Want more Thunderbolt 4 ports? Get the M2 Pro Mac mini or you'll get 2 Thunderbolt 4 ports only

Plugging stuff into a computer seems like something we stopped doing a long time ago. But, if you still need ports, every Mac ships with a few of them, including the new M2 and M2 Pro Mac mini models.

But, since there are two different types of Mac mini models to choose from, you also get a different array of ports on both. This time around, if you upgrade to the faster processor, which is the M2 Pro, you get a total of four Thunderbolt 4 ports. If you are planning to stick with the base model M2 Mac mini, you get a total of two Thunderbolt 4 ports only. The capabilities of these ports remain the same on both models, with speeds up to 40Gb/s supported on each port.

Every other port remains the same. This includes two USB-A ports, an HDMI port, Ethernet, and everyone's favorite for no reason at all, the headphone jack. You only get four Thunderbolt 4 ports if you decide to upgrade to the M2 Pro, nothing else.

The Mac mini is cheaper than before and starts at just $599 for the base model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
