M1 Mac mini might be all the computer you need

Don’t be fooled by the M1 Mac mini’s small size. It is powered by the same M1 chip found inside the 2020 MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro. Apple claims its M1 chip brings 3x faster CPU performance and 6x faster GPU performance than the Intel-based version.

On the back of the tiny titan are a pair of USB-C ports that support Thunderbolt and USB 4. You can use them to plug in high-bandwidth accessories directly into the machine. There’s also a pair of USB-A ports, an HDMI 2.0 port and Ethernet. There’s even a 3.5mm headset jack.

The small size means you can fit the M1 Mac mini on any desk with limited space. And it won’t disappoint you on the performance front either. The Mac mini is ideal for light video and photo editing, browsing, and office work. Despite packing so much power, the tiny computer runs silently, hardly ever turning on the fan. This is all thanks to the incredible efficiency of the M1 chip.

512GB M1 Mac mini again drops to its lowest-ever price

The 512GB M1 Mac mini with 8GB RAM carries an MSRP of $899, but Amazon currently lists it with a $30 discount. You get an additional $119.01 off at checkout. The promotion is only available for eligible accounts; if you don’t qualify, the offer may not show up for you.

Post the discount, you can get the M1 Mac mini with 512GB storage for $749.99 — its lowest ever price. Usually, Amazon offers a $40-$50 discount on the machine, so you should not miss this deal.
