New to Macs? Or simply want to replace your current one? If you want to try one out but don't have a lot of money to spend on it, you might be interested in the new Apple Mac mini MGEN2LL/A. It is among the least inexpensive OS X computers, yet offers the same level of performance as Macs that cost a lot more.

This little machine is rated highly by reviewers, in terms of performance, design and features. It has a nice unibody aluminum design and packs a lot of power in its 7.7-inch square frame. All you have to do is connect it to a display, mouse and keyboard to get things going. Why use a giant standard PC tower when you can just use a mini one that won't take up nearly as much space?

Equipped with 4th-generation Intel Core processors, the mini keeps up with PCs twice its size. Customization options include a dual-core 1.4-GHz, 2.6-GHz, or 2.80-GHz processors. You could also upgrade to a dual-core i7 3.0-GHz model if you want the most power and performance possible.

For memory, 8GB of installed RAM is included (1600-MHz) with LPDDR3 SDRAM technology. Storage comes in the form of an HDD SATA (5400-RPM) with 1TB capacity.

Apple Mac mini MGEN2LL/A Display Ports

The integrated graphics controller supports up to two monitors. You can expect quality image and video rendering, thanks to the Intel Iris graphics technology. While a monitor is not included with the purchase of the Apple Mac mini MGEN2LL/A, it comes with a DisplayPort and HDMI port, which allows you to connect it to your HDTV or just about any other type of display.

In addition to HDMI, there are four USB 3.0 ports, Thunderbolt 2 technology, 1 audio line-in port, 1 headphone port, and LAN. The card reader supports flash memory such as SD, SDXC, and SDHC cards.

Just how little is this “mini” Mac? Its dimensions in inches are 7.8×7.8×1.4 (WDH). It weighs just 2.65-lbs. If you ever want to take it to another room in the house it will be easy to do so. Power is provided through the 85-Watt power supply the mini comes included with.

The features it comes bundled with aren't just hardware: it comes with plenty of essential software as well. These programs include Apple's version of the Microsoft Office suite: Keynote, Numbers and Pages, as well as all of the Apple apps such as iTunes.

In summary, the Apple Mac mini MGEN2LL/A is proof that big things really do come in small packages. It's nice to look at, small, and quiet. It gives you a good computing experience without being in the way.

Since Apple is one of the largest brands of electronics in the world, there are always ways to save on its products. This mini MAC is already inexpensive as it is, but with an Apple Mac mini MGEN2LL/A discount or promo code, you can save even more.
