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.

Beautifully designed entry level Mac. Absolutely Love it!

If you're like me, you'll have spent ages comparing features and specs before splashing the cash on a new Mac. In my case I already have a MacBook Pro and wanted an additional machine for my daughter, and this fits the bill beautifully.

Here's why...

Quick word of warning first - if you already own a MBP or MBA and want a techie comparison with the iMac best skip this review. I've come from a Windows background, and I'm not an expert on the Apple mac line-up, and this is meant for similar non-experts.

Firstly, the hardware - which is all held in a small aluminium box at about 8 x 8 inches and about 1.5 inches tall.

In terms of hardware you get:-

* * 2.5 GHz dual-core Intel processor with 4Gb of Memory (Not fastest but not bad!)
* * 500GB hard drive (Huge amount of space for photos and videos)
* * A Firewire 800 port (to connect a very fast external disk)
* * 4 USB 3.0 ports (to connect a keyboard, external disks or other stuff)
* * HDMI port - to connect to an external screen or TV
* * Thunderbolt connection (Apple's own connection for an external screen or very fast disk)
* * Audio line - for a headphone
* * Gigabyte Ethernet port - for the internet
* * WIFI connectivity plus Bluetooth
* * SDXC card - so you can transfer photos
* * Preinstalled Mac OS X and iLife (free upgrade to the latest operating system Mavericks)
*

* What you don't get:

* External monitor (I recently upgraded to a

Firstly I ordered this product from Amazon at 11pm Saturday and it was delivered Monday 2pm so a big thanks to Amazon efficiency. This is in total contrast to Currys online who advertised the same product online buy and collect in one hour. Having been fed a load of miss information it transpires that Currys take money of people for items with no stock and then cannot advise when they will be getting any. After two weeks they cancelled my order stating no stock
I could have told them 2 weeks ago

Rant over. Why did I buy this 2012 model over the 2014 equivalent

Simple! in the apple store the new model took over 1 minute booting up and was painfully slow
This model boots in 35 seconds and I snippy enough for most tasked however this model can be upgraded to ssd and additional ram
The 2014 model has soldered fixed ram so you are set for life. The hard drive can be changed I believe which would help but they make it difficult

So I have a new warranted PC with potential upgrade for future demands

Great product

Steve

It's been a week since I bought it and I absolutely love it! It's quiet. You can't hear anything. It also comes with built in speakers which is a great added bonus for something of this size. You may think this will be quite slow because it has a 5400rpm 500GB harddrive. Well, you're wrong. It takes less then 13 seconds for me to load PhotoShop and boots up/shuts down very quickly. It's a lot faster then my old 7200rpm 500GB computer. So far i'm having so issue with 4gb of RAM even while running PhotoShop, Safari and Pages (Mac equivalent of Microsoft Word) at the same time. Though if you want to upgrade the RAM, you can by easily twisting the bottom bit off, remove the RAM and add more RAM. This is the main reason why I bought this late-2012 model instead of the new late-2014 model. My mouse works perfectly fine with it and I bought a wired apple keyboard as my old keyboard had an old PS/2 connector and not USB.
It also comes with a standard 1 year apple warranty, apple stickers, Manual and UK Plug if you're buying it from the UK)
