5.0 out of 5 stars 2009 Mac Minio, November 27, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Apple Mac mini MC238LL/A Desktop (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Personal Computers)
This is my 1st Mac. I've been building my own PC's for over the past 15 years. I purchased this as a 2nd computer to check e-mails and log into my work from home. Its great! Like the APPLE commercials, it just works. I am still getting used to OSX; there are things I like better about Snow Leopard and things I like better about Win 7. I still use both at home, but find myself using the Mac more than my PC. Without installing any 3rd party software I did have a few applications crash (e-mail, address book), but that is not the norm. The crash did not bring down the whole system though, and overall I find the system very stable I've also installed 3rd party software and found that very easy to do (coming from PC background). From my experience my home built Win 7 pro 64 bit is just as stable. The Mac Mini uses very little power and generates NO heat vs my PC that I can cook things on. I recommend getting base Mac mini and upgrading HD and RAM yourself considering the premium Apple charges (though I understand this voids your warranty). I have been recommending the Mac mini's to my friends/colleagues. Its a great system that does not take up a lot of space. I paired it with the new Apple bluetooth keyboard and the Logitech Performance MX mouse so I can mouse on my sofa. After using this system for a few weeks I find myself wanting a MacBook pro!

Yes those Macbook Pros are sweet! I was a PC builder too. Now I have the Macbook Aluminum unibody. I have mine hooked to a 24 inch Dell when I'm not on the road with it. Wireless keyboard and mouse and I just bought a Bookarch to put the thing in. Very cool. OS X is a rock.
