If like me you have been thinking about moving from a PC to a Mac then you may have come across the The Mac Mini. But what is a Mac Mini? What does it do and does it really love up to the hype when it was first introduced?
Without question the thing that stands out about this computer in the world of desktop computing is the size and weight. It is just 1.4 inches tall and an amazing 7.7 inches wide and 7.7 inches deepand it weighs in at just 3.0 pounds.
At that size and weight it is very portable. So wherever you have a screen, keyboard and mouse set up you can attach the Mini Mac and you are ready to go. So if you want to move between home and office or even between homes, you can move the Mac Mini itself. Again the size means that it will take up very little space on your desk.
Designed using a unibody aluminum case it also comes with an HDMI video port. Quite a lot of people have welcomed the addition of the video port because it means that they can use it as a home theater system. It makes it very similar to Apple TV, but much more powerful.
If you are trying to be greener in your computing then you are going to like the Mini Mac! Because of the small size and the components used it's also extremely energy efficient. You will find that it takes less power to run than other desktop computers, including other Apple Macs! It is also made using recyclable materials., which gives it big bonus points for me!
