A Review of the M2 Pro Mac mini

The Mac mini line has long been popular for offering the Mac experience in a desktop at a very reasonable price and in a small, easy package. The line took a major step forward when Apple started offering their own silicon in the computers, and in the latest iteration, users can now even opt for a Pro chip. So, how good is the new M2 Pro Mac mini? This excellent video review takes a look at the computer and everything you can expect from it.

Coming to you from 9 to 5 Mac, this great video review takes a look at the M2 Pro Mac mini. The Mac mini line has always packed a lot of bang for the buck; in fact, it has been my computer of choice since 2012. The M1 chip was a major step forward for the line, but now, in the M2 generation, users can opt for either the base M2 or the M2 Pro for more power. I have owned the M2 MacBook Air for about six months now, and I have been highly impressed by its ability to tackle any task I throw at it, even heavy photo and video editing. Check out the video above for the full rundown.

I'm looking for a monitor to go with my Mac Mini M2 Pro. I don't have a big bag of money. Can I get something decent for $500 - $700 (I will be using Lightroom and Photoshop, no video). Recommendations, please.

I have the Dell 32 Monitor - P3222QE, it is not Adobe rgb monitor but for what I mostly do ( weddings and architecture, I m pretty happy. About 520 usd from amazon

Have a look at Artisright channel on youtube, its probably the most thorough run through and compare of the current line of mac minis and studios and macbook pros and how they behave under pressure from photography and video usage

This is a great monitor to pair up. Not 5k but good bang for the buck. Comparable to older iMac 5k panels. Look for an LG 27” 27BN88U-B Ergo IPS UHD 4K Ultrafine™ Monitor.
