Refurbished M1 Mac Mini With 10Gb Ethernet Now Available

Refurbished M1 Mac mini models with a 10Gb ethernet port are now available from the Apple Store, following the launch of the $100 build-to-order option in April.

The refurbished units were first spotted by Paul Haddad on Twitter. There are currently a range of refurbished ‌M1‌ ‌Mac mini‌ configurations with 10Gb ethernet available with different amounts of storage, although stock appears to be selling out quickly. Going forward, stock will fluctuate based on which machines customers are sending back to Apple for repairs and returns.

Spot checks show that the refurbished ‌M1‌ models with 10Gb ethernet are now available in multiple regions, including the United States, Canada, France, and Japan.

When buying the ‌M1‌ ‌Mac mini‌ new, customers have to use a build-to-order configuration to upgrade from standard Gigabit ethernet to 10Gb ethernet for an additional $100. A refurbished ‌M1‌ ‌Mac mini‌ with 16GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and 10Gb ethernet sells for $849, which is a $150 saving on the same machine if bought new.

Apple's refurbished ‌‌M1‌‌ Mac minis are sold with the same one-year warranty offered with a new ‌‌Mac mini‌, and they come with all manuals and accessories. Apple uses a rigorous testing, repair, repackaging, and cleaning process to ensure refurbished devices are identical to new devices.

Apple's refurbs are a great deal. I have purchased about 10-12 refurbs for our company over the past 5 or 6 years - Mac Pros, iMacs and MacBook Pros. I've never been let down. You're essentially getting a brand new product and full warranty. It's a pretty good deal.

So tempted to grab the 2TB SSD model, but the next iteration will be more powerful, and worth the wait.

With the prices of SSD so high and this being a desktop machine, I would get a basic amount of internal SSD space, like 1TB, for system and documents and then put a 2TB external SSD on it for media and such.

I assume this 10Gbps is unable to fallback to 2.5Gbps right? Believe that was always one of the gotchyas with networking.

Lots of affordable NAS's now with 2.5Gbps ports, but the 10Gbps ones are very pricey.
usually any with 10Gbps ethernet can do 1, 2.5, 5 and 10Gbps.

and according to Apple :
Configurable to 10Gb Ethernet (Nbase-T Ethernet with support for 1Gb, 2.5Gb, 5Gb and 10Gb Ethernet using RJ-45 connector)

We'll see - I've always been a MBP/iMac guy, and have always regarded Mini's as lower-end. Curious how many cores and RAM Apple chooses to pack into gen2.
What I mean is every update is more powerful than what it is replacing. Better... who knows... but you can bank on more powerful. The individual question everyone needs to ask is if the difference was worth the wait for them, and only time can tell. Hope the wait is fruitful for you.
