A History of Mac Mini

The Mac mini is a desktop computer produced by Apple that first came out in 2005. There have been many revisions over the years that have increased the ability of the Mac mini, but it is basically a desktop computer for budget minded people. It comes with no monitor, which allows the user to purchase any monitor that they wish to use with it.

For the 1st generation Mac mini, released in 2005, the computer was just two inches tall by 6.5 inches wide and deep. Apple’s goal was that PC owners looking to replace their computers could get the Mac mini while using their old PC monitors, which would make the cost less for the consumer.

• In production from 2005 to 2006
• Resolution: 24 bit
• RAM: 256 MB expandable up to 1 GB
• Hard drive options: from 40 or 80 GB

In 2006, Apple released the updated Mac mini. This one came with twice the RAM as the first one. It was still small and light, weighing less than three pounds.

• In production during 2006
• Resolution: 24 bit
• Memory options start at 512, expandable up to 2 GB
• Hard drive options: either 60 or 80 GB

In the middle of 2007, the next design Mac mini came out with Intel Core 2 Duo processors. This model was discontinued in 2009.

• In production from the middle of 2007 to 2009
• Max Resolution: 24 bit
• Memory options start at 1 GB, expandable to 4 GB

The year 2009 brought about a change. The Mac mini received its long overdue refresh. The processor speed stayed the same, but there was a better graphics chipset and a Mini Display Port. This was the first Mac Mini to support dual monitors.

• Production started in 2009
• Max Resolution: 24 bit
• Memory options start at 1 GB and maxed out at 4 GB

In 2010, the Mac mini’s design changed slightly becoming wider and shorter than previous Mac minis.

• Max Resolution: 1920x 1200 via HDMI, 2560x 1600 via Thunderbolt
