Mac mini features fourth-generation Intel Core processors, faster integrated graphics, Thunderbolt 2, next-generation Wi-Fi and plenty of ports. Everything you expect from a Mac. And more.
 

Fourth-generation
Intel Core processors.
The little engine that does.

With fourth-generation Intel Core processors, Mac mini keeps up with computers twice its size. You can choose a 1.4GHz, 2.6GHz or 2.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5. Or go for an even more powerful 3.0GHz dual-core Intel Core i7.

When you’re using processor-intensive applications, Turbo Boost 2.0 increases the clock speed up to 3.5GHz. Hyper-Threading lets each core run two threads, so OS X multitasks even more efficiently. And an integrated memory controller connects fast 1600MHz memory directly to the processor, so it gets straight to work on your data. In short, Mac mini is a little box of vroom.
 

Intel Iris Graphics and HD Graphics 5000.
Every pixel comes alive.

Intel Iris Graphics and Intel HD Graphics 5000 deliver up to 90 per cent more pixel-pushing performance than the previous generation of integrated graphics.1 So the video you watch and the games you play are smoother and more responsive. Flipping through photo albums is a breeze. And now you’ve got all the power you need to edit your HD video into a film worthy of a red-carpet premiere.
 

Mac mini Graphics Performance

Up to 90% faster than the previous-generation Mac mini.
 

Storage.
Make it big. And fast.

Fusion Drive.
A high capacity for intelligence.

The 1TB Fusion Drive combines a 1TB hard drive with amazingly quick PCIe-based flash storage.2 Fusion Drive automatically and intelligently manages your data so that frequently used apps, documents, photos and other files stay on the faster flash storage, while infrequently used items move to the hard drive. You’ll enjoy shorter boot times and, as the system learns how you work, you’ll see faster application launches and quicker file access. Best of all, you don’t have to do a thing to make it happen.

You can also choose a 500GB or a 1TB hard drive or even a 2TB Fusion Drive.2 Or configure your Mac mini with up to 1TB of flash storage in a solid-state drive for the fastest performance. Flash storage delivers nearly nine times the performance of a disk drive3 — speed you’ll notice when you boot up your Mac mini, launch an app or browse your photo library.
 

Fusion Drive Performance

Up to four times faster than a 5400-rpm 2.5-inch hard drive.
 

Thunderbolt 2.
The fastest, most versatile I/O in any desktop. Of any size.

Thunderbolt 2 technology in Mac mini is phenomenally fast. The two Thunderbolt 2 ports on Mac mini feature dual 20-Gbps channels for data transfer. That’s up to four times faster than USB 3. But beyond speed, Thunderbolt gives you unprecedented expansion capabilities. You can daisy-chain as many as six Thunderbolt devices to a single port. And since Thunderbolt is based on DisplayPort technology, Mini DisplayPort devices like the Apple LED Cinema Display plug straight in too.
 

USB 3, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. You’re very well connected.

Plenty of ports make it ready for anything.

As powerful as Thunderbolt 2 is, it’s just one of your options. If you have a third-party display, you can use the HDMI port to connect it. You can connect two displays to see more of your photos, movies and documents at the same time. And a built-in SDXC card slot makes it easy to import those photos and videos from your digital camera.

USB 3.

With USB 3 built into Mac mini, you can connect your external hard drive and transfer large files in seconds instead of minutes. Every Mac mini comes with four USB 3 ports — with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2 — and you can connect all your USB-compatible devices, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod or digital camera.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Powerful 802.11ac wireless technology is built into every Mac mini. It automatically locates your Wi-Fi network, so you can connect and start surfing the web, printing and streaming your music wirelessly. Bluetooth wireless technology is also built in, so you can connect accessories such as a wireless keyboard and mouse. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth also make it easy to seamlessly share your work with your other devices using Handoff or AirDrop.

Bring your own display, keyboard and mouse.

Plug your own display, keyboard and mouse into Mac mini. Turn it on. And just like that, everything works together. That’s one of the great things about Mac mini. You can mix and match it with almost anything.

No screen is too big.

It’s easy to connect Mac mini to the biggest screen in the house — your HDTV — courtesy of a built-in HDMI port. All it takes is one HDMI cable to start enjoying movies from iTunes, surfing the web and flipping through your photo library, all in brilliant HD. And when you just want to listen to music, you can play your entire iTunes collection through your home entertainment centre, or stream it to a set of speakers in any room via an AirPort Express Base Station.
