Under the banner: BYODKM, which stands for "Bring Your Own Display, Keyboard and Mouse", Apple introduced the MacMini in 2005. Until that moment, Apple always provided the complete package. The mini was meant to make it easier for other users to move to Apple, because they often already owned the peripherals.
The design of the MacMini is simple but effective. At first glance, you do not expect a whole operating system to be run on this small module. The mini is a mere 16.51 cm wide and 5 cm high and can fit on even the smallest of desks. Additionally, this is also the world’s economical desktop computer. When it is not performing any tasks, it uses less than 14 Watts in electricity. Moreover, the MacMini can be recycled once it has performed its duties.
