Apple Mac mini MA206B/A
Advantages: Very small, designed for prior PC users, Fast, Powerful, Capable
Disadvantages: Doesn't come with mouse or keyboard
The Apple Mac Mini is a remarkable machine, which is ideal for PC users wishing to purchase a Mac. The Mac Mini I own is the 1.83GHz version, but you can also buy a 2GHz version. It has an intel core 2 duo processor, 1GB of RAM, an 80GB hard drive and 64MB video card. When you buy the Mac Min it comes in a small box with the instructions, start up discs and cables. The Mac Mini also comes with a small controller for the dashboard.
You simply hook it up to a monitor, keyboard and mouse before booting it up to get on the way with your new computer. The dimensions of this gadget are amazing. It is 16.5 cm x 16.5 cm x 5.1 cm and weighs just over 1.3kg. It has a disc drive too and is absolutely silent when running. It even has a built in speaker, which isn't very powerful, but it is a benefit to have. There are 4 USB slots at the back where you can plug in your keyboard, mouse, printer and scanner or any other devices.
This Mac comes with the version 10.5 Leopard operating system. This is currently the latest version and features a variety of options. It comes with several applications such as Safari (internet browser), iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, iCal, Address Book, iChat and more. The Dashboard features a few things to make your life easier including weather, calculator, calendar, flight information and more things you can add to it. With the Apple Mighty Mouse (recommended), you can access the dashboard at a click of the scroll button. It is very useful and easy to use.
The computer is lightening quick and runs smoothly. You can open several applications at once and the Mac Mini will handle this well and rarely crashes. The Mac Mini is extremely secure against viruses and spyware. It has built in security, which can be updated using the Software Update program. There are many options in the System Preferences to change everything from your display, desktop picture, screensaver to settings, security, parental controls and many more.
You can buy the 1.83GHz version for £399.99 and the 2GHz version for £499.99 at any Apple store or online. They are very powerful computers and are ideal for making music, editing photos and composing high quality movies. The Mac Mini is very easy to use and takes little time to get used to. I would recommend the Wired Mighty Mouse and new Apple keyboard to suit your Mac Mini. They all work well together to give you an excellent computer.
Thanks for reading
