Apple Mac mini (M1, 2020) Review 2021

Two-minute review

The Mac Mini 2020 refresh gives the smallest Mac a very welcome and much-needed update. And, with all the claims Apple has set forth, promising three times faster CPU performance and six times faster graphical performance compared to the previous Mini, the newest model comes with some high expectations.

The reason for these bold promises has to do with Apple’s new M1 system on a chip (SoC). Not only is the M1 chip debuting on the Mac Mini 2020 but on the new MacBook Air (M1, 2020), and the new MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1, 2020) laptops as well. This chip lets the new Mini play intensive games, render complicated Final Cut Pro projects much quicker, and compile Xcode up to three times faster than the last Mini. And, it does so while keeping its slim design.
