Apple’s M1 processor delivers some of the best single-core performance of any chip currently available for laptop or desktop computers, and while there are high-end chips that score higher in multi-core benchmarks, they also tend to consume a lot more power than Apple’s energy-efficient processors.

One of the cheapest ways to get your hands on a computer with an Apple M1 processor is to pick up a 2020 Mac Mini. And now it’s even cheaper than usual to do that – Amazon is selling the little desktop computer for up to $150 off.

Here are some of the day’ best deals.

  1. I would probably consider buying an M1 powered Mac Mini for that price, but the only thing holding me back is that the M1 has really poor support for displays. I have a Macbook Air M1, and it’s been somewhat disappointing. More so than my past Macbooks.

    The M1 can only support a single display. Also, it doesn’t have good support for some resolutions or refresh rates. My monitor’s native resolution (2560×1080) isn’t supported above 60hz. Also my monitor’s USB-C input isn’t supported because the M1 doesn’t support Displayport Alt-mode.

    I’m hoping the M1X or M2 will do better, but since Apple never discusses this kind of stuff in their manuals or support documents, it’s going to be slow and painful to wait for online discussions to confirm this sort of thing.

    1. My Intel Core i3 Mac mini is buggy with multiple monitors and it can be tricky to find exact adapters and cables that work. It works most of the time, but every once in a while there are issues. Not good news about the M1 being worse.

      1. MacOS in general is awful for external monitors. I’ve been dealing with an issue for years where changing the monitor’s Colour Profile in System Preferences results in the OS forgetting the monitor’s orientation. So when I rotate my monitor 90-degrees to use it in Portrait mode, it reverts to landscape every time the screen goes to sleep.

        I dislike MacOS for many reasons, but I’d still totally buy a Mac Mini for my family to use.
