The Mac Mini is a fantastic machine by Apple that I think a lot of people overlook. It’s Apple’s entry-level desktop computer, one of the very few devices that does not have a screen attach to it, but it packs a lot of power for what I believe is a very fair price (for an Apple Product).

Recently, Apple updated the device with their most recent chips, the M2 and the M2 Pro. Now, Apple updated the Mac Mini with M2, not a big surprise. They do something like this every year, and their last version had the M1, so it was something that was expected.

However, seeing a Mac Mini with M2 Pro, that is something quite different for Apple to do. And this does change the game quite a bit.

Earlier in the year, Apple released the Mac Studio, a device with crazy amount of power that was made for serious creative work and demanding tasks. The Mac Studio was fantastic, and even now its hard to find a computer that can come close to its performance.

However, now that the Mac Mini has M2 Pro, you are getting an insane amount of value and capability in a very small machine for fantastic price as well.

The M2 Pro could easily be used for large project, such as video editing, photo editing, animation, even 3D rendering. Personally, I have the MacBook Pro with M1 Pro, and as a Photographer…
