The Mac mini is a desktop computer made by Apple. What sets the Mac mini apart from other Apple computers is that it comes without a display, keyboard, and mouse. This allows the user to choose the devices they want. As Apple likes to say, it’s “BYODKM” (Bring Your Own Display, Keyboard, and Mouse). The goal of the Mac mini is to create a compact and portable desktop computer.

The Mac mini has been around since 2005 and was launched at the same time as the iPod Shuffle. Yet, as with everything Apple does, its design and features have changed a lot since then.
The first Mac mini had a PowerPC processor. A year later, after the 1st generation of the Mac mini, in 2006, Apple introduced the second generation with the same design, but with the Intel Core processor, as well as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support.
The third-generation Mac mini released in June 2010 consisted of a unibody aluminum enclosure and an HDMI port. A Thunderbolt port and Intel Core i5 and i7 processors were added to later versions of this Mac.
The fourth generation introduced in October 2018 is still sold today and is the last to feature an Intel processor. This generation includes a darker space gray finish, has an SSD and a USB-C port. It’s the first Mac mini made from 100% recycled aluminum.
In November 2020, Apple introduced the fifth generation model based on the Apple Silicon processor. It comes with 16GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD storage, and two USB-C ports.
