Save $100
on a 2020 Mac Mini M1 with a 512GB SSD, 8GB RAM and Apple's stunning 8-core M1 chip. It may be small, but this little computer packs a serious punch.

The Mac Mini isn't an all-in-one computer like an iMac - you'll still need to add your own monitor, but the computer itself is tiny at 197 x 197 x 36mm, so should fit on any desk.

This latest Mac Mini M1 differs from previous Minis by using Apple's own processor designed for computers. It's a similar construction to an iPhone/iPad processor, but beefed up for desktop computing. And boy, has Apple done a good job. The ultra-efficient M1 processor can outperform many current high-end Intel Core-series processors.

This B&H offer is for the base 8GB Mac Mini, but this should still be enough RAM for lighter image editing sessions or working with Full HD video.

There is a limited supply at this bargain price so don't wait around – the offer won't be on forever.
