Both the mid-level Mac Mini and the server version have the same quad core processor, but the entry level Mac Mini is still a dual core. Why stick with a dual core processor desktop when you can have one with a quad core processor? So I got the mid-level model because I don't need a server, and other than the server's two hard drives, the mid-level Mini and the server model are exactly the same (e.g., same processor and same graphics card).
More on the graphics card: as noted earlier, ALL of the Mac Minis this year come with an integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics card. This is a much better card than last year's Intel HD 3000 graphics card, although some might want a discrete card for gaming. One thing I noticed about the Intel HD 4000 card in this year's Mac Mini is that it gives you 512 mb of video ram with only 4 GB of RAM installed. To my knowledge, all other Apple computers need at least 8 GB of RAM installed to get 512 mb of video ram from the HD 4000 card. This is a nice surprise.Read more ›
SETUP: Easy setup is a hallmark of the Mac and my Mini was tweaked and operational in an hour. Installing the Crucial CT2C8G3S160BM, 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3-12800) CL11 SODIMM 204-Pin 1.35V/1.5V Memory Modules took 5 minutes: twist off the bottom cover, puck out old RAM, press in the new and replace the cover. I had a Carbon Copy clone of my Mac Pro HD on SSD and plugged it into the FW800 port of the Mini, using Migration Assistant to import settings, iTunes/Aperture folders, identity and apps. The apps transferred complete with serial numbers. My address books, email accounts and email were there, just like I left them on the old computer. Even the desktop looked the same, right down to the wallpaper and files I left out! A pro audio app with copy protection, e.g., Bias Peak Pro 7, needed to be re-authenticated. My work files were on external Firewire drives so I simply plugged them into the Mini. If you're okay with the supplied iWork apps you could be up and running in minutes.
I/O: Having four USB3 ports and one each of Thunderbolt, Firewire, HDMI and Gigabit Ethernet made for easy connection of new and legacy devices. Wish it had two Thunderbolt ports and/or an eSATA port but then there is a reason it's called a Mini. An integral SD card reader is included, albeit the rear panel is not a handy location. It read my SanDisk Extreme SD cards like a champ.Read more ›
However, being a graphic designer, I knew that I still wanted Mac OS to be a major part of my workflow. I considered a Macbook Pro, but didn't want to commit well over $2,000 to something with little to no upgradability. That brought me to the Mac Mini. I always knew about the product, but never took it seriously until I read some of the reviews for the latest 2012 model. After reading about its easily upgradable RAM and hard drive, coupled with the updated Intel graphics, I decided that the Mini would likely be the perfect partner to my PC and purchased the base $799 model from my local Apple store.
I could not be happier with the decision.
I immediately ordered the Corsair 16 GB RAM kit that Amazon recommended in the sidebar, and installed it (with zero issues) when it arrived the next day. I should note, though, that I did play around with the Mini a bit with the stock 4 GB of RAM. It was very snappy, and perfectly adequate for web browsing, e-mail, and listening to music. However, it got a bit sluggish when it came to chomping on Adobe CS6.
With the new RAM installed, however, this machine is lightning fast. A typical workflow for me consists of running (and simultaneously utilizing) a handful of apps: Sparrow/Mail, Safari, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Numbers, a text editor, and Pandora or Spotify. The Mini is absolutely making good use of the RAM, with about 4.Read more ›

I own one of these. Its a quad core. The current ones are all dual core. If you are doing compute intensive stuff, the 2012 model is better. Read morePublished 6 months ago by macs_forever
