New Concept Apple M1X Mac mini Renders Show Slimmer Profile, Plexiglass Top, More
Apple will launch a new Mac mini with a redesigned chassis and a new M1X processor inside according to a new report by leaker Jon Prosser.
In a new Front Page Tech video, Prosser showed off renders based on information he’s been told and it looks like the next Mac mini is going to shrink considerably.
Based on the images shared, the new Mac mini will be around half the thickness of the current Mac mini whole also making the switch to a silver or white color. The top will no longer be metal, with talk of a plexiglass finish similar to the Mac minis of yesteryear. That’s sure to go down well with those of us old enough to remember those things.
There might be more to that plexiglass than nostalgia, though. Prosser also suggests that Apple has been toying with the idea of offering the new Mac mini in different colors, although that is far from confirmed.
Prosser’s report also notes that we can look forward to plenty of ports around the back of this new Mac mini, although we shouldn’t expect any sign of an SD card reader unfortunately.
The M1X chip that is thought to power this device will be super-quick and we can’t wait for Apple to announce it. There’s no indication when that will happen, although with WWDC around the corner you never do know what surprises Apple could spring on us.
