Apple Mac Mini

The Mac Mini is a small desktop computer manufactured by Apple Inc.  Like earlier Mini-ITX PC designs, it is 7.7 inches (200 mm) square and 1.4 inches (36 mm) tall.  It weighs 2.7 pounds (1.2 kg).  Models pre-2010 used an external power supply.

The Mac Mini was the first consumer level Macintosh desktop to ship without a display, keyboard, or mouse since Apple’s success following the release of the iMac, with Apple marketing it as BYODKM (Bring Your Own Display, Keyboard, and Mouse).  The primary intended market for the Mac Mini was users switching from a traditional Windows PC to a Mac who might already own a compatible display, keyboard and mouse, although these could be easily purchased if needed.
