Pros Small, silent, good looking
Cons difficult upgrade. Hard drive died during waranty, replaced free
Summary Recommend it to anybody
Pros overall- a great second CPU
Cons slow HD, 2 USB's
Summary First of all, if you are a windows user, dont be scared of this little monster just because it is a mac. MACS ARE BETTER THAN WINDOWS!!! if you dont believe me go around your office and ask any sound minded person that switched. i can tell you now that you will be happy you switched. i know i am! if you are still scaried than go to a apple store and ask one of those guys to show you around. something new does not make it a bad thing. for you windows users, this mac was made especially for you! its small so it can sit next to your PC (so you are never to far from your PC). it doesnt come with all the other stuff (key board, mouse, monitor) because you already have it. Just think, a world without Viruses, spyware, and third party firewalls!!! say good bye to Norton and say hello to MacOSX!! you will be glad you did.
Pros Size, expanded usbs,
Cons None so far
Summary I purchased the larger memory mac mini with the intel chip and 4 usbs. Overall I love it. I have being using pcs for 10 years and this was the first computer I ever bought. As a mac newbie it is taking some getting use to but I love the system. It's quick, reliable and the size means I can hide it in my office.
Pros Tiny, Silent, Fast, Virus Free, best for media lovers, NO VIRUSES, SPY WARE, and extremely low adware Thank God
Cons EVERYTHING WORKS ON USB. Many of the applications still only are available for Windows. Virtual PC fixes this, but will set you back 250$$.
Summary Extremely cool computer. Easy to use, and the new OSX is very nice. Just remember, your going to have to add 100$ to the price of the mini mac to maybe have to buy a compatible mouse, keyboard, or printer. Dont get it if you are a gamer, or want use heavy duty hardware/ software. Other than that, it is great.
PS- This is my 1st Mac, and I love it. Make the same transition, you wont regret it...
Pros Quite Stylish...compact, powerful, new operating system
Cons not that many USB ports, can be pulled off your desk by stepping on the cables
Summary A great computer if you strap it to your desk so you dont step on the cables. haha but its really no big deal. Great computer burns DVD's and is another great product from apple. I tried one of those referall sites and got mine free. u can try too..http://minimacs.freepay.com/?r=27123781
