Buying a new Mac is usually pretty straightforward. It’s always best to wait when the current model has been around for a couple of years, but if you can’t wait, you won’t have any buyer’s remorse. Most of the time, the update is just a processor upgrade that a majority of users will be fine with missing out on. And even in the case of a redesign like the recent M2 MacBook Air, you’ll probably save a few bucks buying the current model.

It’s a little different with the Mac mini. The current M1 model is getting close to two years since it was released, and based on the recent arrival of the M2 chip, it’s due for an update. But the update could be a major one that not only provides more processing oomph but could inherently change Apple’s smallest desktop and make the old model look a lot worse.

So if you’re on the verge of plunking down your cash for one of the current Mac minis that Apple sells, we strongly urge you to wait. Here’s why.

When Apple unveiled the M1 processor in November 2020, the company released three Macs with it: the MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac mini. The M2 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air were just released, so that means the Mac mini will be getting the M2 soon.
