Identification and Background
The Mac mini Mid 2010 is easily distinguishable from its predecessors. The 4th iteration of the Mac mini has an aluminum unibody case, which matches most of Apple's product lineup for 2010. On the underside of the mini is a black circular twist-off cover, which can be easily removed to gain access to the computer's internals.
Some of the most notable changes from the previous Model A1283 mini are of course the unibody casing, as well as the addition of an SD card slot and an HDMI port. One item that is missing on the mini, though, is the power brick, since it now has an entirely internal power supply. The Mac mini Mid 2010 is also noted for being the most energy-efficient desktop computer, using less than 10 watts of power when running at idle.
