Acoustic Performance

Declared noise emission values in accordance with ECMA-109

Sound Power Level

Sound Pressure Level

Operator Position

L p A,m (dB)


1.3 (K V = 0.3)


Wireless web

1.4 (K V = 0.3)


  1. L W A,m is the mean A-weighted sound power level, rounded to the nearest 0.1 B.

  2. L p A,m is the mean A-weighted sound pressure level measured at the operator position (rounded to the nearest 1 dB).

  3. 1 B (bel) = 10 dB (decibel)

  4. K v is the statistical adder for computing upper-limit of A-weighted sound power level.

  5. The quantity, L W A,c (formerly called L W Ad) may be computed from the sum of L W A,m and K v .

  6. The Wireless web test browses 25 popular websites.

  7. Configuration tested: 3.0GHz 6-core Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB memory, 256GB Fusion Drive, Intel UHD graphics 630.

  1. 1GB = 1 billion bytes and 1TB = 1 trillion bytes; actual formatted capacity less.

  2. Weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process.

  3. Acoustics measured from typical operator position sitting in front of standard Mac mini system. Acoustics may vary by configuration.

  4. iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote are available on the Mac App Store. Downloading apps requires an Apple ID and a device that is compatible with the OS version required for each app.

  5. Data accurate as of product launch.

  6. ENERGY STAR and the ENERGY STAR mark are registered trademarks owned by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

  7. Apple defines its restrictions on harmful substances, including definitions for what Apple considers to be “free of,” in the Apple Regulated Substances Specification . Every Apple product is free of PVC and phthalates with the exception of AC power cords in India, Thailand (for two-prong AC power cords), and South Korea, where we continue to seek government approval for our PVC and phthalates replacement.

  8. PVC-free AC power cord available in all regions except India and South Korea.

  9. Recycled material claim applies to the enclosure.

  10. Mac mini achieved a Gold rating from EPEAT in the U.S. and Canada.
