There isn’t a better time to pick up an Intel Mac mini, with $250 knocked off two Core i7 models of the pint-sized Mac for 24 hours only ahead of the holidays.
Intel Mac mini deal
While the M1-equipped Mac mini is getting all of the attention, there are still good reasons to acquire the Intel-based models. At this early stage in the processor transition, sticking with Intel will ensure you will immediately be able to run the apps you want, without worrying if it will be affected by Rosetta 2 translation or won’t be ported over by the developer at all.
There’s also a few other benefits, such as being able to run Windows straight away, or having the option to run three monitors from the Mac mini, instead of just two on the M1 version (without the use of special adapters).
A promotion through B&H is offering $250 off two Mac mini models, each equipped with the 3.2GHz six-core Core i7 processor and priced at $1,399. One model has 16GB of memory and 512GB of storage, while the other has 8GB of memory and 1TB of storage.
The discount is provided only via AppleInsider’s special pricing links in this post, and through the Intel Mac mini Price Guide, and only through a desktop or notebook browser, not mobile versions. Free expedited shipping is offered within the contiguous U.S., so there won’t be long to wait for the order to come through.
