The Apple Mac Mini M1 hit a record low price of just $600 on Amazon. A $50 coupon now brings the compact mini desktop down to what was noted as a "record low" price for the computer.
Apple Mac Mini M1 Sale
According to the story by Engadget, there have been 512GB Mac Mini M1s going on sale throughout November. Apple's base 256GB Mac Mini M1 model is discounted. The article states that the small desktop's price was knocked off by $50 on Amazon and it also has its own extra, automatically applied $50 coupon.
With the two coupons in place, the publication states that this would slash the price to $600. So far, this is the best price that has been seen when it comes to affordable M1 machines available.
MacBook Air M1 vs. Mac Mini M1
For those who don't mind paying a little more to get the extra storage, the 512GB model is still for sale for $750 due to another automatically applied price coupon that brings the price down by an additional $30 on the sale. The MacBook Air M1 starts at $999, and the Mac Mini M1 is said to be the most budget-friendly way for users to upgrade to the latest Apple chips.
The publication notes that users can expect the new Mac Mini to perform very similarly to the beefier MacBook Air when it comes to speed and smoothness. Engadget was impressed with the M1 chipset's total performance.
Apple Mac Mini M1 Specs
The Apple Mac Mini M1 has an eight-core GPU, an eight-core CPU, and its own 16-core Neural Engine capable of handling machine learning tasks. Buyers will also get 8GB of RAM when purchasing the machine with the 256GB storage option.
However, for users planning on storing multiple photos, documents, and some other things on the desktop, the 512GB model could be a better fit. While previous rumors said that buyers would be getting an updated Mac Mini before the end of 2021, somehow, this did not happen, and the year is almost up.
Apple Mac Mini M1 Design
This means that the device still looks pretty much the same as it has for a couple of years now. The Apple Mac Mini M1 remains a small silver box that houses a number of ports, including two USB-A connectors, two Thunderbolt ports, an HDMI port, an Ethernet port, and a standard 3.5mm headphone jack.
Due to the computer's size, good array of ports, as well as its upgraded power with the new M1 chip, the Mac Mini remains a solid option for people that want a compact machine without compromising the computer's performance.
As of the moment, the Apple Mac Mini M1 256GB option is currently listed on Amazon for $649, which could be due to the automatically deducted $50 coupon not being factored in yet.
