The Mac Mini is the smallest Mac desktop computer, taking up less area than an iPad Pro, and is also a more affordable alternative to the all-in-one iMac desktop. In order to get it set up, you’ll need your own display, mouse, and keyboard.
This model is equipped with a 2.6GHz Intel Core i5 processor, which isn’t the most advanced processor on the market, but still exhibits solid speed and performance. It packs 8GB of RAM and a generous hard drive with 1TB of storage. That’s plenty of space for all of your work PDFs and spreadsheets to live happily. There’s also a 128GB Fusion Drive, which is a hybrid drive combining a hard drive and flash storage in a single volume for improved performance and storage capability.
While this Mac Mini hails from 2014, it’s been refurbished to work like new. It may have a few scratches or dings on the body, but don’t judge a book by its cover. The Mac Mini is still a workhorse.
Regularly $699, you can grab this refurbished Mac Mini Core i5 in silver for only $459.99 for a limited time.
