Budget Apple desktop computer

 

The Mac mini is the only Apple desktop that costs less than $1,000. Two versions are available and both review well, although critics prefer the 2.5 GHz version, with its 4 GB of RAM and discrete AMD Radeon HD 6630M graphics processor, over...

Speedy Processor, discrete graphics processor, hDMI and Thunderbolt output, vastly improved performance

More expensive than competing PCs, no optical drive, doesn't include peripherals

Hot New CPU Pushes High End Higher

 

The new Power Mac G5 dual 2.5GHz is finally here, along with new versions of its dual-2GHz and dual-1.8GHz siblings, and it delivers a substantial, if not earthshaking, speedup. The improvement is noticeable even in mundane tasks like unstuffing files,...

Appreciably faster than any other Mac ; huge memory and hard-drive capacity ; 8x SuperDrive ; FireWire 800 ; Gigabit Ethernet ; PCI-X

Extremely large size ; relatively pricey

Apple MacBook Air 1.8Ghz review

 

There's no denying that Apple has caused something of a stir with its MacBook Air (£2028 inc. VAT), the thinnest laptop ever made. Measuring 325 x 221 x 20mm, it's impressively stylish and will certainly turn a fair few heads.

Aearance ; Powerful rocessors ; Real ower ortable ; Wonderful keyboard

Pricey ; Struggles with high-end tasks ; SSD caacity ; Thunderbolt a luxury

Apple MacBook Air (1.8GHz)

 

The design is revolutionary, but Apple's MacBook Air will appeal to a smaller, more specialised audience than the standard MacBook, thanks to a stripped-down set of connections and features.

Incredibly thin yet surprisingly sturdy ; New touchpad gesture controls are very useful ; Remote optical drive makes living without a built-in drive much easier

Very limited connectivity ; Slower than other MacBooks ; SSD hard-drive option is ridiculously expensive and standard hard drive is small ; Battery is not replaceable

Apple Mac Mini 1.8GHz

 

Mac OS desktop with 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo chip, Nvidia GeForce 9400M graphics card, 1-2GB RAM and 120-320GB hard drive. Five USB ports come unadorned with mouse, keyboard, monitor, webcam or speakers. Draft-n Wi-FI and Bluetooth. iLife 09 software....

Flat-sharing urban professionals and well-heeled young parents will adore the Mini’s stripped down style and plug-and-play simplicity. Anyone else might decide to sacrifice some design kudos and enjoy a cheaper, more powerful Windows system instead...

The computer was slightly damaged in shipping, but was packed really well. This computer is heavy. I could have been anywhere in the country, but I happen to live in the next town from the company that sold it. I can't say enough about how professional...

Basically all the stuff that makes the Mac universe so great to be in. The price was good too at $199

This is why I only give it a 4/5 ; Power PC type processor is not really supported anymore, can only be updated to a certain point that makes it not work on some levels. Be aware of this if you absolutely can't live without NetFlix and some other...
