With fourth-generation Intel Core processors, Mac mini keeps up with computers twice its size. You can choose a 1.4GHz, to 2.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5. Or go for an even more powerful 3.0GHz dual-core Intel Core i7.
When you’re using processor-intensive applications, Turbo Boost 2.0 increases the clock speed up to 3.5GHz. Hyper-Threading lets each core run two threads, so OS X multitasks even more efficiently. And an integrated memory controller connects fast 1600MHz memory directly to the processor, so it gets straight to work on your data. In short, Mac mini is a little box of vroom.
The 1TB Fusion Drive combines a 1TB hard drive with amazingly quick PCIe-based flash storage.2 Fusion Drive automatically and intelligently manages your data so that frequently used apps, documents, photos and other files stay on the faster flash storage, while infrequently used items move to the hard drive. You’ll enjoy shorter boot times and, as the system learns how you work, you’ll see faster application launches and quicker file access. Best of all, you don’t have to do a thing to make it happen.
You can also choose a 500GB or a 1TB hard drive or even a 2TB Fusion Drive.2 Or configure your Mac mini with up to 1TB of flash storage in a solid-state drive for the fastest performance. Flash storage delivers nearly nine times the performance of a disk drive — speed you’ll notice when you boot up your Mac mini, launch an app or browse your photo library.
Thunderbolt 2 technology in Mac mini is phenomenally fast. The two Thunderbolt 2 ports on Mac mini feature dual 20-Gbps channels for data transfer. That’s up to four times faster than USB 3. But beyond speed, Thunderbolt gives you unprecedented expansion capabilities. You can daisy-chain as many as six Thunderbolt devices to a single port. And since Thunderbolt is based on DisplayPort technology, Mini DisplayPort devices like the Apple LED Cinema Display plug straight in too.
