Apple launches new Mac mini with M1 chip

Apple did what we expected it to do and announced new Mac hardware at its November 2020 event. Meet the new Mac Mini.

The latest in the Mac Mini line features Apple’s new custom-made M1 chip for increased performance. Apple says the new CPU is three times faster than the previous model. The graphics are also six times faster, so you might theoretically be able to play video games on it. Maybe.

Ports matter, so Apple made sure to mention that the new Mac Mini has two USB-C ports that support Thunderbolt. Last but definitely not least, the Mac Mini starts at $699, a $100 decrease from the last model’s starting price. 

The announcement came alongside the reveals of a new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, all of which use Apple’s proprietary M1 chip. All of the new computers are available for pre-order now and will launch next week.

Mac mini spec:

• Starting $699
• 3x Faster CPU
• 8 core GPU 6x faster graphics
• Neural Engine to Mac mini
• 1/10 the size of a comparable PC and 5x faster
• Ethernet, USB 4/Thunderbolt, HDMI 2.0, USB-A
