Review: Apple Mac mini 1.42GHz

 

I ordered a Mac mini in mid-February to serve as a replacement and companion for my iBook G3 and work-issued iBook G4. I opted to get the 1.42 GHz model with some upgrades (512 MB RAM, SuperDrive, AirPort, Bluetooth). With a display, keyboard, and...

Nice collection of included software, much better in appearance and included hardware than budget Windows boxes, decent performance for most tasks

Needs more RAM, graphics card on the weak side, relies on relatively expensive and slower 2.5″ hard disk

The Mac mini is about as close to perfection as a budget/home PC gets.

Apple SuperDrive Mac Mini (Superdrive)

 

The Apple SuperDrive Mac Mini addresses some of the shortcomings of its US$499 (S$839.04) predecessor, making it a well-rounded home PC at its base configuration.

Affordable; extremely compact; whisper quiet; ships standard with 512MB of memory; includes iLife '05

G4 processor, not G5; peripherals--even keyboard and mouse--add to the bill if you don't already own them; case can't be easily opened; slow hard drive; only two USB 2.0 ports

The Apple SuperDrive Mac Mini addresses some of the shortcomings of its S$928 predecessor, making it a well-rounded home PC at its base configuration.

"Excellent, especially if you just add a couple of features"

 

I owned this Apple since the day it was released. After adding a Bluetooth/Airport card, a external harddisck and dvd burner, wireless keyboard, this computer is still affordable and looks perfect! I love working on it, it's amazing that such a small...

Consumer review by:

"Small and powerfully built"

 

I personally think it is priced a little on the high side with the price war going on at sim lim sq. Now the computer system should be at a lower price by at least another 10%. Other than that apple mini should be an in thing. Very lifely interface.
