Apple Mac mini MGEQ2HN/A dual-core Intel Core i5 2.8GHz  8GB RAM, 1TB Fusion Drive

College students are the busiest students there are. With the amount of school work they get, they need to be able to cope and keep up with the demands of being a college student with a healthy social life and an even healthier academic life. Apart from textbooks and other materials, they need a reliable computer that can do much more than just simple Web browsing. What they need is the Mac Mini Dual-Core Intel Core i5. 

Small but wonderful 

The Mac mini MGEQ2LL/A, as indicated in its name, is small. But don't let its size fool you. Within its small case lie powerful components that work together to boost the Mac mini's performance; these include 8GB RAM, 1TB Fusion Drive, and an Intel Core i5 Dual-Core processor with a 2.8GHz processing speed. With all of that powering the Mac mini Dual-core i5, you're sure to be ahead of everyone and always ahead of all of your homework, among other things. 

Graphics to die for! 

"The computer is for academic purposes only!" is what they say, but using the really awesome brand-new Mac mini just for academic purposes is really not using it to its full potential. Especially when the MGEQ2HN/A Mac mini comes with Intel Iris Graphics and HD Graphics 5000; these put together give up to 90 percent better video performance compared to the previous generation of Mac minis. With that said, watching your movies during your free time will almost be like watching in a theater without having to pay for the entrance fee. 

Storage and memory power 

The Mac mini Dual-core Intel Core i5 2.8GHz comes with a 1TB storage capacity that is reinforced with PCIe-based flash storage. In older models, the Fusion Drive is optional, but now you get it even on the entry-level configuration. The Fusion Drive has the ability to automatically manage your data so that the apps, files and other data are stored on the faster flash storage. This means you get to access them a lot more quickly. No more wasting time waiting for your favorite apps and most frequently accessed files to launch. 

Advanced OS for the advanced hardware 

All these advanced components need an equally powerful OS. And the Mac mini has just that. The Mac mini runs on Mac OS X; it has a lot more features and the controls are more streamlined, making navigation through apps and windows a lot easier. Having trouble reading the words on the older Mac OS? 

Use your own accessories! 

Mac Minis are famous for their ability to adapt to any kind of display and for their compatibility with most keyboards and mice. This versatility allows you to save money by reusing old computer accessories that can still be used. This way, you don't have to buy a new display, keyboard, or mouse. Just plug it into your MGEQ2LL/A Mac mini Dual Core i5 desktop and see everything work together harmoniously. 


With all that amazing power, you'd probably think the Mac mini costs a fortune. Well, you're wrong. The Mac mini MGEQ2LL/A is actually the cheapest Mac computer there is. And because of its cheap price, this makes it the perfect computer for the entire family to enjoy. 

Latest Apps 

And at its price, you get the best hardware topped off with the latest versions of your favorite software and apps like iPhoto, iMovie, Keynote, iTunes, etc. without having to pay extra for them! Whether for work or play, your Mac Mini can certainly deliver with the apps in its arsenal. And you're never limited! You can download more apps according to your needs from the app store whenever you need it. Your wallet is already smiling with just you thinking about getting the Mac Mini. 


With great power comes great power consumption? this might prove true for desktops that aren't the Mac mini. It may give you all the things you'd expect from a super computer, but what it won't do is waste energy. It uses less than 6 watts of power when idle and has an advanced power management feature that makes use of its energy-efficient hardware components, working together with the operating system to help conserve power. The Mac mini even regulates the processor in between keystrokes, to help reduce power between the letters you type. Now, that's the kind of dedication you can expect only from an Apple computer! 

A customizable setup, equipped with all the advanced technology you can fit into its compact size, plus much more. There is no question that the Mac mini Dual Core i5 is one of the best computers for the college student looking to make the most of his or her college life. Whether it's for cramming on your thesis or just chilling while playing video games or watching movies, the Mac mini is the college student's best friend.

Mac mini

It's mini in a massive way

Mac mini is an affordable powerhouse that packs the entire Mac experience into a 7.7-inch-square frame. Just connect your own display, keyboard, and mouse, and you're ready to make big things happen.

Punches way above its weight.

Mac mini features fourth-generation Intel Core processors, faster integrated graphics, Thunderbolt 2, next-generation Wi-Fi, and plenty of ports. Everything you expect from a Mac. And more.

Fourth-generation Intel Core processors. The little engine that does.

With fourth-generation Intel Core processors, Mac mini keeps up with computers twice its size. You can choose a 1.4GHz, 2.6GHz, or 2.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5. Or go for an even more powerful 3.0GHz dual-core Intel Core i7.

When you're using processor-intensive applications, Turbo Boost 2.0 increases the clock speed up to 3.5GHz. Hyper-Threading lets each core run two threads, so OS X multitasks even more efficiently. And an integrated memory controller connects fast 1600MHz memory directly to the processor, so it gets right to work on your data. In short, Mac mini is a little box of vroom.

Intel Iris Graphics and HD Graphics 5000. Every pixel comes alive.

Intel Iris Graphics and Intel HD Graphics 5000 deliver up to 90 percent more pixel-pushing performance than the previous generation of integrated graphics. So the video you watch and the games you play are smoother and more responsive. Flipping through photo albums is a breeze. And now you've got all the power you need to edit your HD video into a film worthy of a red carpet premiere.

Fusion Drive. A high capacity for intelligence.

Standard on the $999 model and a configurable option on the others, Fusion Drive combines a 1TB hard drive with amazingly quick PCIe-based flash storage. Fusion Drive automatically and intelligently manages your data so that frequently used apps, documents, photos, and other files stay on the faster flash storage, while infrequently used items move to the hard drive. You'll enjoy shorter boot times and, as the system learns how you work, you'll see faster application launches and quicker file access. Best of all, you don't have to do a thing to make it happen.

You can also choose a 500GB or 1TB hard drive. Or configure your Mac mini with up to 1TB of flash storage in a solid-state drive for the fastest performance. Flash storage delivers nearly nine times the performance of a disk drive - speed you'll notice when you boot your Mac mini, launch an app, or browse your photo library.

Thunderbolt 2. The fastest, most versatile I/O in any desktop. Of any size.

Thunderbolt 2 technology in Mac mini is phenomenally fast. The two Thunderbolt 2 ports on Mac mini feature dual 20-Gbps channels for data transfer. That's up to four times faster than USB 3. But beyond speed, Thunderbolt gives you unprecedented expansion capabilities. You can daisy-chain as many as six Thunderbolt devices to a single port. And since Thunderbolt is based on DisplayPort technology, Mini DisplayPort devices like the Apple LED Cinema Display plug right in, too.

Plenty of ports make it ready for anything.

As powerful as Thunderbolt 2 is, it's just one of your options. If you have a third-party display, you can use the HDMI port to connect it. You can connect two displays to see more of your photos, movies, and documents at the same time. And a built-in SDXC card slot makes it easy to import those photos and videos from your digital camera.

USB 3.

With USB 3 built into Mac mini, you can connect your external hard drive and transfer large files in seconds instead of minutes. Every Mac mini comes with four USB 3 ports - with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2 - and you can connect all your USB-compatible devices, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod, or digital camera.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Powerful 802.11ac wireless technology is built into every Mac mini. It automatically locates your Wi-Fi network, so you can connect and start surfing the web, printing, and streaming your music wirelessly. Bluetooth wireless technology is also built in, so you can connect accessories such as a wireless keyboard and mouse. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth also make it easy to seamlessly share your work with your other devices using Handoff or AirDrop.

Bring your own display, keyboard, and mouse.

Plug your own display, keyboard, and mouse into Mac mini. Turn it on. And just like that, everything works together. That's one of the great things about Mac mini. You can mix and match it with almost anything.

No screen is too big.

It's easy to connect Mac mini to the biggest screen in the house - your HDTV - courtesy of a built-in HDMI port. All it takes is one HDMI cable to start enjoying movies and TV shows from iTunes, surfing the web, and flipping through your photo library, all in brilliant HD. And when you just want to listen to music, you can play your entire iTunes collection through your home entertainment center, or stream it to a set of speakers in any room via an AirPort Express Base Station.
