Apple's Mac Mini follows iMacs, iPads with upgrades

The Mac Mini will start 'shipping' in Australia 18 October

Following revisions to Apple’s iPad range and 27in iMac is the Mac Mini, which was the beneficiary of processing updates and a new operating system.

The Mac Mini will ship in three variants, all of which will pack a dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, either Intel HD Graphics 5000 or Intel Iris Graphics, and will support the latest Wi-Fi 802.11ac standard.

Apple’s updated Yosemite rendition of OS X will come preinstalled on the Mac Min.

The base model will retail for $619 in Australia. It comes with a 1.4GHz (turbo boosted to 2.7GHz) dual-core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics 5000 and a 500GB hard drive.

Apple’s top-of-the-range Mac Mini comes with a 2.8GHz (turbo boost up to 3.3GHz) dual-core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, Intel Iris Graphics and a 1TB hard drive. This model will retail for $1249.

OS X Yosemite

Yosemite is Apple’s best effort yet to bridge the divide between its computing OS X operating system and its mobile iOS platform by introducing innovative continuity features. Activities started on an iMac can be finished on an iPhone or iPad, and vice versa, to the extent it is possible to hold an iPhone call over an iMac’s speaker and microphone.

Additional updates to Yosemite include a design makeover, improvements to Spotlight and new versions of applications, including Safari, Mail, Messages and iTunes.

Apple will begin shipping the Mac Mini tomorrow, the 18 October.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
