The new Mac mini is an impressive little price of hardware, but we initially weren’t terribly impressed with its price. Thankfully, Amazon and B&H are both selling it for a mere $699, which is a full $100 off the $799 it normally sells for. It’s enough to make it a much more appealing purchase if you’re simply looking for a relatively inexpensive Mac.
That’s also the best price that we’ve seen for it to date. For that price you’re getting a scrappy little device with four Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports, and an HDMI 2.0 jack. It also comes with an impressive 3.5 GHz Intel Core i3 Quad-Core chip, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of SSD storage. Honestly, that’s a pretty impressive Mac for that price.
If you want to know a little more, be sure to check out the review we published last month. We had this to say:
“Whether you should upgrade from the previous Mac mini is a no-brainer: Do it. If you use apps that can take advantage of multiple cores, you’ll see a huge improvement that’s well worth the cost. Even if you don’t use multi-core apps and use only consumer-level software, you’ll see a marked improvement in speed. You may have to buy a USB hub and a video adapter, but it’s worth it.”
