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

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 (2.0GHz 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...

Apple Mac Mini 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

 

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.

Apple Mac mini (Intel)

 

The new Apple Mac mini has the Intel Core Duo processor, and adds Front Row, wireless 802.11g, and Bluetooth. It's a good fit as a media extender or a second system for living room or bedroom use.

Airport Extreme (802.11g Wi-Fi) and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR now standard. Compact, sleek, quiet, and low-priced. Can use accessories from previous generation Mac mini. Four USB 2.0 ports and an audio input (finally). Intel Core Duo processor.

No TV tuner. 512MB of RAM is good, 1GB would be better. Core Duo means some incompatibility with older software (such as "Classic" apps running OS 9.) No keyboard or mouse included. ; Watch the Apple Mac Mini Video Review!

with 80gb standard and an option for a 120gb hard drive, the mac mini is now an improved base station for your ipod's music, though it uses notebook hard drives, which are typically slower (5,400 rpm, rather than 7,200 rpm) than desktop ones, though in...

Apple Mac mini

 

If you've been thinking of switching to a Mac but have been put off by the high price of a new system, Apple wants you.

Sleek design. Tiny chassis. Most affordable Mac yet. Built-in Bluetooth and 802.11g wireless available. Quiet, single-fan system.

Base price ($499) does not include keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, or wireless; RAM and hard drive space are barely adequate. No audio input. Limited internal expansion.
