Apple Mac mini – Core i7 2.3 GHz – 4 GB RAM – 1 TB HDD – Intel HD Graphics 4000 – OS X 10.12 Sierra
With third-generation Intel Core processors, Mac mini keeps up with computers twice its size. 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 right to work on your data. In short, Mac mini is a little box of vroom. Intel HD Graphics 4000 delivers up to 65 percent more pixel-pushing performance than the previous generation of integrated graphics. 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. Mac mini comes standard with either a 500GB or 1TB 5400-rpm hard drive. So you can pack in your photo libraries, movies, music, files, and more.
