Apple solders RAM into new Mac mini to block memory upgrades
This week, Apple unveiled a number of new and updated products. The latest additions to the iPad range were the crowd pleasers, while the iMac with Retina 5K Display was something of a headline-grabber. Yosemite was expected, but the Mac mini refresh came slightly out of the blue.
For anyone looking for a cheap way to get their hands on a Mac, it’s a great starting point — prices start at just $499. But you’d better make sure you select a model with enough RAM when you place your order — Apple has taken steps that mean it is impossible for buyers to install more memory.
