This version of Apple's Mac Mini features 8GB RAM, a 3.6 GHz Intel Core i3 Quad-Core processor, and a 128GB SSD. Its memory can be upgraded to 64GB, plus it includes several ThunderBolt 3 ports, an HDMI port, two USB-A ports, and Bluetooth 5.0, along with Intel UHD graphics 630. This model runs macOS Mojave and will be able to be upgraded as future software becomes available.
Next, you'll want to make sure you have all the peripherals needed to use the Mac Mini; it stays affordable by leaving them out, after all. You can really go with any Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, though Apple's Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse 2 are some of the best choices (opens in new tab) to pair with it. You'll also need a monitor (opens in new tab), and there are plenty of inexpensive options on Amazon to ensure your setup stays below $1,000.
