“2012 Spec Apple Mac Mini”

Written on: 28/03/2013 by diablo944 (16 reviews written)

I have been a PC user since the days when windows 98 was still new. The move to a Mac was always something I had avoided, mostly due to cost and software limitations (as in not a lot of it around for Macs). Recently I ran into an issue with my PC and a new GoPro camera. It just wouldnt play the video back from the camera without converting it first. Lots of hair pulling and forum reading finally made me look at a Mac as an option. The budget wouldn't stretch to the higher priced power macs, so… Read Full Review

“New mac user”

Written on: 26/05/2011 by samspade79 (9 reviews written)

A mac purchase was required to do iPhone development for my current company. Being a staunch PC lover I was not looking forward to using one (having had the displeasure of using a mac before). However I have been pleasantly surprised so far. The mac was easy to setup (literally just plug it in). It's fast to load, fast to use, and the OS looks beautiful. The downside is that nothing works quite the way you expect. Buttons in different places, the concept that a program never actually quits… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/10/2008 by austinbarry (3 reviews written)

I got a mac mini thinking that it would make a great heart of a home entertainment system. The size is certainly right for this. Installation and migration (from another mac) was a piece of cake. In fact all I did was connect my vintage macbook and 30 minutes later all my programs (yes!), settings, etc were copied. At home, I am mostly doing email, web browsing, managing my photo collection, and managing my ever increasing audio collection, tasks which the mac is well suited. Any application… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/11/2007 by kjs82 (1 review written)

I'm a computer science student - so i am fairly handy with software etc.

The mac mini is great as a standalone system, but when connected to peripherals you get very basic options (if they work at all), and many websites and other applications fail to interact properly with mac based browsers and other software.

If you have powerPC software - some of it runs fine on Intel - others crash or fail to respond.

If you use Skype, then your microphone won't work in the line-in socket without a… Read Full Review

“I generally love my Mac Mini, it's simple to use and...”

Written on: 11/05/2007 by sandmansam (12 reviews written)

I generally love my Mac Mini, it's simple to use and does everything you would expect from a full size PC, in a box the fraction of the size, it is also much faster then you would expect for such a small machine.

The software that comes with the mini is generally excellent but I must admit I added MS Office to my one, well worth the extra cost.

Like all Mac Computers it has an excellent built in firewall and net filtering software, enough security for most home users, you can however add more… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/01/2007 by spellacy29 (5 reviews written)

I've owned my Mac Mini for over a year and I wonder why I ever bothered with a PC. It performs beautifully, very rarely freezes, isn't bothered by viruses nearly as much as a PC and produces excellent work. Quality, style and exclusivity are built in and once you get used to them, they're a joy to use… Read Full Review

The Apple Mac Mini works straight out of the box, turn it on complete the few steps and away you go. Connected straight into my wireless, remote is great for playing music and watching dvds. The Apple O/S is so easy to use and looks great. I had a pc in my room it made so much noise the Apple is very quite and looks fantastic… Read Full Review

“Apple Mac Mini - I support computers, so I need both...”

Written on: 03/06/2005 by gerrards (4 reviews written)

Apple Mac Mini - I support computers, so I need both PC's and a Mac. Unable to afford a standalone G4 I've had a cumbersome eMac taking up far too much desk space. Until the Mac Mini, that is. It was an impulse buy the weekend it came out and I haven't regretted one moment of it. With its footprint only a little bigger than a CD case I've been able to use my Windows keyboard, mouse and TFT screen via a KVM switch, and so have reclaimed a continent of desk space.

The Mac Mini is simplicity… Read Full Review
