Along with the launch of the new M2 Mac mini, Apple dropped the Intel version, meaning only the Mac Pro remains available without Apple Silicon.
That leaves the 2019 Mac Pro as the only Mac that can be purchased with an Intel processor. Currently, this Mac Pro has no Apple Silicon options.
This means that this Mac Pro is also the last machine capable of running Boot Camp and therefore installing Microsoft Windows.
The latest Intel-based Mac mini remains listed on Apple’s comparison page, but only with technical details. There is no longer an option to order it, aside from Apple’s refurbished hardware page.
