Amazon knocks $300 off Intel Mac mini, 44mm Apple Watch SE dips to $249

article thumbnail

Amazon has issued even more holiday deals on Apple devices this Dec. 15, with the e-commerce giant dropping the six-core Intel Mac mini with a 512GB SSD to $799. Shoppers can also save $60 on a 44mm Apple Watch SE, now just $249.99.

Intel Mac mini bargain

Shoppers on the hunt for a last-minute holiday gift can snag a $300 discount (deal expired) on Apple's Intel Mac mini with a 3.0GHz six-core Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory and a 512GB SSD. Now $799 thanks to a $50 instant rebate and a $249 in-cart discount, this deal beats the previous record low price on the upgraded model at Amazon by $175.

Whether you're looking for the absolute lowest price on a Mac mini period, which we covered a week ago, or prefer a more robust configuration with a Core i5 processor instead of the standard Core i3 in the Intel-based line, there are a number of perks to purchasing a last-gen Mac mini. Users can run up to three 4K displays between two Thunderbolt 3 ports and an HDMI port for extra screen real estate. User's can also elect to upgrade the Mac mini's RAM, with memory modules available for purchase at OWC.

At press time, units are expected to ship on Dec. 22, but deals fluctuate rapidly this time of year and the offer can change or end at any time. To grab the bonus discount, look for a green $249.01 savings message on the product page and verify the discount in-cart.
