Apple updated the Mac mini back in January, introducing the M2 and M2 Pro chips into the computer. We started tracking this all-time low price tag around springtime and as of now only B&H Photo is offering the sale.

B&H Photo also has the 512GB M2 Pro Mac mini for $1,149.00, down from $1,299.00. This one is a second-best price on the Mac Mini, but it's been a few months since we last tracked a record low price on the model so it's still a solid price for anyone in the market for the M2 Pro model.

256gb storage for a desktop computer is madness. It's bad enough on laptops but that has the excuse of "being thina and light" (because another 256 gb card is so thick and heavy, after all ?) but there's zero reason for the base storage price of all of Apple's computers to not start at 512gb other than greed.

$499 was the price point that the Mac mini was intended to sell at. Steve Jobs said so when he introduced it. It was likely meant, in part, for lower-income people who couldn't afford any other Mac to be able to afford. They could, as Jobs said, "BYODKM" ("Bring your own display, keyboard, and mouse") from their old Windows PC and use it with the Mac mini.

Tim Cook doesn't give a damn about lower income people, so of course he raised the prices on the Mac mini.
When it comes to Tim Cook you’re dead wrong:

For those of you that think this is funny, let me know how much you’ve personally doing or given to help poor children… P.S. Have you even bothered to read those articles? ??

Perhaps a reason we are seeing so many sales from third parties on only base configs is that Apple over-manufactured base configs and demand is not there. Rather than dump them at discounts associated with Apple directly, they are dumping them through third parties.

If so, the lesson Apple could learn is that the masses have developed enough understanding to agree with you and thus wants more than 256GB and hopefully 8GB RAM... which MIGHT lead to Apple upping the minimums in the next generation.

Or one can hope anyway. ;)
