Apple Mac mini (M2 Pro) review: the best mini computer ever


The M2 Pro makes the updated Mac mini the best compact computer ever made. And it's a fantastic value too.

Still very compact M2 Pro boosts the graphics Lots of storage options Stays amazingly quiet and cool Fantastic port selection Very affordable base configuration

Base configuration has slower SSD Not user upgradable

“The M2 Pro helps the Mac mini redefine compact computers.”

Apple Mac mini (2023, M2 Pro) Review


Classic Mac mini design ; Snappy performance in either configuration ; Extra Thunderbolt ports with M2 Pro model ; M2 Pro adds peak 8K-resolution, 240Hz-refresh-rate display options

Memory and storage are not upgradable (and upticks at time of purchase are pricey) ; True value pricing only on lowest-end model ; No accessories or peripherals included

With a new low price for the base model, and two peppy processor options, Apple's Mac mini offers a huge upgrade in capability while looking the same as ever. (Some good things don't need to change.)

Apple M2 Mac Mini 2023 Review: M2 and M2 Pro Chips Boost This Tiny Desktop


Better performance keeps the Mac Mini a top pick for podcasters and content creators.

Low starting price ; Wide range of configuration options ; Adds Wi-Fi 6E

Least expensive model has fewer ports, small storage ; RAM can only go up to 32GB ; Some component upgrades feel pricey

Apple M2 Mac Mini review: Faster, cheaper, better


Apple's long-awaited addition of second-generation M2 chips to its Mac Mini line, along with a $100 price drop, makes a solid case for this new model being the computer to buy.

The below image best sums up why the M2 Mac Mini is such an easy recommendation. In the background is a "small form factor" PC I built myself a couple of years ago. In the foreground is the M2 Mac Mini. The PC I built cost around $1,500 at the time,...

Mac Pro M2 review - Buy the Mac Studio instead


Apple has finally introduced its Apple Silicon Mac Pro. It is still a performance powerhouse, but most "Pro" users should get a Mac Studio instead.

Mac mini (M2 Pro, 2023) review: small but very, very mighty


The new Mac mini gives you unbelievable power, at an even more unbelievable price.

Blisteringly-fast performance ; Great value ; Classic design

Still can’t use eGPUs

Packing an incredible amount of power, at a brilliant price, the new Mac mini (M2, 2023) remains one of, if not the, best small form factor PCs money can buy.

Mac mini M2 review: More power for less


The Apple Mac mini M2 has arrived, and after putting an upgraded model with an M2 Pro through its paces we can't help but be impressed by how cheap and powerful this pint-sized PC can be.

with M1 Ultra or an old-fashioned Mac Pro, both of those options will cost you several thousand dollars more than a fully upgraded Mac mini M2 Pro. They're great PCs for those that need (and can afford) them, but for most of us the new Mac mini M2...
