Apple has officially unveiled their brand new Mac mini product line, which can now be purchased with either an M2 or M2 Pro central processing unit (CPU). The M2 Mac mini now has a starting price of $599, which is $100 more than the previous pricing. The M2 Pro Mac mini may be purchased for a starting price of $1299. A price reduction of $100 is made available for educational institutions and the students enrolled in those institutions to use.
The M2 Pro chip features a central processing unit (CPU) that has 12 cores, a graphics processing unit (GPU) that has 19 cores, and it can store up to 32 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM). Beginning today, you will be able to make an order for the new Mac mini, and the 24th of January is slated to mark the beginning of the first week in which customers will begin to receive their orders.
The Mac mini lives up to its well-deserved reputation for delivering an extensive range of input and output options. In addition to a socket for headphones, the M2 Mac mini features one port for connecting an external display, as well as two Thunderbolt 4 connectors, two USB-A ports, one HDMI connector, Gigabit Ethernet (with an optional 10 Gigabit option), and two USB-A ports. The M2 Pro Mac mini has a total of four Thunderbolt 4 ports, which is an improvement of two over its predecessor.
Both of the several versions of the Mac mini that are available provide native compatibility for the wireless networking standard known as Wi-Fi 6E, which is the most recent and technologically advanced of all of the standards now in use. In addition to that, support for Bluetooth version 5.3 is incorporated. Apple asserts that the strength of the M2 Pro results in up to 2.5 times quicker performance in Affinity Photo, 4.2 times quicker ProRes transcoding in Final Cut Pro, and up to 2.8 times quicker gaming in Resident Evil Village. These comparisons are done in comparison to the M1 Mac mini from the generation before this one.
