Diminutive desktop Mac now on wireless par with MacBook Pros and iMacs
The latest Mac minis introduced by Apple in September boast an unadvertised ultra-fast Wi-Fi capable of transferring data at 450 Mb/s – the same as the MacBook Pro and iMac.French site Macg.co ran some tests on Apple’s Late 2012 Mac Mini and found that it features enhanced Wi-Fi antennas, which translates into Wi-Fi speeds of up to 450 Mb/s.
Some conditions need to be met to create this ultra-fast wireless but according to the French publication, both Apple’s Time Capsule and Airport Extreme will do the job just fine.
Apple this year updated the Mac mini with third-generation dual-core Intel Core i5 and quad-core Intel Core i7 processors with integrated graphics up to 65 percent faster than its predecessor.
The computer ships standard with 4GB of 1600 MHz memory with support for up to 16GB. Apple also threw in an additional USB 3.0 port (for a total of three), a Thunderbolt, HDMI, SDXC, Gigabit Ethernet, and FireWire 800 ports.
