Mac mini 1.4GHz i5 Dual Core 4GB/500GB/Intel HD 5000

Punches way above its weight.
Mac mini features fourth-generation Intel Core processors, faster integrated graphics, Thunderbolt 2, next-generation Wi-Fi, and plenty of ports. Everything you expect from a Mac. And more.

Fourth-generation Intel Core processors. The little engine that does.
With fourth-generation Intel Core processors, Mac mini keeps up with computers twice its size. You can choose a 1.4GHz, 2.6GHz, or 2.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5. Or go for an even more powerful 3.0GHz dual-core Intel Core i7.

When you’re using processor-intensive applications, Turbo Boost 2.0 increases the clock speed up to 3.5GHz. Hyper-Threading lets each core run two threads, so OS X multitasks even more efficiently. And an integrated memory controller connects fast 1600MHz memory directly to the processor, so it gets right to work on your data. In short, Mac mini is a little box of vroom.

Intel Iris Graphics and HD Graphics 5000. Every pixel comes alive.
Intel Iris Graphics and Intel HD Graphics 5000 deliver up to 90 percent more pixel-pushing performance than the previous generation of integrated graphics.1 So the video you watch and the games you play are smoother and more responsive. Flipping through photo albums is a breeze. And now you’ve got all the power you need to edit your HD video into a film worthy of a red carpet premiere.

  • Mac mini Graphics Performance
  • Up to 90% faster than previous‑generation Mac mini.

Storage. Make it big. And fast.
Fusion Drive. A high capacity for intelligence.
Standard on the $999 model and a configurable option on the others, Fusion Drive combines a 1TB hard drive with amazingly quick PCIe-based flash storage.2 Fusion Drive automatically and intelligently manages your data so that frequently used apps, documents, photos, and other files stay on the faster flash storage, while infrequently used items move to the hard drive. You’ll enjoy shorter boot times and, as the system learns how you work, you’ll see faster application launches and quicker file access. Best of all, you don’t have to do a thing to make it happen.

You can also choose a 500GB or 1TB hard drive. Or configure your Mac mini with up to 1TB of flash storage in a solid-state drive for the fastest performance. Flash storage delivers nearly nine times the performance of a disk drive3 — speed you’ll notice when you boot your Mac mini, launch an app, or browse your photo library.

  • Fusion Drive Performance
  • Up to 4x faster than 5400-rpm 2.5-inch hard drive.

Thunderbolt 2. The fastest, most versatile I/O in any desktop. Of any size.
Thunderbolt 2 technology in Mac mini is phenomenally fast. The two Thunderbolt 2 ports on Mac mini feature dual 20-Gbps channels for data transfer. That’s up to four times faster than USB 3. But beyond speed, Thunderbolt gives you unprecedented expansion capabilities. You can daisy-chain as many as six Thunderbolt devices to a single port. And since Thunderbolt is based on DisplayPort technology, Mini DisplayPort devices like the Apple LED Cinema Display plug right in, too.

USB 3, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. You’re very well connected.
Plenty of ports make it ready for anything.
As powerful as Thunderbolt 2 is, it’s just one of your options. If you have a third-party display, you can use the HDMI port to connect it. You can connect two displays to see more of your photos, movies, and documents at the same time. And a built-in SDXC card slot makes it easy to import those photos and videos from your digital camera.

No screen is too big.
It’s easy to connect Mac mini to the biggest screen in the house — your HDTV — courtesy of a built-in HDMI port. All it takes is one HDMI cable to start enjoying movies and TV shows from iTunes, surfing the web, and flipping through your photo library, all in brilliant HD. And when you just want to listen to music, you can play your entire iTunes collection through your home entertainment center, or stream it to a set of speakers in any room via an AirPort Express Base Station.
