Aside from the revised 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, Apple has also brought in the Mac mini to Malaysian shores. Not only is it available with Apple’s M2 silicone now, the compact desktop can be configured with a Pro-tier chip in the form of the M2 Pro chip for the first time too.
Here in Malaysia, the new Mac mini retails from RM2,499 for the base model with an M2 chip paired with 8GB unified memory and a 256GB SSD. If you want the more powerful M2 Pro configuration instead, it will set you back RM5,599, which gets you 16GB unified memory and 512GB of SSD storage.
Performance gain is expected with every new revision, and for the updated Mac mini, it can now deliver up to 50% faster performance than the previous model in image editing via Adobe Photoshop. As for the M2 Pro model – compared to the M1 Mac mini – it offers up to 4.2x faster ProRes transcode in Final Cut Pro, and up to 2.8x improved performance in Resident Evil Village.
The 2023 Mac mini is now available for purchase in Malaysia through Apple’s online store from RM2,499. Physical retail stores should have the compact desktop in stock soon as well.
