  Very good accessory computer,  2012-12-28
By Mark Hollis

The Mac Mini is a very capable computer for small tasks, I am bothered by e fact that it no longer includes a CD/DVD Super Drive, as my last one was very useful for making both CDs and DVDs on the network while my workstation did other work (like video editing).

We are using this one for light word processing and may do light photo pre-processing after a RAM upgrade. It is wireless-ready and comes with a monitor adapter that allows you to use a non-Apple monitor. Since we "re-purposes" an Apple monitor with a mini-display port, we can confirm that the Thunderbolt port in this Mac Mini will work with older Apple Mini-Display port monitors, such as the 24" LED Cinema Display, which is what we have ours hooked up to. Apple no longer sells this display.

We recommend the Mac Mini with the following reservations:

Anything you plan to install on this computer will need to either come from the Apple Store, or you will need to get of share an external CD/DVD drive to install new software.
You may need an external CD/DVD drive anyway if you plan on burning discs with a Mac Mini (a use we had for our last one).
iFixit rates the Mac Mini an 8 out of 10 for repairability. The only negatives are that you have to take the entire thing apart to replace the power supply and the processor is soldered onto the motherboard and, thus, may not be upgraded.

All in all a good buy. Especially if the price drops. We looked at earlier versions of the Mini with SuperDrives and found that buying this new one was actually MORE affordable than customizing an older one to include what this has stock.
