B&H Photo would have just made a big mistake. The American seller of photo equipment has indeed listed two new Apple products on its online store, although without a photo to illustrate and which it is specified that they are not yet available. The first is a curious “mac mini tower“, which is said to come with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage as well as what looks like an M1 Pro chip. As a reminder, this is the new generation processor that is also found on the 2021 MacBook Pro.
As for the second machine, it is a simple “Mac mini” also in 8/256 but this time with a M2 chip. This is expected by many analysts to actually be unveiled at the upcoming WWDC, but it is estimated that it will land in a revamped MacBook Air in several colors.
What’s better than now?
Unsurprisingly, if these specs are true they should do much better than the most recent Mac mini which has an M1 motherboard. Its price starts at 799 euros with an eight-core CPU and 256 GB of memory in SSD, with Gigabit Ethernet port for a faster connection.
Apple also still offers the Mac mini Intel, powered by an eighth-generation hexa-core i5 processor clocked at 3 GHz and with 512 GB of storage for 1,259 euros. The bill can obviously climb depending on the configuration chosen (it is possible to add RAM, accessories and preinstalled software).
More details from 7 p.m.
It’s impossible to know if B&H simply misjudged Apple’s future announcements or if the company was indeed informed in advance. To get to the bottom of it, see you tonight at seven o’clock: the Worldwide Developer Conference kicks off with its traditional opening keynote at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino. It is possible to follow live from YouTube or with us.
The star of the event would therefore be the Macbook Air 2, but a Mac Pro with an Apple silicon chip also seems to be in the cards. It is indeed the only computer still on sale from the Californian brand not to have been entitled to it for the moment.
