple changed to the Intel Core Solo and Duo lines, they first used a socket-based Mac mini CPU to replace the processors. Changed to a non-socketed 2009 version that did not allow a simple upgrading. The June 2010 revisions allow the case to be easily opened to allow the addition of additional memory (except for the end of 2014 models). use.
Recent versions have an HDMI connector for simple connectivity to advanced TVs and home cinema sets. Mac mini does not come with an internal TV Tuner and cannot be updated to fit an internal TV Tuner; access to the TV will require the use of outside equipment such as Elgato's EyeTV USB adaptor or SiliconDust's HDHomeRun network TV Tuner, which encodes and manages TV shows from a wired or wireless TV set.
July 2011 version is missing integrated CD/DVD and OS Lion no longer support Front Row remotes. Mac minis before 2009 had a camcorder port that was compliant with the DVI, HDMI (video only), SVGA, S-Video, and composit videos with the appropriate adaptor. Unlike Apple TV, Mac min is backward compliant with TVs that only have composit or S-Video in.
Since Mac minis was redesigned in July 2011, the computer has had an Intel HD3000 GPU with an option of a Radeon GPU and Thunderbolt, which makes high-speed playback much faster and more effective. An additional HDMI connector makes it easy to connect the Mini-US to high-definition TVs and home cinema IVs.
Due to the similarly small shape ratio, HDMI connector, IR radio transceiver and web browsing capabilities, some people see the Mac Mini as an alternate to Apple TV. Apple TV is restricted to MPEG4 videos, while Mac-based mini-users using the corresponding QuickTime encoders can view other movie types such as Divx, Xvid and the Matroska (Mkv) containers or almost any other type with an open source VLC without hacking.
Mac mini's latest Intel Mac phones can watch videos with a HDMI connection with a max 1920x1200 screen size and up to 2560x1600 with a DisplayPort using a standard HDMI connection and a standard MonitorPort. Mac Mini can also run third-party front-end multimedia players for Mac OS X, such as Plex or XBMC, which can be used as a home theatre computer (HTPC).
Mac minig4 G4 used single-core 32-bit 32-bit PowerPC CPUs with 512 kilobytes of on-chip LG2 memory. These Mac minis were either running at 1. In addition, it had an ATI Radeon 9200 GPU with 32M DDR SDRAM in the default versions, which was updated to 64M in 2005 in the high-end edition of the definitive Mac minig4 G4.
Mac G4 uses 333MHz DDR SDRAM, offers up to 1GB of storage, and has a small size direct acces storage card with only one direct acces USB card port. Corrected this problem in the Intel Mac minis with two laptop DMIM sockets. Mac minig 4 G4 uses a 2.
The Mac minig4 also comes with a second ATA cord that plugs into the optic disk player. Mac min comes with two FireWire 400 and FireWire 400 ports and 2 x FireWire 2.0 ports. It was later removed from the Mac min, but an outside modems stayed an optional feature. This system incorporates a built-in loudspeaker and a 1/8-inch analogue micro plug for the audio on the back of the cabinet.
The latest update to the Mac G4 features an upgrade to the Mac mini's built-in Meczanine to integrate AirPort Wi-Fi and Blue tooth technologies on a single die. Previously, the Mac Mini contained an AirPort Extreme map glued to the Meczanine shelf and a dedicated Blue Tooth interface. This new Wi-Fi wireless adapter no longer uses an MMCX socket for the aerial (like its predecessors), but a patented Apple socket.
Genuine OS Mac OSX 10.3 OS version. In contrast to the Intel G4 Mac min with Mac OS 10, a G4 Mac min can run 4 Mac OS 9 "Classic" apps if a booted copy of the OS 9 system folder is present from which the Mac OS 9 system folder can be run. There are two different editions of the latest non-server Mac mini-version, one with a dual-core 64-bit Intel 64-bit Intel 64-bit Intel 64-bit Intel 64-bit 64-bit Intel 64-bit Intel 64-bit Core 5-bit 2.5-bit 2-bit Intel 64-bit 2-bit Intel 64-bit 64-bit Intel 64-bit 2.5-bit 2.5-bit 2.5-bit 2.3-bit Intel 64-bit 2.5-bit 2.6-bit Intel 64-bit 2.6-bit Intel 64-bit 2.5-bit Intel 64-bit 2.5-bit Intel 64-bit 2.5-bit 2.6-bit Intel 2.6-bit Intel 2.6-bit Intel 184.108.40.206.2 G choices for the Mac version of the Mac mini-version.
3 megabytes (.MB) of on-chip C3 memory is available for the slow non-server type and 6 megabytes (.MB) of on-chip C3 memory is available for the fast non-server type and server type; the memory is divided between the core and the GPU (if operational). Earlier versions used a "Penryn" Intel Core 2 Duo processors, "Merom" Core 2 Duo and " Yonah" Core Duo and Solo processors.
Rear wall of a 3.1 Mac min at the end of 2009. Unlike the Mac G4, the Intel-based Mac mini- uses a dual-channel storage design. Originally the Intel-based Mac mini uses 667MBHz DDR2 SDRAM, while early 2009 revisions of 1066MHz DDR3 use 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM.
Starting with the 2011 release, Mac minis will support up to 16GB of storage. Whilst all Mac minis up to and incl. the 2012 release after purchasing support user-expandable storage, the latest version does not support this, because the storage is brazed to the logical card. Mac min is shifting from the previously used Ultra ATA/100 to the newer ATA interface, which provides a 3Gbps max baud rate/data port, but all Intel Mac min devices have been restricted to 1.5Gbps, although the SATA support a 3Gbps data stream.
Each model continues to use 2. In October 2009, a Mac Mini was launched with a version that eliminates the need for an optional disk for a second 1TB of memory. Originally, a combo disk unit was available as default, with the SuperDrive as an optional extra, but for the 2010 model, all those that have an optional disk unit include the SuperDrive as default.
Originally an Intel-based Mac Mini, it features four built-in 2.0 connectors and a FireWire 400 connector. Whereas the Mac G4 only provides analogue sound playback, the Intel-based Mac G4 has a dedicated Mini-TOSLINK/3. Rather than a standalone full-size VII I added a small VI interface along with a small DisplayPort interface that provides dual-screen connectivity.
In contrast to the standard digital video interface (DVI) connector, the MiniDisplayPort features support for remote display resolutions up to 2560×1600, allowing the 30-inch Cinema Display to be used with the Mac min. From this version, the Apple Remote is no longer part of the Mac min package. Mac 2009 enabled 3 different back panel buses to be accessed.

New Mac minis have a solid aluminum chassis known as the Uni-body. Initially designed for the MacBook Air, the unique body production method was later used for the MacBook and MacBook Pro, as well as the iMac, before it was added to the Mac minifamily. The Mac minis, published in 2014, used dual-core processing that was less good at multithreaded workgroups than the 2012 quad-core processor.
In comparison of the high-end versions of both versions, the 2012 version used a 4-core, 8-thread Intel Core i7-3720QM, while the 2014 version used a 2-core, 4-thread Intel Core i7-4578U.
