Up to 2x faster processors. Up to 2x faster everything.
The latest dual-core Intel Core i5 processors come as standard on Mac mini. Choose a 2.3GHz or 2.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i5, or configure Mac mini with an even faster 2.7GHz Intel Core i7. With up to 2x the performance of the previous generation, Mac mini keeps up with computers twice its size.1
When you’re using processor-intensive applications, Turbo Boost 2.0 increases the clock speed up to 3.4GHz. Hyper-Threading lets each core run two threads, so OS X multitasks even more efficiently. And an integrated memory controller connects fast 1333MHz memory directly to the processor, so it gets straight to work on your data. In short, Mac mini is a little box of vroom.
Up to 2x faster graphics. Game on.
The 2.5GHz Mac mini features a discrete AMD Radeon HD graphics processor with 256MB of GDDR5 memory. That brings up to twice the power to graphics-intensive applications and gives you a super-responsive gaming experience.2 The Intel HD Graphics processor in the 2.3GHz Mac mini delivers plenty of power for everyday tasks like managing photos and editing HD video.
Thunderbolt. The fastest, most versatile I/O in any desktop. Of any size.
The new Thunderbolt technology in Mac mini is phenomenally fast. It features two 10-Gbps channels for data transfer. That’s up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0. But beyond speed, Thunderbolt technology gives you unprecedented expansion capabilities. You can daisy-chain as many as six Thunderbolt peripherals, including the new Apple Thunderbolt Display. And since Thunderbolt is based on DisplayPort technology, your Mini DisplayPort devices plug straight in too.

A built-in SDXC card slot makes it easy to grab all those photos and videos from your digital cameras. And four USB 2.0 ports and a FireWire 800 port let you plug in your keyboard, mouse, iPod, iPhone, iPad, digital camera, DV camcorder, external hard drive, printer and just about any other device you use.
• Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
The latest 802.11n wireless technology is built into every Mac mini.3 It automatically connects to your Wi-Fi network, so you can get straight down to surfing the web, printing and streaming your music wirelessly.

Bring your own display, keyboard, mouse and HDTV. They plug straight in.
• Use what you’ve got.
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 films and TV programmes from iTunes, surfing the web and flipping through your photo library, all in brilliant HD. There’s also a handy control that lets you adjust the output on Mac mini to fill even the biggest HDTV screen. 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.
Storage and memory. Make it as big as you need it to be.
• Start with 500GB of storage. And take it from there.
Mac mini comes with a 500GB hard drive or an optional 750GB hard drive.4 So you can pack in your photo libraries, films, music, files and more, more, more. Choose the 256GB solid-state drive for your 2.5GHz Mac mini, and it will be even more responsive, boot up even faster and launch applications in no time. Need to burn discs? The external USB-based MacBook Air SuperDrive does the job for just £66.
• Add memory with a twist.
Mac mini comes with 2GB or 4GB of fast 1333MHz DDR3 memory. And thanks to a removable bottom panel, it’s easy to add more. Just give it a twist, and you’re in.
