I know very little about computers - email, videogames, internet, that's about it - but needed one to manage my music and photos. This worked basically straight out of the box with very little messing about - screen prompts guide you through everything - and has been even simpler to run day-to-day. All my peripherals plug straight into the USBs on the back, the inbuilt speaker plays my music loud enough for the study, it runs quietly and looks pretty cool! It takes up so little space too, which is good in a small house.

I'd recommend this if you don't really have any computer knowledge and just want to get on with doing stuff without worrying about it crashing and whatnot. I'll never go back to a PC!

I have always used PC's and so this was my first plunge into the Mac pool. And although the water was a little chilly at first it soon warmed up and became a pleasure to swim in! Metaphore over with, this computer is superb for people like me. I use my computer at home for internet browsing, downloading music, film and track editing, storing and backing up bills and important letters and or photos (via a scanner), email, and the occasional written document. For these things, this little Mac is perfect! You need to download software like 'Open Office' to get word documents like the ones used on a PC, but once that's done you're flying!
If you are a PC user and thinking of converting, be advised that the transition won't be completely pain free, but it doesn't take long to understand the way in which a mac works and once you've got that sorted, you will really enjoy its simplicity.

And it is tiny - no one believes me when i say that the tiny box, not much bigger than five stacked CD cases, is my entire home PC.

It is only sold as the unit itself, ie it doesn't come with keyboard, mouse or screen so you'll have to factor all that in to your costs, but now that I'm sold on Mac i would possibly advise buying the very beautiful all in one solution iMac 20" Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz,1GB,250GB,SuperDrive, which will save you all the hassle of setting up all the periferal accessories!

This is my first mac and crikey is it good!!

I switched from pc to the mac in hope of finding a computer that doesnt crash all the time and isnt thirsty for 2-3gb of RAM like vista.

The mac is so quiet you have to look at the light on the front to see if its on, even if your going through the hard drive you cannot hear it.

In a minute or two from switch on, the mac is fully useable ready to surf the web, create a movie, edit photos, create or design a website, manage and make music etc and all this is included ,and not as a pricey add-ons!!

The mac mini is perfect for anything especally media, but dont buy this mac for gaming, if you want good gaming on a mac buy an imac, a macbook or a mac pro.

I use an elgato eyeTV for DTT which is a freeview tv tuner for the mac which is a perfect companion!

I bought mine from the apple website for £460 including the Apple wireless keyboard and mighty mouse!!

Much to my frustration i have just had to buy one of these. As I say, they're great little machines: tiny, beautifully designed and powerful enough for what most users will ever need, with all the joys of the very superior Mac OS and user experience.

So the caveat: this model is now (June 2008) massively overdue an upgrade. Unfortunately the Mac Mini does not seem to be a very high priority on apple's development schedule. It's exactly the same spec and price as it was at launch nearly a year ago, which is a long time in the fast moving computer market. In the mean time, I think I'm right in saying that Apple as updated every other computer product line. Sadly the humble Mini seems to have been passed over, and no longer represents the such excellent value. This is a shame, as it is really Apple's only "budget" offering. The other component (i.e. keep your screen) desktop option is the mighty Mac Pro, and let's face it, most of us really don't need 8-core Xeon processing, (not to mention the mighty price tag that goes with it.)

Anyway, as I say, I had to get one, because I just wasn't in a position to wait for Apple's mysterious upgrade cycle to kick into action, and no doubt I'll feel pretty peeved when the replacement comes along offering a performance leap in all departments for probably a lower price. And this presumably won't be very long coming, as the chips in this model are no longer being produced by Intel. It just seems silly that the value you get from an apple product should be so dependent on when you buy. Most of us just don't want to worry about that. Even a price reduction wouldn't hurt, pending the release of the new models.

Come on Apple, it wouldn't hurt to look after the little people!
