Looking to get the best possible deal on the M1 Mac mini? Amazon is just brought back its whopping $129 discount on the machine. That means you pay just $569.99 — down from the Mac mini’s retail price of $699.

A coupon, automatically applied at checkout for a limited time, makes this the lowest price for the M1 Mac mini so far.

M1 Mac mini: A capable workhorse

The Mac mini became a potent workhorse when Apple switched to its M1 chip, packing an 8-core CPU and 8-core GPU. Featuring 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, the base model has enough horsepower to handle your daily tasks like browsing the web, light photo and video editing, emails, etc.

The M1 Mac mini scores better on single-core benchmarks than all Intel-based Macs. This is despite the machine having a compact footprint that can blend into any desk space.

Get the M1 Mac mini for just $569.99

The M1 Mac mini is not a bad offering at its full price. But it becomes a no-brainer at the discounted price. Especially when manufacturing delays make certain new Macs hard to come by.

For the current Mac mini deal, Amazon’s listing will only show a $30 discount on the $699 retail price tag of the machine. However, an additional $99.01 discount will be automatically applied during checkout. So you pay only $569.99 for what is arguably the best compact desktop PC on the market right now.

The deal only applies to the 256GB M1 Mac mini, however. But if you think you need more space, you can always plug in a speedy external drive like the Samsung T7 to expand your storage capacity.

If you have been looking to buy the M1 Mac mini for a while, this is a deal that you should not miss. The machine is unlikely to be discounted further than this anytime soon. So make the most of this deal as long as it lasts.
