Does it surprise you that I talk about the Mac mini of the Cupertino? I ask this because in the latest Apple presentation, this computer together with the Mac Pro is still the great forgotten within the Apple ecosystem as far as computers are concerned. Many are the people who today still do not understand how Apple has neglected a product that could bring you a lot of income if they gave it a facelift and the Mac mini is a lot of Mac mini.
In the last Keynote, Apple focused on fine-tuning its 12-inch MacBook and MacBook Pro with and without Touch Bar, but nonetheless, nothing at all for the youngest of the family. The Mac mini is still a great computer, very compact and perfect for thousands of situations even more if we refer to the educational sector.
How low are the sales of the Mac mini? Has the Mac mini died alone or has it been loaded out of carelessness? What is clear is that if Apple does not show signs of life in terms of updates both in design and hardware, it is because its efforts are not, currently, focused on this product. What Apple wants is to renew itself and have new options that bring in more and more followers and proof of this is the Apple Watch, the HomePod, the Apple Pencil, the AirPods ...
As for computers, it seems that consumers want things easy and currently it is much more feasible to buy an iMac right out of the box and not have to do anything to start using it than to buy a Mac mini or Mac Pro and have to be looking for the best screen option for the same.

For all this is why surely Apple is letting the Mac mini die, which I see as a big mistake is that in places like the education sector it would be a sector in which This type of computer would be very good for the thousands of digital whiteboards that are assembled and that need compact computers to work. The truth is, I felt sad today when, due to a question from a colleague about whether this type of computer is still feasible, it occurred to me that Apple has forgotten them. Sorry ... I think ... DEP Mac mini. What do you think?
