Apple just announced its newest Mac Mini desktop computer with the custom Apple-designed M1 chip a few weeks ago, but it is already on sale as part of the latest round of Black Friday Apple deals. Act now, as the compact desktop computer is down to one of its lowest prices ever thanks to Black Friday deals, despite what looks like just a modest $60 savings.
Now selling for the new low price of $640 instead of $700, there’s plenty of reason to pick up this latest Mac Mini. Unlike prior versions, this desktop computer comes with a custom-designed Apple M1 CPU inside. That means Apple is able to optimize the hardware for maximized performance. As many early reviews have discovered, you’ll get system performance on this Mac Mini that’s closer to what you see on Windows laptops with entry-level dedicated graphics cards.
This Mac Mini will not only blaze through webpages and other things, but it will also edit videos quite fast. There’s even support for running iOS and iPhone or iPad apps, too, which you can’t find on any other Mac Mini model with an Intel processor. That’s thanks to the technology inside the 8-core processor and the 8-core GPU on the Apple M1 CPU die.
Do note that this Mac Mini comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. It’s the base model, but there’s always room for expansion via plugging in a USB hard drive or solid-state-drive the USB-Type A ports, or Thunderbolt 3 ports on the rear.
As the name suggests, the Mac Mini is also quite compact. It’s just 1.4 inches thick and measures about 7.5 inches in length. It’s also quite light, too, at only 2.6 pounds. Not to mention, the Mac mini has a fancy silver look that will look understated and elegant on your desk.
Of course, you’ll need a monitor to go with the Mac Mini since it’s just a desktop, but there are plenty on sale as part of Amazon Black Friday deals.

Don’t forget, there are other Mac-themed deals out there, too. As Black Friday continues to go on throughout the day, you’ll see Black Friday Macbook deals on MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs, and even other Apple gear like iPads and iPhones.
