If the KDS controller is the brains of the Lavu Kitchen Display System, the Mac mini is the heart of the system, a small, central unit through which information flows. Don’t let its size fool you; the Mac mini is a powerful computer, with fourth-generation Core processors and a built-in power supply.
The 1.4-GHz mini has 500 gigabytes of storage and 8 gigabytes of 1600 MHz LPDDR3 memory. Computer numerical control (CNC) machines are used to create the Mac mini, the same technology used to build mission-critical spacecraft components. With the Mac mini, you are getting top precision, in addition to top computing power.
The Mac mini has numerous ports: 2 Thunderbolt 2 ports (up to 20 Gbps), 4 USB 3 ports (up to 5 Gbps), HDMI port, SDXC card slot, Gigabit Ethernet port, audio in port, 3.5 mm headphone jack, and IR receiver.
A battery backup is highly recommended for the Mac mini.
