While Apple’s new M1-powered MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro have hogged a lot of the limelight since their launch, it’s worth sparing a thought for the new M1 Mac mini, which has the potential to be a great little music computer at a great price.

This is particularly true this Cyber Monday, because the M1 Mac mini is currently available at a tidy discount courtesy of B&H Photo.
