The new MacBook Air will be sold in Australia for $1849 from 7 November onwards. The new iPad Pro, which will have facial authentication, is priced at $1229 while the Australian price for the new Mac Mini is $1249.
The Mac mini has been considerably beefed up, with quad- and six-core processors, up to 64GB of faster memory and all-flash storage.
“Mac mini is loved by customers for its ability to be used in incredibly diverse environments — from casual desktop use, to live professional performances, to multiple Mac mini computers powering through video renderings and compiling software code, to racks of thousands in giant app build farms — anywhere a small but mighty Mac is needed to get the job done,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice-president of Worldwide Marketing.
"All of this power is packed into the same-sized enclosure as before, perfect for customers updating or creating all‑new installations where Mac mini is the ideal solution.”
The iPad Pro has no home button, a USB-C port, gigabit-class LTE and up to 1TB of storage.
Said Schiller: “The new iPad Pro is a huge step forward for powerful, creative, mobile computing; it has an all-new, thinner design; speeds through projects with the super-fast A12X Bionic chip and unlocks with a glance using Face ID in any orientation — while you’re sitting or standing, with iPad Pro on your desk or lap, with the new Smart Keyboard Folio and new Apple Pencil."
The new MacBook Air will have a Retina display, faster SSDs, wide stereo sound, the Apple T2 Security Chip and Thunderbolt 3.
“Redesigning MacBook Air started with a stunning Retina display and all-day battery life, and then we added Touch ID and the Apple T2 Security Chip, the latest processors, incredible sound, the third-generation keyboard and Force Touch trackpad, high-speed Thunderbolt 3 ports and, of course, macOS Mojave, in a beautiful, thinner, lighter, all-aluminium design that a whole new generation of MacBook Air customers are going to love," said Schiller.
