So far so good...

The mac mini I purchased seems to work well for my needs. There is a lot I have yet to tackle, but what I have done has been very user friendly. I edit Weddings, Commercials, Ect. and so far, it has done well in all areas.

My most reliable desktop yet

2013-07-03
By Kerry Lawson

I’ve never used a Mac before and now I’m not quite sure why I hadn’t – this Mac mini is my most reliable desktop yet. At first I was a little apprehensive of connecting the mini to my Samsung monitor, thinking the two wouldn’t play well together, and fortunately I was wrong. I barely had to do any configuration to use my old monitor with the Mac mini. It works just as perfectly with my HDTV – which is great for when I want to watch movies and play games on a wider screen.

I’m not a tech-savvy person in any way. I just know that the Mac mini is the quickest computer I’ve used, no matter how many applications I have open. I’ve also recently installed Parallels so I can keep enjoying the familiar Windows interface, and I’m happy to say that the mini runs Windows 7 just as well as my previous Lenovo. My friend recommends swapping out the stock HD with an SSD to make my Mac mini even faster, but I’m enjoying the 1 TB of space too much to give it up.

I've only had the mac mini for a couple of weeks, but am enjoying it. I am switching from PC and have some learning left to do, but have no complaints at all about the mac. Easy to set up and start using.

silent powerhouse

2013-01-07
By Pat

Apple has created a deceptively powerful Mac in the Mini. Very fast. Absolutely silent operation. Perfect for Plex multimedia server. I will add more RAM so I can set up several more virtual machines on the hardware.

A Simple yet Powerful package

2012-11-23
By Subrat

I was waiting for the new release of mac mini since several days, as the last model was more than a year old. With a quad core 2.3 Ghz i7 processor, this is a power horse in a little package. The included 4 GB RAM is sufficient for general consumer desktop applications. I may upgrade the RAM to 8 or 16 GB, as I generally do graphics related work. I was hoping apple to come up with 8GB RAM with this model, as the base model has been upgraded from 2 to 4 GB with this release.
The Included 1 TB HDD is more than sufficient for storing lots of music, photos and documents. What I like the most in this unit is the ability to upgrade its components yourself, unlike other apple products, which cannot be opened by the user. Thanks to Apple for a simple desktop solution.

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.
