Apple products are getting harder and harder to come by as we approach the end of the holiday shopping season, but we’ve got a great deal today that will arrive in time to put under the tree: Amazon is selling the 512GB M1 Mac mini for $750 when an automatic $49 discount is applied at checkout, matching an all-time low we last saw over Black Friday.
The diminutive M1 Mac mini doesn’t have a keyboard, monitor, or mouse, but it’s packed with performance. You get an 8-core M1 processor with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage along with a pair of Thunderbolt/USB 4 ports, two USB-A ports, HDMI, ethernet, and a headphone jack. And since it’s so small, it’ll fit nicely on or under a desk. We called it the Mac with the “best ever bang for your buck” in our 4.5-star review and our opinion hasn’t changed.
Amazon says it will ship in time for Christmas so go grab one before they’re all gone and the price shoots back up.
