Holiday bargain hunters on the lookout for a steep discount on Apple's budget-friendly Mac mini can save on every model equipped with 16GB of memory. Prices start at just $789 (up to $150 off) — and even AppleCare is on sale.
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).
Save on AppleCare too
The same APINSIDER coupon also knocks $20 off AppleCare, which can be tacked on to the systems in your shopping cart. With the coupon, the price of the extended protection plan drops to $79.
