5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for me! 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
I wanted to own this for a while before i wrote a review. Computers are deep with larger OS's than tablets and things alike. So why did i jump to mac? Is it because of the new windows 8 OS or my hate of windows in general? No. Much simpler than that. Hardware! I seemed to be of the few who like windows 8 and i have no beef with windows in general. I am no devotee of everything apple either. I didn't know how to use OSX lion/Mavericks so i didn't jump from windows mainly for that. I simply wanted a small simple machine that did everything i needed but i wanted silence. I use my mac mini as a hub for almost everything. I don't need a tablet. Every PC running windows, at a middle of the road price point, has either noisy fans or clicky hard drives. My last HP laptop had both. I saw the Mac Mini (now MM) at pc world and loved its simpleness. It has all the ports i need. i can plug in any peripherals i've currently been using without hitch. But most important of all it makes no sound. Almost none at all. It also emits no heat. It can be on all day and the metal body isn't even warm to the touch. Occasionally if you stick your ear next to it you can hear the HDD turn over but compared to other laptops/desktops i've owned it's almost inaudible. If the MM came with SSD and 8/16 gigs built in i think this would be simply the ultimate computer. These upgrades can be done at cost and probably worth it for more speed all round. For me as it is out of the box is fine. Everybody has they're own needs with these things as they provide a different tool to everyone. Do i prefer mac to windows now i've had time to play. Yes. It's simpleness belongs here. Plenty of screen customisation without the need to delve beyond that. Not sure if you can with mac but i simply haven't needed to even look. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Entry to the world of Apple Mac 9 Jun 2013
By Bernardette Lugner TOP 1000 REVIEWER
If you already own a good screen, the compact Mac Mini could be for you, and will get you -- as it did me -- into the world of Mac and OS X a lot more cheaply, but less prettily, than buying an iMac. I got set up very quickly, using a Logitech wireless keyboard and an Apple Magic Mouse, plus an ordinary Dell screen and my speakers. The included video adapter makes the connection to the screen work, or you can attach to an HDMI-equipped screen or TV. If you want to use DVDs or CDs, you will need to buy an external drive and plug it into a USB port. (25-30). My cheap Samsung DVD drive was fine.

The Mac Mini box looks great, is completely silent, but is inconvenient to use. Everything is around the back - on/off switch, four USB3 ports, line in and sound out ports, camera memory card port, etc., and I found that a USB extension hub made life easier. That line in port will not work with a normal microphone.

Performance with 4GB memory is not good enough. Using OS X Mountain Lion generally leads you to have multiple windows open and multiple applications running, so with 4GB the Mac Mini is disappointingly slow. Luckily, it is very easy to follow the supplied instructions, unclip the 4GB and put in two new memory modules. I installed 16GB (about 100) and performance was transformed for the better. Having checked memory usage, I would expect 8GB also to give good performance.

If, like me, you need to use PC software that has no equivalent on Mac, then I would recommend the Parallels software that lets you run Windows on the Mac Mini.

The Mac Mini is your introduction into the "more affordable side" of Apple computers, with a very small footprint not only does the Mini look cool with it's sleek smooth lines, it's eco friendly with it's low power consumption, yes has a respectable Dual Core i5 processor and solid overall spec.

There are a few downers though worth a mention
And a lot of good things to like

My overall conclusions good/bad

+ Sleek, compact and very lightweight fits anywhere taking up no space
+ Good performance for day to day tasks (more power intensive users should look at the Core i7 model)
+ Decent base specification, 500GB hard drive is enough for many users as is 4GB of ram
+ Easy to upgrade memory (via the removable base) takes up to 16GB ram
+ Good connectivity 1x Thunderbolt port, 1x FireWire 800 port; 4xUSB 3 ports; HDMI port; SDXC card slot, 3.5mm headphone socket. You can connect to a VGA monitor with an additional adaptor
+ Built in wifi, excellent performance and range + Bluetooth 4.
