The machine works great and is very silent.
Leo Lamb
It runs Leopard just fine, boots quickly, and has no difficulty with basic computer software: safari or firefox, iphoto, itunes, open office, etc.

I will try to get a video review so you can see and understand how everything works so well with the mac mini.

I bought this mini to replace a 1.42 GHz G4 mini that just couldn't handle my 6,000+ pictures in iPhoto anymore. It took 1-2 minutes before I could do anything in iPhoto after I opened it.
When I got this machine, I immediately replaced the two 512 MB sticks with two 1 GB sticks that I bought online for about $35 each (much cheaper than Apple). I also had an existing 200GB external drive which is the same form factor as the mini and sits underneath it in addition to a Belkin USB hub (same form factor as well), since you can never have enough USB 2.0 ports.
The machine is great and much faster than my old Power PC mini. iPhoto opens very quickly and I can immediately browse through all my film rolls, even with other programs, such as Safari and Eudora, running. I am glad I waited until Apple changed from the Core Duo to the Core 2 Duo, although I am not sure how much difference there is between the newer and older Intel mini.
I also love the included remote for iLife. It's nice to be able to browse through iTunes, iPhoto, etc. without the keyboard/mouse.
There are rumors that Apple will discontinue this little machine soon, but I hope they don't as it is a great buy for anyone who already has a nice monitor/LCD. I would like to get a 24" iMac but they are too expensive and I would much rather just buy a Mac mini and hook it up to a 20" or 24" external LCD since I don't like all-in-one devices (printers or computers).

Update (11/2011): This Mac mini is still going strong. I have since upgraded the HDD to a 250 GB, 320 GB and recently a 1 TB drive. The upgrades went smootly and I even installed Bootcamp and Windows 7 (needed for work) onto a 300 GB partition without any problems.

I have a 3 year old powerbook and this cheap mac mini runs circles around it!! Even though it's completely low end, it's still fast enough to watch 720P HDTV and movies.

I upgraded it with 3GB of ram (though you have to do that yourself, apple will only install 2GB, but 50% more ram makes it MUCH faster. (the max it will recognize is 3.3GB but you'd have to install 4gb for that.. so it's kind of a waste)

You can EASILY hook it up to an HDTV through DVI-DVI, DVI-HDMI, or DVI-VGA. I do this when I download either a broadcast HDTV show or to watch a recorded show or movie from my cable box. You can record a digital stream to the mac mini through the Firewire connection of your cable box.

I recommend getting an external hard drive, and just using the internal drive for applications.
It seems to keep things snappy.

Anyway, I bought this mainly because I need to do 4 illustrations at 4 feet by 6 feet, I used Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, and Corel Painter X all at the same time with documents ipen in each. I saved them as pdfs, and really never had to wait for any functions.

Only 3D and Video apps take time to render, everything else in real time.

So if you want a fairly inexpensive desktop computer (and understand you have to know a bit about computers to do any sort of upgrades) this is really pretty solid.

This little Mac CPU is perfect for people who want a powerful but inexpensive CPU without the frills. Just 2.5" high and 6.5" square, it fits almost anywhere: on a desk, in a drawer, on a narrow shelf. The unit comes with a Mac SuperDrive for burning and playing DVD/CDs, a remote control, BlueTooth technology, the iLife Suite (iPhoto, iTunes, Garage Band, Photo Booth, iMovie, etc.), and the newest OS X Leopard (on CDs, not installed.) That's it. You have to buy your own keyboard, mouse, monitor, and anything else you'd like to add.

Pros:

-- This little guy is fast and reliable. The 1 GB RAM is good enough for most users, although you can expand to 2 GB. (See Cons.)

-- Size. No more towers!

-- Leopard is utterly fantastic. Make sure you take the "tour" to fully appreciate its capabilities and features since many aren't immediately obvious. It allows easy sharing of files within a network, wireless or otherwise, automatics back-ups to an external hard drive (purchase separately) that can be accessed according to a specific date and time, and in-network video conferencing (again, you have to supply the web cam.) My favorite feature is setting my computer to turn on at the same time every day so it's ready to go when I walk into my home office.

-- The no-frills package allows users to buy their preferred size of monitor. Since monitors bought separately usually cost far less than what Apple charges, this ends up being a cost saver as well. The Apple keyboard works best with the Mac mini since there's a special key for ejecting CD/DVDs, but any keyboard will do.

Cons

-- The memory upgrade is not as easy as it should be. Look online for detailed instructions, including removing the Blue Tooth antenna.

Model: MB138LL/A Verified Purchase
I have been a Windows hacker for over 25 years. In that time I have owned many Intel/Windows based computers, several of which I built myself. But I always felt that Windows was a pain, not to mention unreliable. The latest Vista version is a perfect case in point. Hence my decision to invest in the 1.83GHz Mac Mini to see what the fuss with Apple and Leopard was all about. All I have to say is "Wow". This is one nice computer, especially with a couple of minor upgrades that I did myself in about 30 minutes (1G to 2G memory, 80G 5400 RPM hard drive to 100G 7200 RPM hard drive). Coupled with Fusion, which allows all of my critical Windows apps (Office for example) to run virtualized under Leopard, this little jewel is a very solid, impressive unit. It even fit right in with my home network consisting of three desktops, a laptop, and a home server. I will always use Windows for some complicated jobs, but for everyday use, I will be using this Mini and the accompanying Leopard. They are a pleasure to use. I only regret not having tried Apple sooner. If you are even remotely considering Apple, I highly recommend this unit.
