Awesome product

Super quiet and efficient Mac Mini

 

My PC seems to hang quite a bit with Photoshop. My friends recommended me to move to Mac. It took me a long time until now to make a move. A decision was wise as I can see it in just one day.

Wicked Fast

 

Great way to great a powerful Mac for under a grand! I use it with an ASUS HDMI monitor and it looks great. I wish they put a Headphone jack and USB on the front...no big deal but it would be helpful.
