Gadgets from Apple cannot be called budget technology, but as it turned out, there are exceptions in this case. And one of them can be called a desktop Mac mini 2020.
The basic version of the computer in Ukraine can be purchased for only $699. Therefore, users who have long dreamed of joining the "apple" ecosystem - can buy a Mac mini. And especially if you add to all this, the fact that the gadget has one of the best processors on the M1 market.
For some users, a desktop computer may seem like something new. In fact, this device has existed for a long time and occupies a special place among all Apple products. It has always been purchased by those users who wanted to get a powerful processor without spending a lot of money to buy expensive laptops.
The novelty of 2020 turned out to be quite productive due to the new M1 processor. But, insiders claim that this is not the limit and in the fall of 2021 we will be able to see a new gadget with an updated M1X.
What is special about Mac mini desktops
News about this product rarely appears on the Internet, as it is not included in the list of popular gadgets from Apple, however, the line has existed on the market for more than 13 years.
It all started with PowerPC, then there was a transition to Intel processors, and today the desktop computer is equipped with the most powerful on the market M1. And most interestingly, the internal content was constantly changing, but the design remained unchanged for 11 years.
The revolution occurred in the fall of 2020, when the entire line moved to a new processor. But, here is a design that today can be considered almost legendary and has remained unchanged.
Visually, the computer looks like a small "bar" 20 cm wide, 3.6 cm thick and weighing 1.2 kg, which is even less than the lightest laptop in the Air series. The design of the device is minimalist and today it is quite difficult to present the Mac mini in a completely different form.
The body of the device is made of the same aluminum. At the bottom there are plastic pads that help lift the computer slightly above the surface, if desired, each user can remove them. It is worth noting that, unlike earlier versions in the novelty, you cannot change or add a RAM module. Therefore, already in the process of choosing, you need to think carefully about how much memory is needed with a view to the future.
The front panel has a sensor that will symbolize turning the device on and off. You can also find several Thunderbolt / USB4, USB-A, HDMI 2.0 ports, as well as a headphone output.
In addition, the device is equipped with a wireless module Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0. There is an external speaker and ventilation grille. At the same time even during performance of the most difficult tasks the device will not make noise.
The main feature of a product like the Mac mini is a small case that houses a powerful processor capable of performing a variety of tasks.
Features of design and complete set of Mac mini
The Mac mini 2020 M1 comes in a traditional white box for the Apple company. At the same time, as in the case of a laptop, there is not a single mention, even in a small font about the use of the M1 processor.
The complete set of the desktop computer is rather modest. There is no peripheral that is included with the iMac. Therefore, the user has to take care of the purchase of the mouse and other important components in advance.
