Apple Mac Mini Updated

Now Upgraded With The Pro-Tier Chip

A new Mac Mini has recently been unveiled by Apple, and it will now include the M2 chip, including the Pro version of the chip. The Mac Mini was previously only available with the entry-level M1 chip, which is the same one used in the MacBook Air. This is the first time Apple has introduced Pro-tier chips to the Mac Mini, which will result in improved performance and speed.



The M2 Pro version of the Mac Mini can support three displays; two displays up to 6K/60Hz over Thunderbolt, one 4K/60Hz display over HDMI, and one 8K display, making it the first Mac Mini to do so. The standard M2 Mac Mini can support up to two displays, having the standard Apple display qualities of one display of up to 6K/60Hz over a Thunderbolt connection and a second display of up to 5K/60Hz over Thunderbolt or a 4K/60Hz over HDMI.


While the new M2 and M2 Pro chipset options, as well as greater memory and storage options, are available for the new Mac Mini, the outside design of the model is unchanged from that of the outgoing model. The M2 Mac mini’s standard configuration includes a 256GB SSD, 8GB of unified memory with 100GB/s memory bandwidth, and an M2 chip (8-core CPU, 10-core GPU). While the version with the M2 Pro chip can support up to three monitors, this system only supports two displays. The 24-GB LPDDR5 unified memory and 8TB of high-speed storage on the M2 Pro Mac mini can be configured to have a 10-core CPU and a 16-core GPU.


The M2 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage are included in the Mac Mini’s standard configuration. Along with two USB-A ports and two Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C) connectors on the back of the device, an upgrade from the Thunderbolt 3 ports on the previous iteration, it has an HDMI port, gigabit ethernet, and a conventional headphone jack which will enable users to use wired headphones instead of always using wireless headphones.

Price & Availability

The new model of Apple Mac Mini has a starting price of $599. Additionally, you can modify it to upgrade the M2 Pro’s 10-core CPU / 16-core GPU processor to a 12-core CPU / 19-core variation for an extra $300 and add an extra 16GB of RAM for $400. The Mac Mini is now available online for purchase for it right now and will be launched worldwide in all Apple stores on January 24.
