"For my first Mac, I'm very happy"4.0 starson by Larry Launstein Jr
Pros: Ease of use, many things built in, capability of running Windows and Mac software - in different partitions
Cons: Apple still needs to try to find a way to make their computers totally cross compatible-so both Mac and Windows programs work seamlessly.
Summary: I run iMacs in class, and run my Mac Mini at home. I am very happy with what I have seen from the Mac Mini so far, but I did encounter problems with CDs getting stuck in the SuperDrive, twice requiring me to have it serviced. It works fine now. I found out it was the quality of the CDs, not the drive, that was causing the problem. Just don't put cheap CDs in there!
I have 1GB in it, and run the Adobe Creative Suite 2 just fine. I also recommend this as a home-entertainment product, but I have heard it does not handle games very well. But then, I bought it for graphic design, not for games.
And yes, you can buy a Superdrive for this computer, since I have one that not only plays, but records DVDs.
And now there are a lot of add-ons you can get, such as an additional hard drive (with more ports). Find out more at http://www.123macmini.com/
