New Title: M2 Mac mini Price Hits Record Low of $479

While the tech community eagerly awaits any hardware announcements from Apple at the Worldwide Developers Conference, there seems to be a significant price drop for the M2 Mac mini. Priced at $479, this represents a $120 discount from the original price of $599. It is speculated that this price drop could be a move to clear out current stock in anticipation of new models.

The base M2 Mac mini features eight CPU cores with a speed of 3.2 GHz, 10 GPU cores in its M2 chipset, 8GB of unified memory, and 256GB of onboard storage. For those looking for more storage, the 512GB model is available at $699 with an additional discount. In terms of connectivity, the M2 Mac mini offers dual Thunderbolt 4 ports, USB-A ports, HDMI port, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3, gigabit ethernet support, and a headphone jack. While additional peripherals such as a mouse, keyboard, and monitor are needed, the M2 Mac mini provides a solid desktop experience at an affordable price point.

For users seeking more power, the M2 Pro Mac mini is available at a discounted price of $1,150 with a coupon offer. Despite its positive attributes such as performance, design, quiet operation, and array of ports, upgrading beyond the base model can be costly. Additionally, some users may find the placement of ports at the back inconvenient.
