The Mac Studio is the beefed up Mac Mini we’ve always wanted — here’s how to get your hands on one.
So, it turns out that the rumors were true. The Mac Mini now has a more powerful big brother, which looks like the Mini’s chunkier sibling and is 8x faster than the M1.
But all that extra chunk is there by design for the beasty internals. Inside, you’ll find an M1 Ultra, a minimum of 32GB RAM and up to 8TB storage. Alongside the tonne of I/O round back, alongside an SD card slot and 2x Thunderbolt 4 ports round front, this has everything you need for a professional workload.
Where to buy the Mac Studio
So far, it should come as no surprise that the only place confirmed to get pre-orders is Apple themselves — ready to launch on March 18. Expect to see more retailers opening up shop soon, though.

Where to buy the Apple Studio Display
Of course, that’s not the only thing Apple announced that is sure to get creative pros drooling. Alongside this, Tim Cook announced the Studio Display: a 27-inch 5K panel with A13 Bionic, an upgraded 12MP Ultra wide camera and improved audio. This is sure to give you one of the best windows into your work.
Currently, these are also available for pre-order only on Apple (opens in new tab), with prices at $1,600 (£1,500).
