by birtanpublished on March 21, 2021

Hey everyone Digital David here today in this video I'm gonna be unboxing and reviewing the Apple Mac Mini I did purchase this product myself and any opinion expressed in this video is strictly my own that being said if you're interested in this product you want to find out more about it the link to it will be in my video description below please go ahead check it out and do your shopping from there you can see outcomes packaged to in a nice and simple retail box I really have always liked apples product packaging we can learn about the product on the back side so we can see the model number in the

Specs this is a late 2018 Mac Mini with Intel's a 3/8 gen processor giving us 4 cores at 3.6 gigahertz with 8 gigabytes of ddr4 ram and 128 gigabyte SSD now that's on the small end this is the base specs for the Mac Mini and you can definitely tec inspect them out I'd like to see like 256 gigabytes as the smallest capacity 128 gigs is just not that much space but there's a bunch of i/o on here so we can plug in external drives and even an external GPU if we want I actually bought this product on Facebook marketplace and decided to do this video because the seller included

It in its retail box and packaging let me know in the comments section below if you have a Mac which year and how much did you pay for it I can't wait to hear from you guys also let me know what you think about this this is the base model again and it's on the weaker side of the specs at least compared to PC and building your own but this is the cheapest barrier of entry into the Apple Mac OS world and I need to have that for some future videos I'll be doing on my channel I review a software called Mac paw on my channel that helps clean your Mac it's a really

Helpful software and I need a Mac to showcase it properly so be sure to check out that video on my channel have a code to that in my video description below – if you're interested in cleaning your Mac so that being said got it on Facebook marketplace why I picked this specific Mac verse all the other Mac's out there is because I needed 4k support so looking at like a 2015 used iMac and then 2016 obviously anything newer that supported 4k or the 2018 late 2018 Mac minis that have 4k resolution that's supported so I landed on this one and I

Got a great deal on it I paid five hundred and sixty five dollars for this Mac so I'm really excited to open up and see the package contents so let's go ahead let's do that down here all the package contents first up we have your user guide right here it's literally one page just showing you the product features and details they have more information on the back if you need more help in support next we have your compliance guide then we have your Apple stickers I love that they still include these all these years later these look identical to the first

Stickers I ever got with my iPod mini then we have your power cable right here in black it looks really nice I'd say it's around 6 feet in length give or take a couple inches and then last but not least we have the Mac Mini itself looks really cool so I love seeing the Apple logo on there and we have it in Space Gray now let's look at it in more detail the Space Gray is a really nice feature I love how everything looks with the rounded edges and it's just so lightweight and compact I'm a big fan too of the shiny Apple logo at the top I love that it's reflective I'm feeling a

Little bit nostalgic holding this Mac Mini because I had the original Mac Mini so always like to look for a disk drive but obviously you can tell there's no disk drive right here there's actually nothing on the left or the right side at all it's not till we get to the backside that we see all the ports that we have power button where we connect our power cord Ethernet port we have four USB type-c Thunderbolt 3 ports we have an HDMI port two USB ports and a headphone jack and then you can see we have our ventilation right here for the Mac we can flip it over to the bottom you can

See it says Mac Mini right here we can actually remove this cover if we want to upgrade the RAM so that's a big change from the previous year where we couldn't upgrade the RAM anymore unfortunately you still can't upgrade the SSD so whatever hard drive you select straight from the factory that's what you're going to get by default so unfortunately there's nothing we can really do there but again you had those ports on the back so we could add some more storage externally same with the GPU we could add an e GPU if we want using the ports on the backside but overall guys this is

Really cool I'm really happy with how big it is in the size form factor obviously I bought the base specs it's gonna be good enough for what I need online I'll be sure to follow up in the future with another video let you guys know how it holds up long term and if I do decide to edit some videos on it or any sort of heavy intensive work but basically this is just going to be used for screen capturing in filming tutorial videos for Mac paw software and other software that's Mac specific don't forget the link to that is in my video description below – if you need to get

Your Mac cleaned you want to check out that software so overall guys I'm really excited that the Mac Mini become part of my tool kit I'm underwhelmed by the features but depending on your budget you can really max inspect this thing out I'm disappointed that I only have 128 gigabytes of storage and it's not upgradable but I am pleased that I have so many ports on the back side that I can expand the storage externally I really really really wish they included a keyboard and a mouse because I want the fold mac OS experience and I'm only a PC guy so I only have my PC keyboard

And mouse nothing wrong with that because I bought the Mac Mini specifically to save money I didn't want to pay for a display or anything else like that that I don't need but it would be nice if they did include that to make this even a better value well that concludes our video thank you so much for watching don't forget the product link will be in our video description below please go ahead check it out and do your shopping from there any purchase made through that link help support our channel at no additional cost to you so we're really grateful and thankful
