Apple Removes M1 Mac Mini and Intel Mac Mini From Lineup

Apple has stopped offering Intel-powered Mac mini models following the launch of new Apple silicon models featuring its new M2 and M2 Pro chips.

Up until today, Apple continued to sell a high-end ‌Mac mini‌ with a 3.0GHz 6-core 8th-generation Intel core i5 chip, 8GB RAM, Intel UHD Graphics 630, and 512GB SSD. Pricing started from $1,099.

That base model has now made way for a ‌Mac mini‌ with a 10-Core Apple M2 Pro processor with a 16-Core GPU, 16GB of unified memory, and 512GB of storage. Pricing starts from $1,299.

The Mac Pro is now the only Intel-powered machine that Apple sells, as the company continues with its transition to Apple silicon.

Apple has also stopped listing ‌Mac mini‌ models equipped with its M1 processor, having now replaced its lineup with M2-powered machines.

The new ‌Mac mini‌ with ‌M2‌ and ‌M2‌ Pro are available for pre-order today and will begin shipping next Tuesday, January 24.

For enterprise customers, this is a pretty big deal:

* You can no longer rely on Bootcamp or virtualization software like Parallels to run Windows and Mac on a Mac host anymore.
* you will now have to purchase a Windows box and a Mac Mini or a similar Apple device if you need to use macOS and Windows.

The Bootcamp-era is now over, folks!

Microsoft offers a Windows version that runs on ARM CPU's, although not yet on Apple silicon ARM CPU's. They also have an ARM CPU equipped developer's kit in a Mac Mini form-factor, which can be seen in a YT video titled "Microsoft Made an Arm-based Mac mini" authored by "Snazzy Labs". Given enough customer demand, Microsoft may/should eventually be able to offer a Windows for ARM version that can return to Boot Camp compatibility with Apple silicon Macs.
