The Apple Mac mini 2.3GHz Intel Quad Core i7 4GB Ram + 1TB Hard Drive features the third-generation Intel Core processors, faster integrated graphics, Thunderbolt and plenty of ports. With third-generation Intel Core processors, Mac mini keeps up with computers twice its size. Intel HD Graphics 4000 delivers up to 65% more pixel-pushing performance than the previous generation of integrated graphics. The Mac mini uses Thunderbolt technology which is 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0. But beyond speed, Thunderbolt gives you unprecedented expansion capabilities. You can daisy-chain as many as six Thunderbolt devices, including two Apple Thunderbolt Displays to a single port.

Processors up to 2x faster. Done and done.
When you’re using processor-intensive applications, Turbo Boost 2.0 increases the clock speed up to 3.6GHz. Hyper-Threading lets each core run two threads, so OS X multitasks even more efficiently. And an integrated memory controller connects fast 1600MHz memory directly to the processor, so it gets straight to work on your data. In short, Mac mini is a little box of vroom.
With third-generation Intel Core processors, Mac mini keeps up with computers twice its size. You can choose a 2.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i5. Or go for an even more powerful 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 for up to twice the performance of the previous-generation dual-core Mac mini.*1
Intel HD Graphics 4000. It’ll really get things moving.
Intel HD Graphics 4000 delivers up to 65 per cent more pixel-pushing performance than the previous generation of integrated graphics.*2 So the video you watch and the games you play are smoother and more responsive. Flipping through photo albums is a breeze. And you’ve got all the power you need to edit your HD video into a film worthy of a red carpet premiere.
Storage and memory. Make it big. And fast.
Up to 1TB hard drive.
Mac mini comes as standard with either a 500GB or 1TB 5400-rpm hard drive.*3 So you can pack in your photo libraries, films, music, files and more, more, more.
Up to 256GB of flash storage.
You can configure your Mac mini with up to 256GB of flash storage in a solid-state drive instead of a traditional hard drive. Flash storage delivers nearly five times the performance of a disk drive*4 — speed you’ll notice when you boot your Mac mini, launch an app or browse your photo library.
Introducing Fusion Drive.
Mac mini also offers a breakthrough storage option, called Fusion Drive, which combines a 1TB hard drive with high-performance flash storage — 128GB worth. Fusion Drive automatically and intelligently manages your data so that frequently used apps, documents, photos and other files stay on the faster flash storage, while infrequently used items move to the hard drive. You’ll enjoy shorter boot times, and as the system learns how you work, you’ll see faster application launches and quicker file access. Best of all, you don’t have to do a thing to make it happen.
Add memory with a twist.
Mac mini comes with 4GB of fast 1600MHz DDR3 memory. And thanks to a removable bottom panel, it’s easy to add more. Just give it a twist, and you’re in. Pop your new memory into the SO-DIMM slot, and you’re out. Or you can configure your Mac mini with up to 16GB of memory from the start at the Apple Online Store.
Thunderbolt. The fastest, most versatile I/O in any desktop. Of any size.
Thunderbolt technology in Mac mini is phenomenally fast. It features two 10-Gbps channels for data transfer. That’s up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2. But beyond speed, Thunderbolt gives you unprecedented expansion capabilities. You can daisy-chain as many as six Thunderbolt devices — including two Apple Thunderbolt Displays — to a single port. And since Thunderbolt is based on DisplayPort technology, Mini DisplayPort devices like the Apple LED Cinema Display plug straight in too.
USB 3, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. You’re very well connected.
Plenty of ports make it ready for anything.
As powerful as Thunderbolt is, it’s just one of your options. If you have a third-party display, for instance, you can use the HDMI port and the HDMI to DVI Adapter that comes with Mac mini to connect it. You can even connect two displays to see more of your photos, films and documents at the same time. A built-in SDXC card slot makes it easy to import those photos and videos from your digital camera, and the FireWire 800 port works with a wide array of storage, audio and video devices.
With USB 3 built into Mac mini, you can connect your external hard drive and transfer large files in seconds instead of minutes. Every Mac mini comes with four USB 3 ports — with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2 — and you can connect all your USB-compatible devices, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod or digital camera.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The latest 802.11n wireless technology is built into every Mac mini.*6 It automatically locates your Wi-Fi network, so you can connect and start surfing the web, printing and streaming your music wirelessly. Bluetooth wireless technology is also built in, so you can connect accessories such as a wireless keyboard and mouse.
