Apple Mac mini (Late 2009)

 

Apple gives its smallest Mac yet another update.

It's a safe move for Apple, too. No business that was seriously considering a Mac Pro is going to look at the Mac mini server and think: "yep, that will do the job instead." The cost of offering a slightly different version of the mini chassis is...

Apple Mac Mini review - desktop computer reviews and video

 

The new Mac Mini has a familiar face but upgraded innards. But is it better value for money than its pricey predecessors?

Cheapest way to own a Mac. Desktop power

Small hard drive. Can't upgrade. Pricey

Apple Mac mini 2.53GHz review

 

When Apple update a product, it generally keeps the name that it had before. We saw quick hop with the reshuffle of the MacBook line-up to give space to the new entry-level 13-inch white model , but the last Mac mini update we saw was in March of this...

Compact design, near silent operation, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and plenty of power

No SD card slot, USB slots close

The Mac mini is a fantastic entry point into the world of the Apple Mac for those switching over from a PC - with existing peripherals - or for someone looking for a compact but powerful desktop computer. Given the growth of digital content and the...

Apple Mac Mini 2.26GHz review

 

Apple's Mac Mini is different from all the other PCs here.

Apple's Mac Mini is small, quiet and power-efficient, but it's expensive and you have to sacrifice performance and expandability for its compactness.

Apple Mac mini (Late 2009) review

 

Apple's entry-level Mac was in the doldrums for almost two years... and now sees two updates just six months apart.

The Apple Mac mini (Late 2009) is now more compelling than ever as a compact computer – one that's built to very high standards, and includes a feature set unmatched by any other PC on any platform. Whether used as a space-saving desktop PC for the...

Last week I bought myself an Apple Mac Mini and after a few mishaps regarding video adapters, I finally got it up and running towards the end of the week. Needless to say I was growing ever more impatient as it was sat on my desk doing little more than...

Mac mini review (Late 2009)

 

According to Apple, the mini line was designed to be the most affordable way to get a computer with Mac OS X and iLife. The latest models improve modestly on their predecessors with faster processors, more RAM, and - on the lower-end model - more...

Back in March we reviewed the previous Mac mini models. Apple’s smallest desktop computer had just received a long-overdue refresh: it had been 19 months since the company had touched the Mac mini line. But that update was the most significant in the...

Apple Mac Mini (2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo review: Apple Mac Mini (2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

 

Apple Mac Mini (2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Best design among budget desktops; decent performance for its price; best performance-per-watt on the market.

160GB hard drive too small at this price; no HDMI port.

The lower-cost Mac Mini offers respectable budget performance and Apple's usual compelling design, but a puny hard drive and a lack of HDMI hurt this system's value and overall potential. It's actually more versatile next to its budget-priced Windows...

Apple Mac Mini 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 160GB, Fall 2009

 

Apple has stuck with the same exterior design for the Mac Mini since the system first debuted in 2005. We have no qualms with Apple retaining a design that works, but we continue to find it surprising that in the ensuing five years, no Windows PC...
