Limited-time Mac mini special

Holiday deals are in effect exclusively for AppleInsider readers, knocking $50 to $150 off every model with coupon code APINSIDER at Apple Authorized Reseller Adorama. Need help with the coupon? Step-by-step activation instructions can be found here.

Equipped with Apple's M1 chip, the current Mac mini makes a great gift for those looking to enter the Apple ecosystem, as well as students and families wanting a budget-friendly option for home, school or work.

With the coupon savings, you can pick up a Mac mini for as low as $655. We recommend upgrading to 16GB of memory, though, to help future proof your purchase, since steep discounts are in effect on the upgraded models, driving the price of the M1, 16GB, 256GB model down to $789 ($110 off retail).

Those needing additional storage can snag the M1, 16GB, 512GB spec for $949 with the code, a discount of $150 off retail. Both options are in stock and ready to ship.

  • Mac mini (M1, 16GB, 256GB): $789* ($120 off)
  • Mac mini (M1, 16GB, 512GB): $949* ($150 off)
