Mac mini

The smallest Mac desktop computer. The mini is a full-fledged Mac in an 8x8" case 1.5 inches thick. Introduced in 2005 with PowerPC G4 processors, Intel-based units came out the following year. Like all desktop computers, a separate monitor, keyboard and mouse are required, which can be Apple devices or the same products used on PCs. Storage in the newer minis is solid state or hybrid (see Fusion Drive). See Macintosh models and Macintosh.
