The Apple Mac mini "Core i5" 1.4 (Late 2014/Aluminum Unibody) features a 22 nm "Haswell" 1.4 GHz Intel "Core i5" (4260U) processor with two independent processor "cores" on a single chip, a 3 MB shared level 3 cache, 4 GB of onboard 1600 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM, a 500 GB hard drive and an integrated Intel HD Graphics 5000 GPU which shares the onboard system memory.
Ports onboard include two Thunderbolt 2 ports, four USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port and a Gigabit Ethernet LAN. For wireless connectivity you also have 802.11ac Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n compatible), and Bluetooth 4.0 and an SDXC card slot.
Compared to its predecessor, this model looks identical, but it has a more advanced architecture and graphics, Thunderbolt 2 capability, and faster Wi-Fi. On the other hand, it has a slower clockspeed processor, no longer supports Firewire, has RAM that can no longer be upgraded, and no longer supports two 2.5" drives.
All Mac mini systems are configured by default without a display, keyboard, or mouse, but numerous Apple and third-party options are available.
