MacBook Air Rev. B mini-review

 

We've spent a bit of quality time with the new MacBook Air, and while there's little on the surface to denote a change, Apple did quite a bit under the hood to turn this into a serious laptop -- of sorts. Full disclosure: we (meaning a certain Paul...

Much faster than earlier version ; Improved boot time ; mini DisplayPort plug

Fixes problems that shouldn't have been ; Could use a 3G option ; Still very expensive

Apple Mac mini (M1, Late 2020) Review

 

New, lower starting price ; Much improved overall performance from 2018 model ; Especially promising bench results with native "Universal" apps ; Surprisingly quiet and cool operation under load

Boosting RAM and SSD capacity at purchase time is pricey ; Fewer Thunderbolt ports than previous Mac mini ; Memory no longer upgradable post-purchase

With a new lower starting price and Apple's straining-at-the-leash M1 CPU, the Mac mini is far and away the most polished, potent tiny desktop in its class.

With the Mac Mini 2018, Apple teaches an old design new tricks

 

It's back to being an impressive mini PC now that Apple's finally updated it.

Apple wrests excellent performance out of even the low-end Core i3 processor in the base configuration. The small system remains unobtrusive. The four USB-C/Thunderbolt ports and 10Gb Ethernet option provide for more storage with fast external data...

You're stuck with integrated graphics unless you fork over the bucks and desk space for an eGPU. Relatively high entry price once you spring for the accessories and a display. It no longer serves as a budget option despite being the most affordable Mac.

The Apple Mac Mini 2018 continues to serve as a satisfying, gets-the-job-done desktop system that delivers surprising value when you want something designed to be seen and not heard.

Apple Mac mini (2-GHz Core 2 Duo)

 

The Apple Mac mini has been around for a while, but it's still the trailblazer for compact, energy-efficient desktops.

Compact. Energy efficient. Quiet. Dual-core performance. Wireless 802.11g and Bluetooth built in. New iLife '08. Mac Os X 10.5 Leopard makes the mini and iMac ; officially ; Windows compatible.

Only 1GB of RAM standard (2GB would be better, especially if you use Boot Camp). No TV tuner. No keyboard or mouse included. This is the only wireless Mac without 802.11n.

Apple Mac Mini (2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo) review: Apple Mac Mini (2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo)

 

Apple Mac Mini (2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo)

Fast new Core 2 Duo processor compares well with competing Windows desktops; useful iLife '08 software; supersmall chassis remains unique in the mainstream desktop market.

Comparable slim Windows desktops offer more features for the dollar, as well as expandability; no information from Apple on whether you'll have to pay for a Leopard upgrade two months from now; free phone support for only 90 days.

The Mac Mini remains unique as the smallest mainstream desktop, but competition from Dell and HP has narrowed the gap in features while also offering room for expansion, and at a better price. If your goal is saving space, the Mac Mini is a winner. If...

On the other hand, neither of those systems is as expensive as the Mac Mini. Both Dell and HP let you build comparable desktops for $620 or so, including wireless networking capabilities, mice and keyboards (which the Mac Mini lacks), and in Dell's...

Apple's Mac Mini Core Duo

 

It looks great, it's easy to use, and it executes the home-theater-PC concept better than perhaps any other computer. If you can live with its mediocre video image quality, Apple's new Intel-based Mac Mini could be the home-theater PC of your dreams.

Inexpensive; good choice for budget shoppers or people adding a second computer; Front Row media software and new ports make it more useful as a home-theater PC; easy to connect with an entertainment system; can run Windows via Boot Camp; attractive...

Video output to televisions shows poor image processing; Apple software still catching up to Intel processors; small hard drive; remote control has limited functionality; few upgrade options.

Apple packs more media-specific features into the Mac Mini to make an inexpensive and useful entertainment-room computer. It's tremendously easy to use, although it surprised us with poor image processing.
