Mac Mini Reviews – Mac Mini is the least expensive OS X computer, and its performance is on par with Macs that cost twice as much. Mac Mini provides an alternative to Windows-based home computer systems. Its slight design and wireless abilities make it a capable alternative.
The Mac Mini (marketed and branded by Apple with lowercase ‘mini’ as Mac mini) is a small form factor desktop computer manufactured by Apple Inc. Like earlier Mini-ITX PC designs, it is 7.7 inches (200 mm) square and 1.4 inches (36 mm) tall. It weighs 2.7 pounds (1.2 kg). Before the mid-2011 revision, all models, except the Late 2009 and Mid 2010 server models, came with an internal optical disc drive. Models pre-2010 used an external power supply and were narrower but taller at 2.0 × 6.5 × 6.5 inches (51 × 165 × 165 mm). The Mac Mini is one of three desktop computers in the current Macintosh lineup, the other two being the iMac and Mac Pro, although it generally uses components usually featured in laptops, hence its small size.
