M2 Mac mini is very powerful

Apple announced the M2 Mac mini refresh at the beginning of the year. While the Mac mini still resembles its Intel and M1-based sibling, it packs noticeably faster internals.

The 2023 Mac mini uses the same M2 chip that powers the 2022 MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro. Apple claims the M2 chip delivers 18% faster CPU performance, while the 10-core GPU brings a 30% performance uplift.

As for connectivity, the M2 Mac mini features two Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB-A ports, one HDMI 2.0 port, a headphone jack, and an Ethernet jack.

Compared to the M1, the M2 Mac mini supports two external displays. This makes it a great office desktop replacement for many.

The Mac mini remains one of the cheapest ways you can enter Apple’s ecosystem provided you have access to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

Save 12% on the 2023 Mac mini

In an unexpected move, Apple dropped the price of the entry-level M2 Mac mini with 256GB storage by $100 to $599. But it left the price of the 512GB variant unchanged. This means you must pay a $200 premium for bumping the storage from 256GB to 512GB.

Take advantage of Amazon’s latest deal, and you can get the 512GB M2 Mac mini for $699.99. That’s a sweet $99.01 off its MSRP and makes it a lot more value for money.

Apple only uses a single NAND chip on the 256GB M2 Mac mini. Due to this, the entry-level M2 Mac mini offers significantly slower SSD speeds than its predecessor and its 512GB counterpart. Depending on your use case, this could have a negative impact on your workload.

If you still want the entry-level model, it is available with a modest $20 discount. This drops its price to $579.99.
