Refreshed in October 2012, the Mac mini Model A1347 externally looks the same as its predecessor with Thunderbolt, Ethernet, and Firewire "800" ports, but the four USB ports have been upgraded to USB 3.0. Internally, this update features Core i5 or i7 processors with faster internal architecture, faster graphics, and faster RAM. As with the Mid 2011 this Mac mini lacks an internal optical drive.
