Mac mini Late 2005


The Apple Mac mini Late 2005 is a personal computer that was designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple from 2005 to 2006 as part of the Mac mini G4 series of Mac mini computers. The computer has been introduced on September 27, 2005, and its price started at $499. The new Mac mini features a 1.33 or 1.5 GHz PowerPC 7447a G4 processor, 512 MB of RAM, 40 GB or 80 GB hard drive, 12x DVD-ROM/CD-RW “Combo” drive, built-in AirPort Extreme Card, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR, and 32 MB ATI Radeon 9200 graphics in the base model. This Mac mini has been discontinued on February 28, 2006.

Those computers have never been formally presented and have not been assigned to a dedicated order number. Apple just updated the CPU clock of the currently available Mac mini variants. A model with 1.25 GHz was sped up to 1.33 GHz and the version with a 1.42 GHz processor has been sped up to 1.5 GHz. Computers also got more RAM. Along with the product update, Apple still kept the basic version with 1.25 GHz on offer.

Today Mac mini Late 2005 is 16 years old!
