The Mac Mini has been dubbed the "ugly duckling" of Apple's Mac lineup.

It is frequently disregarded, assigned to the "niche" category and seen as only appropriate for developers and data centres since it lacks the elegant sophistication of the iMac or the portable beauty of the MacBook.

However, now that it features Apple's M1 chip, ignoring it is the last thing you want to do.

On the surface, it may resemble the previous-generation Mac Mini, but on the inside, it is nothing short of a revolution.

The Mac Mini is no longer an afterthought if you want a desktop computer and already have all of the necessary peripherals.

It's still niche, but it's crashing at the descriptor's walls, poised to explode.

By far Apple's smallest desktop Mac is the Mac Mini. This gadget may easily fit on your desk or slide under a display, measuring 7.7 inches wide and 1.4 inches height from top to bottom. It has the same footprint as the preceding Mac Mini with Intel processor.

The build quality is fantastic, as we have come to expect from Apple gear.

The entire item is substantial and hefty, with no flexing or bending visible.

The Mac Mini's price-to-performance ratio is incredible, and if you're looking for a desktop rather than a laptop, it should be at the top of your list. ALSO READ : Kingdom Hearts 4 announced at the Anniversary Event.
