The new Mac mini lineup, which includes M2 and M2 Pro chips inside, was introduced by Apple today. The starting price for the M2 Mac mini has been reduced to $599. The M2 Pro Mac mini costs $1299 at launch. A 12-core CPU, a 19-core GPU, and up to 32GB of RAM are all included in the M2 Pro chip.
The new Mac mini is now available for purchase; the first deliveries will start to arrive on January 24. The I/O options on the Mac mini are still numerous. There are two more Thunderbolt 4 ports on the M2 Pro Mac mini. The fastest wireless networking standard, Wi-Fi 6E, is supported by both Mac mini configurations out of the box.
The Apple Online Store is now accepting orders for the new Mac mini. An M2 chip with an 8-core CPU, 10-core GPU, 256GB SSD, and 8 GB RAM is included in the $599 base model configuration. The M2 Pro chip’s $1299 base model configuration includes a 512 GB SSD, a 16-core GPU, a 10-core CPU, and 16GB of RAM.
The new lineup also means that Apple no longer sells the Intel Mac mini, leaving the Mac Pro as the sole Mac still available for purchase with an Intel CPU.
