James, Mumbles General user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Simple to set up and get working.
Very quiet
Looks fabulous.
Processor has been plenty fast enough for day to day tasks.
Wireless keyboard and track pad are a must
Bad points:
Limited software bundled with the computer, but as it all now lives in the cloud this is only a hic up.
I go the DVD player, but used as a multimedia center it could do with a blu-ray.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The Mac Mini has an amazingly small footprint, is extremely powerful and completely silent compared to my PC tower. Out of the box from switching it on it started up within seconds, detected my wireless network as soon as it was loaded up and I was online within minutes of plugging it in.

The MacMini comes bundled with iMovie, iDVD, iTunes, iPhoto and Garageband so there were a few programmes to get me started on the Mac side, but dividing the hard drive into two partitions to install Windows7 on the second partition and run the Mac as a PC when I need to through bootcamp was also a synch
Bad points:
My only complaint is that it requires a DVI-D or HDMI connection and you need to buy an optional VGA cable.

It is a well built classy product in a very small box.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
works out the box with minimal problems
the mac mini footprint is really small and it fits in easily under a tv as a media centre or as an incredibly small replacement for a desktop system
Bad points:
almost impossible to set up wirelessly so you do need a mouse and keyboard to get started
the 2 gig RAM that came with the unit I purchased is inadequate for anything other than simple tasks

Confirmed purchaser General user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It's very good looking. Takes up very little space, and sits - very quietly - on my desk. It's also very powerful and quick for its size
Bad points:
As it's an Apple/Mac it is expensive, but I guess you get what you pay for!
