Mac Mini (stylized as Mac mini) is a small form factor desktop computer developed and marketed by Apple Inc. As of 2022[update], it is positioned between the consumer all-in-one iMac and the professional Mac Studio and Mac Pro as one of four current Mac desktop computers. Since launch, it has shipped without a display, keyboard, and mouse. The machine was initially branded as \"BYODKM\" (Bring Your Own Display, Keyboard, and Mouse) as a strategic pitch to encourage users to switch from Windows and Linux computers.
The Mac Mini G4 has two USB 2.0 ports and one FireWire 400 port. Networking is supported with 10/100 Ethernet and a 56k V.92 modem, while 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth were additional, build-to-order options. External displays are supported via a DVI port, and adapters for VGA, S-Video, and composite video output were available. The system contains a built-in speaker and an 1/8-inch stereo mini jack for analog sound output. The new Wi-Fi card no longer used an MMCX-Female connector for the antenna, as do prior models, but rather a proprietary Apple one.
The Intel-based Mac Mini includes four USB 2.0 ports and one FireWire 400 port. The I/O ports were changed with the early 2009 revision, adding a fifth USB 2.0 and swapping the FireWire 400 port for a FireWire 800 port. An infrared receiver was added, allowing the use of an Apple Remote. Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and 802.11g Wi-Fi became standard and the Ethernet port was upgraded to Gigabit. A built-in 56k modem was no longer available. The 2009 models added 802.11 draft-n and later 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth was upgraded from 2.0 to 2.1. External displays are supported through a DVI port. The 2009 models have Mini-DVI and Mini DisplayPort video output, allowing the use of two displays. The Mini DisplayPort supports displays with a resolution up to 25601600, which allows use of the 30-inch Cinema Display. The Intel-based Mac Mini has separate Mini-TOSLINK/3.5 mm mini-jacks that support both analog audio input and output, and optical digital S/PDIF input and output.
Pre-2009 models have a video connector that is compatible with DVI, HDMI (video only), SVGA, S-Video, and composite video with appropriate adapters; for audio output, it has both the analog mini-headphone port and a digital optical fiber port. The addition of a HDMI port on the 2010 Mac Mini simplified connection to high-definition televisions and home theater AV receivers. The HDMI port supports video resolutions of up to 1080p and eight-channel, 24-bit audio at 192 kHz, and Dolby Surround 5.1 and stereo output. The 2014 model added 4K output, and the 2018 model supports Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision, and HDR10, and uses the macOS Catalina operating system.
The new 2018 Mac mini can now be configured with a 6 Core 3.2Ghz Intel Core i7 8th Generation desktop class cpu for $1299. This is a high-end powerful desktop cpu that blows away the performance of the previous laptop class chips. In fact, this is approaching the power of the new iMac Pro and blows away some of the older Mac Pro desktops. Thanks to the new cooling system this actually runs a lot quieter than my older iMac. Lightroom used to really kick up the fans of my iMac especially when importing or exporting images. You can see my Geekbench scores here, this cpu is fast!
Hi,I am wondering if you are still using this rx580 gaming box. I am interested to buy this combo setup: mac mini 2018 and the gaming box.I have been on the fence about this just because I heard many negative reviews about this egpu. Many people claim it has really poor quality and broke after a few weeks of use. Or sometimes not consistent performance.
I use a benq SW2700 (2560 x 1440) and used to get a very good calibration with the mini 2012. Now I cant get a proper profile either using benq software or iOne. Do you think this is a gpu problem Did you notice any diference
The Mac mini \"Core i7\" 3.0 (Late 2014/Aluminum Unibody) technically is a \"configure-to-order\" option for the MGEN2LL/A Mac mini \"Core i5\" 2.6 (Late 2014) and MGEQ2LL/A Mac mini \"Core i5\" 2.8 (Late 2014), but also is documented as a separate model for reader convenience. Other than the processor (and its corresponding level 3 cache), this model can be identical to its \"stock\" counterparts.The Apple Mac mini \"Core i7\" 3.0 (Late 2014/Aluminum Unibody) features a 22 nm \"Haswell\" 3.0 GHz Intel \"Core i7\" (4578U) processor with two independent processor \"cores\" on a single chip, a 4 MB shared level 3 cache, 8 GB of onboard 1600 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM (which could be upgraded to 16 GB at the initial time of system purchase, but cannot be upgraded later), either a 1 TB hard drive or a 1 TB \"Fusion Drive\" (which combines a 1 TB hard drive and a 128 GB SSD), and an \"integrated\" Intel Iris 5100 graphics processor that shares system memory.Connectivity includes two Thunderbolt 2 ports, four USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n compatible), and Bluetooth 4.0 as well as an SDXC card slot.Compared to its predecessor, this model looks identical, but it has a more advanced architecture and graphics, Thunderbolt 2 capability, and faster Wi-Fi. On the other hand, it has a processor with half the number of cores, no longer supports Firewire, has RAM that can no longer be upgraded, and no longer supports two 2.5\" drives.All Mac mini systems are configured by default without a display, keyboard, or mouse, but numerous Apple and third-party options are available.Also see: What are all the differences between the \"Late 2014\" Aluminum Mac mini models Which is best for my needsWhat are all the differences between the \"Late 2014\" Aluminum Mac mini models and the models replaced

Apple started its transition from Intel to Apple silicon in late 2020. The Mac mini was among the first in the Mac lineup to receive the first taste of Apple's custom chips. The Mac mini has also been known for its value and performance, with the switch to an M-series chip making the machine even more attractive. 59ce067264
