The Updated Mac Mini

Earlier this morning Apple released a new Mac Mini onto the world and I was quite surprised at some of the subtle design tweaks that are looking great. First is the all aluminum body which is way better than the janky plastic top on previous versions. Now the overall body is much cleaner and sleeker looking including how it wraps into the back of the computer.

But what I really love about the new design is actually the bottom of the computer. Most people probably won’t ever upgrade their computer themselves, but Apple has designed an easy access hatch so you can swap out (I’m guessing) the RAM or memory of the computer. You simply rotate the black disc on the bottom of the computer and voila, you’re inside. I’m a firm believer that what’s most important are the small details and this is a perfect example.
