Cracking little machine that packs a big punch,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple Mac mini (Dual-Core i5,2.3GHz,2GB,500GB HD,HD Graphics (Personal Computers)
I was no Apple fanboy, having grown up with Windows PC's and only got this machine so that I could program my IPad 3rd gen but now find the OS Lion operating system so much nicer than windows. It boots up and powers down much quicker, has a beautiful human interface and just seems so much more sorted than Windows. Yes, you can't so easily tinker with it as with Windows (probably a good thing) and Apple are a lot more restrictive when it comes to putting stuff on your computer and the Mini doesn't even get a DVD drive (you can piggyback your Windows drive). It's about the cheapest entry into Apple technology and is very minimalist but I find it's growing on me as my main PC, now preferred over my Windows kit. I stuck 8GB of ram on it for only £40 and it really motors. Apple products might be pricey but to me they seem to exude quality - maybe I'm a fanboy after all.
