M1 version of the Mac Mini disassembled: there is still room inside, and the fuselage can be reduced by 30%

M1 version of the Mac Mini disassembled: there is still room inside, and the fuselage can be reduced by 30%

Sina Digital News reported on the morning of November 19 that this week, three types of computers carrying Apple’s self-developed chip M1 have gradually reached the hands of users. Among them, the Mac Mini is a small-sized desktop computer. At present, some users have disassembled them after receiving them. Let’s take a look at the differences between computers equipped with M1 chip.

The video of the dismantling is from @ Brandon geekabit, a YouTube blogger.

As Apple’s first self-developed chip desktop, the M1 version of the Mac Mini has good performance. Of course, this chip will also remove some things, such as only two usb-c (instead of four), and because of the integrated ram, users can no longer upgrade their own memory or hard disk.

Two usb-c ports are missing, two usb-c ports are missing

The appearance of the Mac Mini is no different from that of the Intel version, and the disassembly method is similar to that of the previous version, except that some TR6 screws are used. It is worth noting that Brandon has come up with a new motherboard, highlighting that the internal components of the M1 chip version take up much less space.

 

The host is very small, and the degree of integration is very high

Although it’s disappointing that ram and SSD can’t be replaced, M1 chip brings more imagination to the computer industry and is compatible with iPhone and iPad apps. With excellent heat control, Intel is very nervous.

 

Redesign the mold, apple can completely launch a new Mac Mini that is 30-40% smaller than the existing product size, and apple can completely launch a new Mac Mini that is 30-40% smaller than the existing product size

 

It’s worth noting that because the M1 chip has a very small heating capacity and the compact design, there is still plenty of room in the fuselage, which may indicate that Apple will launch a smaller Mac Mini in the future.
