An inch and a half tall. And nothing short of amazing.

Sleek aluminum design. Easy access to memory. A built-in power supply.
Mac mini makes the most of every square inch.

Forged ahead. Way ahead.

Mac mini features a 1.4-inch-thin seamless unibody enclosure carved from a single, solid block of aluminum. It’s created using computer numerical control, or CNC, machines — the same kind used by the aerospace industry to build mission-critical spacecraft components. This ensures absolute precision of every component of the Mac mini enclosure. Not to mention a stunning aluminum fit and finish that will make any desk proud.

No detail is too mini.

The power supply is built right into Mac mini. So there’s no bulky brick, and there are fewer cables to connect. A removable panel on the bottom makes upgrading the memory completely painless. And once you’re inside, you’ll see how clean and organized Mac mini is. With attention paid to the tiniest details. Like the air intake vent. It’s practically invisible. And when the fan is running, you’ll barely hear it. Mac mini is full of big ideas.

Many ports. Major possibilities.

Built-in Thunderbolt technology lets you daisy-chain up to six Thunderbolt peripherals, including the Apple Thunderbolt Display, to a single port. It also supports Mini DisplayPort peripherals you might already have, like the Apple LED Cinema Display. The HDMI port lets you connect Mac mini to your HDTV with a single cable. And a built-in SDXC card slot makes speedy work of transferring photos and videos from your digital cameras.

Exactly what you need. And nothing you don’t.

The iTunes Store and the Mac App Store have made it so easy to download music, movies, and apps that you probably won’t need an optical disc drive. So we designed Mac mini without one and used that extra space to squeeze in more powerful processors, advanced graphics, and Thunderbolt technology.

The world’s most energy-efficient desktop computer.*

What Mac mini doesn’t do could be its biggest feat. It doesn’t waste energy. Even though the new Mac mini can deliver a huge performance boost compared to the previous generation, it still uses less than 11 watts of power when idle. Small wonder, then, that it doesn’t just meet the ENERGY STAR requirements, it exceeds them — six times over. Mac mini is also made from highly recyclable aluminum, and with a built-in power supply, there’s no plastic housing. Even its package is designed to be mini, so it’s as efficient as possible to ship.
