Apple Mac Mini 2010 review


The first major redesign for the Mac mini is smaller but more powerful than ever before. Is the extra cost worth it?

The mini's makeover has been a long time coming, but it was worth the wait

Apple Mac mini 2.4GHz review


Apple has refreshed its Mac mini and made more substantial changes than we saw at the last evolution of this tiny desktop computer. But does the Mac mini deliver, or is the new asking price of £649 just too much to bear? Overall the Mac mini wins a lot...

Design, small footprint, HDMI, removable bottom

Price, SD card slot on the back

Overall the Mac mini wins a lot of points for the design. You'd be hard pressed to find any desktop computer that looks as elegant as this. But at the same time you are paying for that design statement. You can get a more powerful Windows PC unit for a...

Apple Mac Mini (Mid 2010) review


Since it was first introduced in 2005, the compact Mac Mini has been Apple's smallest and cheapest desktop computer. However, while the previous Mini was available for £500, the new model costs almost £150 more; thankfully though, it has been...

Apple Mac mini (Mid 2010) review


We always thought the original Mac mini design was an understated marvel. Just two-inches high and seven-inches square, it offered so much more than the new wave of under-aspirated nettop PCs. With its aluminium sides wrapping around a plastic top, it...

Only the price stands in the way of making this a no-brain recommendation for purchase. At £649, Apple has raised the budget Mac mini to a level where more justification is required for the expense. It doesn’t help that we’re being asked to pay...

Apple Mac mini (2012) review


The Mac mini retains the same design, but Apple has included the Fusion Drive technology and beefed up the processors. Do these upgrades justify the £799 pricing?

Mac Mini


The Mac Mini is billed as Apple's entry-level machine, a way to experience the world of OS X without having to remortgage your flat. The current model is loaded up to the hilt, including the aforementioned Apple operating system, NVIDIA 320M graphics,...

Apple Mac Mini PC 2010 Review


For a long time now, Apple's Mac Mini has been the manufacturer's odd child, as it has been the only mass range desktop machine from the brand that does not have a complete in-built experience. However, people had fallen in real love with this weird...
