First off, opening a Mac Mini on your own violates the warranty! This is an absolutely ridiculous policy on the part of Apple and harkens back to the days of the old Mac 128K. But I plowed on, and found myself stunned by what I needed to open the case: a spackling knife! I'm trying to upgrade a computer, not a house!
Anyway, I get the case off, and am amazed at what a tight fit everything is inside. Things are even more cramped than in a notebook. The directions I found online on how to proceed at this point had me confused and concerned that I was about to convert this Mac into a $600 doorstop, but I finally found the screws I had to remove (note: they are the 4 black screws in the four corners of the mount that holds the Combo drive in place above the motherboard, after you pop off the WiFi antenna). CAREFULLY, I set the Combo drive aside, removed the old memory, and installed two 1GB modules I bought off Amazon from Crucial.
I put everything back together, plugged a DVI-to-HDMI cable from the Mac to my hi-def TV, powered on and: nothing. Panic-stricken, I swapped the original memory back in place, and everything worked fine. Putting the Crucial memory in place: nothing. So I had bad after-market memory. I went back to the original memory, and I had a working computer.
Setup at this point was almost painless.Read more ›
Installed Microsoft XP using Bootcamp.Install was a snap.no issues Apple have given all the drivers needed to run Windows.Both works fine
Fits your desktop
Installing Additonal RAM.It is a pain to open the box to do it.
Overall if you are looking to switch to MAC from Windows then go for this.
To add further regret to my decision, the Ebay seller is taking a month to send it. Amazon has free shipping and I'm positive they'd beat that shipping time.
Either way: viva la Mac!
The computer is really small and it sits on the corner of my desk. I put my office phone on top of it to hide it from view. The phone fits perfectly atop of the Mac mini. I have attached a Windows USB keyboard and it works fine. The windows logo key becomes the Apple logo key, and the alt key becomes the command key. I also attached to one of the USB port a 2-button w/scroll wheel optical mouse. It works fine, including the right-click. I never will understand why Mac users prefer a 1-button mouse, but I digress.
I have a 22" monitor hooked up to my Mac mini. It is a 22" Samsung 225BW monitor with 1680x1050 resolution and looks nice. I think I read it can support up to a 24" monitor, however, don't taze me, bro!
The model I purchased came with OS X 10.4 and it worked fine out of the box. I then upgraded to OS X 10.5 by doing a full install, which means it wiped out the hard drive and started from scratch. I have read people having some problems doing the upgrade method so I avoided that method.
As a standalone machine, it works fine. Performance is fine for only 1GB of RAM. The network was easy to set up. My network printers were easy to add. Installing software is as simple as dragging-and-dropping.
In conclusion, I still think the Mac is overpriced for the specs you get. For the amount spent on this machine, you could buy better hardware. With the Apple Mac mini, you are basically paying for looks, size, and support. For this I would give it 4 stars.
I did have some Leopard OS problems, but I will post my Leopard OS problems on the Amazon Leopard OS review page since the little machine physically works fine.Read more ›
