Richard, Grimsby Music & entertainment fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
As I DJ I find the Mac Mini very useful as there are ample USB slots on the back of the Mini for everything I need keyboard, mouse, usb mixer and desk light.
Bad points:
Doesn't come supplied with a VGA cable for connecting to a monitor, had to buy separate very annoying indeed when you finally get it through the post and realise you can't use it because it doesn't come with an industry-standard cable.

Manufacturer's Description

Better, faster performance

Full-size features. Pint-size package.
A faster processor, more memory, more hard drive space and more power fit inside one small square. And Mac mini makes room for even more.

Memory and processors.

Mac mini is anything but mini under its hood. With either 2GB or 4GB of memory, Mac mini gives you twice as much memory as the previous generation. So now you can run more applications at the same time. You also get a 2.26GHz or a 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, a blazing-fast 1066MHz frontside bus and 3MB of L2 cache.

Graphics.

The NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics processor in every Mac mini gives you outstanding graphics performance. It brings pure power to the latest 3D games and graphics-intensive applications. And youll notice a big difference when you work with high-resolution photos and high-definition video.
