Record low Mac mini price

The Late 2018 Mac mini has a lot of perks for those looking for the absolute lowest price on a handy desktop that's not only portable, but looks great in the Space Gray finish. Priced at $549.99 with this shopping link and coupon code APINSIDER, the bonus $100 promo code discount is on top of a $150 markdown already in place at Adorama for the Intel quad-core Core i3 model with 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.

Wonder if the Late 2018 Mac mini is for you? Whether you're a student looking for a budget-friendly Mac or someone looking to upgrade the Mac mini's RAM, this price point offers the steepest discount on a closeout model that supports up to three 4K displays between two Thunderbolt 3 ports and an HDMI port for extra screen real estate.

Have a 5K display? The 2018 Mac mini supports one 5K display via Thunderbolt 3 and one 4K display via HDMI 2.0. Compared to the M1 Mac mini, which can simultaneously supports up to two displays, the Intel model offers users additional screen real estate if you opt for three 4K monitors.
