Mac mini (mid 2010) review

Apple Mac Mini (Spring 2010) review: Apple Mac Mini (Spring 2010)

 

Apple Mac Mini (Spring 2010)

Sleek, living-room-ready aluminum chassis; HDMI video output makes it easy to connect an HDTV; SD card slot; user-accessible RAM; handles Web-based HD video with no trouble; best-in-class case design.

Puny storage capacity for its price; no Blu-ray hurts in a pricier living room system like this.

Apple's new Mac Mini includes an elegant new design and some long asked-for features, including HDMI output and user-accessible memory. The system still faces a value challenge for its given specs, but Apple has done enough to improve the Mac Mini's...

Apple Mac mini (HDMI)

 

The Apple Mac mini (HDMI) is an all-around improvement with a new unibody aluminum chassis to match the rest of the Macintosh line. The mini is the mainstream, compact PC you've been searching for, and it defines its category.

Super compact design. Aluminum unibody construction. SD slot supports new SDXC cards. Included HDMI-to-DVI adapter and HDMI port. Extremely low power usage. GreenTech Approved. Internal power supply. Accessible memory slots. More 3D power than anything...

Still no Blu-ray. Hard drive is hard to upgrade. No eSATA port

Say what you want about the new Mac Mini's features or its price, but the new chassis further secures Apple's standing as the best enclosure designer in the computing business. The new aluminum case carries with it all of the uber-industrial charm...

Apple Mac Mini (Spring 2010) review

 

Apple's new Mac Mini answers a lot of the issues that have plagued the series over the years. An HDMI port helps it fulfill its potential as a living room system. An SD card slot gives a nod to digital photographers. A removable panel on the bottom...

Apple Mac mini Review (Mid 2010)

 

For the first time since its introduction in 2005 Apple has significantly updated the design of the Mac mini. The new model is thinner, although it requires a bit more surface area. Basically a 13-inch MacBook Pro without the display, this new $699 Mac...

The role of the Mac mini has changed dramatically over the past five years. What once was a way for Apple to tempt users into trying OS X is now a fairly expensive, niche Mac. As an HTPC the new Mac mini is great. It works just as well as any of the...

Mac mini 2010 review

 

Apple's Mac mini was always the compact computer with a few frustrations. Perfectly scaled for doing duty as your HTPC, the absence of a native HDMI port meant hooking the Mac mini up in your living room was never quite as easy as we'd like to expect...

Apple Mac Mini 2011 Review

 

The 2011 Apple Mac mini is alive and kicking. What with the Cupertino-based company dazzling the tech world with iPhones, iPads and MacBook Airs, the Mac mini seems to be the forgotten child in Apple's product portfolio. Still with the latest revision...

Tiny, great design, Good performance, Thunderbolt port

Heats up, No optical drive
