Review of the Mac Mini
Don't forget to pick up the monitor, mouse and keyboard when you purchase a Mac Mini. Of course, you know that the Mini comes without these extra devices. It's a perfect way to upgrade your current system at a fraction of the price. The Mini contains all of the things you most likely want to upgrade anyway and it is a smart way to improve your system. You can also set this up right next to an existing computer if upgrading isn't your plan.
Hook the Mini up to your television and you have all of the ability to use the Front Row software from the comfort of your living room. You will still need to add the keyboard and mouse to the system to work it properly.
The original advertising of the Mini declared it to be a low cost way to enter the Mac world. And that it is. If you don't have the money to spend on some of Apple's higher priced machines but still want to benefit from their outstanding technology this is the way to go. It has been stated that the iMac is another low cost alternative and might prove to be the better value, but for many Mini users this system is the better way to go. It allows you to conserve in the areas that you choose to conserve, monitor, peripherals can all be adjusted according to your needs and desires.
Of course, you will still be getting Apple quality for your money and comes in a super high performing Mini core solo 1.5 GHz or the Mini core duo 1.66 GHz. Both of these models perform exceptionally well in tests and will give the user a great deal of versatility.
For those who are looking for a high quality Apple product, but don't want to spend the typical high cost, this is a high performance option.
