Along with the new Retina 13-in. MacBook Pro and iMacs, Apple also tweaked the Mac Mini by switching to newer Intel processors, the dual-core i5 and quad-core i7. The Mini's prices -- $599 for the lowest-priced model, $999 for one configured for OS X Server that packs two hard drives -- remained the same as the previous generation.
Although the Mac is the longest-lived product in Apple's portfolio, with the first model coming off the line in 1984, personal computers are now a small part of the company's business. In the quarter that ended June 30, Mac sales accounted for just 14% of Apple's total revenue, less than a third of the iPhone's contribution and about half of the iPad's.
