"Worthless until Lion issues are fixed."1.0 starson by Nena1510
Pros: Improved graphics, selectable processor upgrades, some of the features of Lion sound useful (Autosave and Verisions).
Cons: Ships only with the new operating system, Lion and downgrading to Snow Leopard is not recommended. Lion does not support Java natively (it must be downloaded as an add on and does not work with all plugins). I don't have enough time or energy to list al
Summary: I had been greatly anticipating the release of the new Mac mini. I have an older model that is just a bit limited due to processor speed and graphics. However, this little machine can be used for more than an entertainment device. I use mine for data analysis (OS X is UNIX based), design layout, and publishing. I was so looking forward to the rumored i5 processor, and low and behold, I can even get the i7. The lack of an integrated SuperDrive is an easy work around, but indicates to me where Apple is heading - forcing everything to be bought online - preferably (by them) from the App Store. The top three out of four features on Apple's Lion site involve App management. Thus, the feeling I get from Apple's latest offering is a unit designed to function as a shopping channel, social media kiosk, or entertainment toy.
