Happy for all the Mac mini folks, this is a great upgrade and great options available. I hope the new iMac later in the year gets similar treatment.

Did the prices drop on the 8/256 and 8/512 mini? I swore a 16/512 model was $1099 for the M1. Configures as $999 with the M2. and for $300 you can get an M2 Pro with 2 additional thunderbolt ports. Not bad.
