Pros Footprint and Portability
Cons Hardware and Design
Summary Steve Jobs is again up to his old tricks ripping off his loyal Apple followers. This time it's a new Mac Mini for $699?? Give me a break. It is just a basic 2.4 dual core with 2 gig of ram, hard drive and one optical drive with built in video. Wow!!!! Who does Jobs think he is? I could put together the same system for half the price, throw in a keyboard and mouse, SATA II hard drive, more memory, better video and cables running either Windows 7 or Linux. The only and I mean only advantage this mini has is size compared to most ATX and mATX desktops. So, here we go again, just like Lemmings, Apple people will run to the store and put down their money on an inferior product just because it's an Apple product made by the Steve Jobs empire. I dual boot Ubuntu 10.4 and Windows 7 with my dual core system and it smokes (and I mean smokes) any inferior Apple machine; can't be more happier and my wallet likes it too.I'm not bashing Apple, just telling the truth. This is an overpriced, low quality mini desktop. The only real value it has over others is the operating system and being, shall we say, cute. Other than that, I rank it along with the overpriced iPad - a toy, just a toy.
