The latest Mac Mini is using Apple's M1 processor, but instead of turning it on, I decided to take it apart. I hope I didn't break it.

  • Can you plug the mac mini m1 usb-4 port into a display with a usb-c dp1.4 alt mode input support and pd [ power delivery ] 90w output and have that power the device, i.e. like a thunderbolt/usb-c enabled laptop, versus having to also plug the mac mini m1 into a power source?

  • I imagine there's no SODIMM option because there isn't a "normal" memory controller on the M1 SoC, so to add SODIMM support they'd have to also add a suitable memory controller, and bring all those needed signals off-chip.

Storage, yes be upset we can't stick our own m.2 in there but “unified memory” is obviously not upgradable. Do you upgrade the ram in your phone? Or maybe you’d like to upgrade the cache on a processor?

  • Why is it the same number of dollars US as Pounds GB £699 $699 - stupid.- Apple should make this with 16 GB incorporated and let you upgrade with SODIMM DDR4 RAM and NVME slots and included somehow more USB slots so you can get a decent keyboard and mouse working and then still more devices connected. (I think in at least 6 to 8 months the compatibility will be significantly better) and it will run a bit better. This board is about the same size as a medium performance graphics card.

Docker, MS teams etc and some drivers arent supported. The reviewers seem to have different systems to commercial models or their reviews arent applicable to actual/realistic use.

  • Very disappointed with Apple. They keep going in the wrong direction. First they charged insane amounts for RAM and storage upgrades. Then they remove the option to upgrade storage. I am thinking if they add the m.2 back on the next generation I’ll buy it, then next gen comes around then remove the RAM’s SODIMM slots and they remove the 64GB RAM option and give you a max of 16GB RAM and they take away two of the four thunderbolt ports. They need Steve Jobs back.
