4.0 out of 5 stars Good little computer. Works well with TV. Short on RAM, 5 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple Mac Mini (Dual-Core i5 2.5GHz Processor, 4GB DDR3 SDRAM, 500GB, HD Graphics) (Personal Computers)
I got this to have a fully functioning computer on my TV for music, media handling, emails, internet etc. It does all of these perfectly, after a few of the usual Apple set-up glitches (it always seems that Apple products only work perfectly with other Apple products). Mountain Lion is fine - nothing special in comparison to the Snow Leopard I have been used to on my MacBook Pro. I do find that 4GB RAM is barely enough and on a few occasions, the Mac Mini has run out of RAM. I may upgrade to 8GB with a Kingston kit rather than pay for Apple's own extortionate memory upgrade.

I also got the bluetooth Apple keyboard and magic trackpad, held in the Clique tray connector. This is a great solution for lazy sofa browsing, once you have filed down the Clique connector so that the trackpad fits!

I agree with you on the memory - 4GB is not enough, and Mac Mini is slowed down as it flogs memory on and off the disk. I bought 16GB from Crucial and got a big improvement, but I should think 8GB will also be very good.
