Apple Mac Mini (2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo)
3 Star Review  cnet.com - Aug 27, 2007

THE GOOD: Fast new Core 2 Duo processor compares well with competing Windows desktops; useful iLife 08 software; supersmall chassis remains unique in the mainstream desktop market. THE BAD: Comparable slim Windows desktops offer more features for the dollar, as well as expandability; no information from Apple on whether youll have to pay for a Leopard upgrade two months from now; free phone support for only 90 days. THE BOTTOM LINE: The Mac Mini remains unique as the smallest mainstream desktop, but competition from Dell and HP has narrowed the gap in features while also offering room for expansion, and at a better price. If your goal is saving space, the Mac Mini is a winner. If youd rather get the best deal, there are better options.

Nice introduction into the Mac world
4 Star Review   By member blackcapten - Jan 31, 2008   

Strengths: Small, includes many standard features

Weakness: Has minimal memory and hard drive compared to what's out there

This is a good, relatively inexpensive introduction into the world of MACs. I am using this for both work and play, learning the ins and outs of the newer MAC OS. As a pure Windows guy for years, I've wanted a newer MAC to play with for a while. With the release of Leopard, I figured now was the time. I did own a MAC back in 1999, I think it was a G4. I liked it, but not enough to move permanently away from Windows PCs. I like that there's a lot of basic features built in, such as bluetooth and wireless internet. There's also plenty of USB ports as well as a firewire port. I've heard it could be a pain upgrading anything on this thing. I'd like to upgrade the memory so I hope it's easy. On my old G4, it was quite easy to pop in upgrades with the snap open cases they came with. I didn't feel like paying thousands of dollars for a MAC (don't need a monitor or laptop) so I settled on this mini. I hope Apple continues this line of "mini" computers and offers more systems.

Mac Mini - awesom
5 Star Review   By member nitin_lad - Jan 17, 2008   

Strengths: Size and performance, It's highly portable, All in one

Weakness: Yet to find one

This is my first mac and I am impressed with the capabilities, it's size and performance. The super drive is amazing. It's all in one. The navigation is very good and user friendly. Best part is it's portable. It's like carrying external drive with you.

MacMini 2GHz/120GB/Super Drive/1GBRAM
4 Star Review   By member eciraje - Jan 9, 2008   

Strengths: Small Compact size, i call it Little Monster Machine.

Weakness: Having difficulty to do voice and video chat with Cross platform users. Boot camp allows me to run windows but Bluetooth headset doesnot work. Apple care says they have tested only with Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse.

I bought this for my daughter becase it has more user firendly Parental control Features.I dont need to worry about Viruses anymore. Its Imovie, IDVD and FRONT ROW are the best features.

Great product!!
4 Star Review   By member igami001 - Dec 19, 2007   

Strengths: Size is small, Easy backup from DV video using iDVD

Weakness: Bottom side is hot to use long term

I purchased this item to use DV video back up with Superdrive. And I connected with my TV using DVI to Video adapter. So it means Mac Mini become DVD player in our living room. Also I'm using it with wireless keyboard. It is very useful. Maybe, I will purchase video capture unit then replace my VHS video deck.

Mac Mini 2GHz Core 2 Duo Computer
4 Star Review   By member linsw - Nov 26, 2007   

Strengths: The Mac OSX.

Weakness: Only holds 2GB of memory and came with a 5400 RPM hard drive. Problem with slow Internet loading after upgrading to Leopard. The price is also high compared to PCs.

I finally got my first Mac after using Windows PC for more than I can remember. It is a 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Mac Mini. I also bought an HP W2007 20" LCD screen to go with it. The Mini came well packaged in its little box with a handle, a very well first impression. It came with Mac OSX 10.4 Tiger installed, but it did came with a OSX 10.5 Leopard upgrade DVD. I immediately upgraded it to 10.5 Leopard, because that is what I was waiting for. It took a long time to upgrade, about 1 hour and 30 minutes. After the upgrade, everything was all great just like Windows expect that it feels faster, smoother, and more organized. Things are easy to find and setup. I don't really have anything bad to say about it at first. But, after surfing the web for a while, I noticed that it takes a long time for the page to load and sometime it timeout itself. This happen whether connected to the Internet wirelessly or wired, and the worst thing is that my other Windows PCs have not problems with the Internet at all. On the next day, the Mini was fine when I started using it but same problem happen again after I used it for awhile and that my PCs have no problems at all. I checked the web using my Windows PC in hope to find answers. It seems that I was not along. A lot of people is having the same problem after upgrading to Leopard. They are either looking for solution or waiting and hoping that Apple's next update will fix the problem. Well, too bad for Apple, my first visual impression was good, but the first using/operating impression, which is most important was not so good. My brother told me to change back to Tiger and upgrade later only after Apple came out with an update and that people have reported the problem fixed.
