4 Star Review  Macworld.com - Jan 26, 2005

The Mac mini wont appeal to computer users looking for a lot of raw processing power. But its a stellar bargain if you want a tiny machine for performing basic taskseven with its skimpy amount of preinstalled RAM. And its especially appealing to users who already have their own monitor, input devices, and peripherals.

3 Star Review   By member ipd40 - Mar 31, 2007   

Strengths: small form factor extremely quiet

Weakness: OS X lacks parallelization, expensive camera

The greatest thing about this computer is how small and quiet it is. The fan turns on probaly for a minute once every two weeks. The OS X has the best userinterface, but unfortunately the underlying base is quite poorly implemented. This thing freezes regularily w/ a spinning beach-ball. This seems to be caused from trying to access slow devices (CDROM, network). The worse is that OS X tries to check these devices every now and then even if I'm not using it.

Wonderful and Really Small Mac!
4 Star Review   By member zha888 - Dec 29, 2005   

Strengths: Very easy to use(I had never used any Mac machine before). It could connect very well to my previous peripherals. Fast and quiet enough!!!

Weakness: A little bit expensive. also there is only one memory slot.

I would like to recommend it to all the new Mac fans. I am a new fan but have no problem using it at all. It is amazing especially for the GUI.

Good and simple
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Fast enough for Office/Internet, very easy to use. Connects well with my existing peripherals. Very quiet!

Weakness: Quite a price tag.

Neither my wife nor me had ever used a mac. But we had no problems at all. Now I have a nice unix box to use the command line with all my favourite utils and my wife enjoys the easy to use GUI and the apps that came with the mac.

Very Quiet & Slow
2 Star Review   By member viagra - Aug 29, 2005   

Strengths: Easy to understand GUI with lots of functionality

Weakness: Very Laggy GUI, discusting MM-performance for that price

I was very excited to get that sexy small thing. First disapointment was to see the single DV-I out interface. NO S-VHS out or Coax-Out for using that quiet piece as a MM-Console. And no VGA out (for my huge CRT Monitor f.ex.). So I had the choice: Buy a LCD with DV-I or give the Mini back. After working around with OS X ripping some songs and some Movies, i have to realize, that this machine is only a 'nice to have'. For a workhorse, it lacks too much power. Better keeping the money to buy me a G5, then.... Sorry, but truth is truth.

5 Star Review   By member soupdawg30 - Feb 26, 2005   

Strengths: Small size, Fast, tons of software, MAC OS X, NO viruses.

Weakness: Video card, 1 ram slot.

By far the most conumer friendly Macintosh out there. This computer is great for the everyday user that just wants to be able to check there email and surf the internet. The wireless connectivity is flawless. Setup is a breeze. I was surfing the internet after the first 3 minutes it came out the box. This computer is great for anyone who just wants to get away from the disaster that Windows based PC's are running into. If your tired of Viruses and stop errors. Get a Mac Mini.
