  • Graphics
    The NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics processor in every Mac mini gives you outstanding graphics performance. It brings pure power to the latest 3D games and graphics-intensive applications. And you’ll notice a big difference when you work with high-resolution photos and high-definition video
