Tuesday afternoon, all the spotlight was on the new iMac M1platforms, iPad Pro, and the long-awaited AirTags. At the end of the keynote, the Apple web Store was operational again, with the new updated devices.
But there was one of them that also suffered an update yesterday, but went completely unnoticed: The Mac mini. As of now, the Apple Silicon Mac minis that are for sale, have as an option the high-speed 10 GB Ethernet network, much faster than the standard 1 GB Ethernet.
Apple took advantage of the "stoppage" of its online store on Tuesday due to the presentation "Spring loaded" and "slipped" a new update of a device without making noise. As of now, the Mac mini M1 has an optional Ethernet port of 10 Gigabit, which was previously only available on the Intel version of the same Mac.
By ordering a Mac mini M1 from the Apple online store, users can now choose the Mac with a 10 Gigabit Ethernet port, faster than the traditional Gigabit Ethernet port. From Tuesday this option is available for the first time for models Mac mini with M1 processor.
The option increases the price of the Mac mini by 115 Euros to add to the price of the device, which starts at 799 Euros in its most basic version. This configuration would be that of a Mac mini M1, with 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of SSD, and 1 GB Ethernet network.
If we want the most expensive configuration available on a Mac mini, it would go up to 2.064 Euros, with a Mac mini M1 with 16 GB of RAM, 2 TB of SSD, and 10 GB Ethernet.
The new versions with high-speed Ethernet are now available to order, with an approximate delivery in Spain for the first week of May.
