The latest Mac Mini is using Apple's M1 processor, but instead of turning it on, I decided to take it apart. I hope I didn't break it.

    Can you plug the mac mini m1 usb-4 port into a display with a usb-c dp1.4 alt mode input support and pd [ power delivery ] 90w output and have that power the device, i.e. like a thunderbolt/usb-c enabled laptop, versus having to also plug the mac mini m1 into a power source?

    >8 or 16 gigs, all proprietary stuff, obsolete on the shelves. back in my days we used to call this kind of thing a terminal. not a computer. hell even the HP/Wyse/Dell terminals actually have hardware inside you can upgrade, and closer to a SNES-sized PC. this mac can be adequately called a terminal.

  • Jonathan Brawn

    I imagine there's no SODIMM option because there isn't a "normal" memory controller on the M1 SoC, so to add SODIMM support they'd have to also add a suitable memory controller, and bring all those needed signals off-chip.
