-This computer looks excellent. The Mini's body hasn't changed since late 2010- and for a good reason. The desktop is tiny, fitting right under my monitor with room to spare. It's sleek and looks good anywhere.
-It's very simple, it's just a box. The removable cover on the bottom is a soft rubber (the same as the panel with all the ports). Due to the removable cover's height and size, the computer appears to be floating about 1/3 an inch above the desk.
-Looks great anywhere and feels nice as well.
-Removable cover makes the RAM easy to upgrade and also gives you more access to the inside so you can clean it out.
-The ports on the back (i.e. headphones) are a bit difficult to access- you have to lean over to look behind the computer or move it.
-The monitor does occasionally flicker during active use (about once a day), but Apple and Intel are aware of the problem and are releasing a fix. It's not very bad.
-The 2.5 GHz i5 is pretty speedy. I've had 15+ tabs running with music playing and a game running (Bastion) and it doesn't slow down.
-Write speed for the HDD is pretty good. 5400 RPM isn't ideal, but it works well for the price.
-4 GB of RAM is a little lacking, but it is easily upgradable. For $85.00 you can get 16 GB of RAM and easily install it yourself: ...Read more ›
My first impressions: Everything was so simple and user friendly from when I first booted it up and walked through registration. It seemed to run very quickly. I upgraded the ram when I first got it to 8gb from the standard 4gb, because of all the reviews on how easy it was to upgrade ram in this comp and the price being very inexpensive. I paid about $40 for 8gb of ram compared to $100 to upgrade through Apple. Installation was super easy.
Also, my wife is a performing artist and needed a quick demo video for a conference she was being considered for. Sadly, we have limited footage of the type we needed. But, one of the reasons we bought the mac was for ease of video editing. It was time to put the new mac to the test. The only footage I had was on a DVD. I had serious doubts about the mac and imovie being able to "rip" footage from a DVD to the comp easily without downloading some complicated software. All I did was insert the disc into the external DVD drive that I already owned. And an import bubble opened immediately to easy capture the footage into imovie!Read more ›
It only comes with 4 GB of RAM, and I would recommend upgrading to at least 8 GB, which is a very easy upgrade (no tools required) and is only about $50 currently (I got 16 GB for $90). The one downside of this computer is the hard drive, because Apple uses a 5400 rpm Hitachi for this model. For basic web browsing and other everyday tasks this is fine, but upgrading mine to an SSD greatly increased performance for my more demanding use. Upgrading the hard drive is more difficult (and probably voids the warranty). I did add a second internal hard drive to this model, but this was a lot more difficult (basically everything has to be removed from the case) and requires the purchase of a hard drive cable and mounting hardware.
No major changes have been made from the previous version, but the internal upgrades make the Mac Mini a much more powerful computer that is powerful enough for most users, but professional applications and tasks like video encoding will be limited by the processor and integrated graphics.
Apple has finally released a firmware update that appears to have fixed the HDMI flickering issue that was experienced by many users, so there are no longer any major problems with this computer.
