With third-generation Intel Core processors, Mac mini keeps up with computers twice its size. When you're using processor-intensive applications, Turbo Boost 2.0 increases the clock speed up to 3.6GHz. Hyper-Threading lets each core run two threads, so OS X multitasks even more efficiently. And an integrated memory controller connects fast 1600MHz memory directly to the processor, so it gets right to work on your data. In short, Mac mini is a little box of vroom.

Intel HD Graphics 4000 delivers up to 65 percent more pixel-pushing performance than the previous generation of integrated graphics. So the video you watch and the games you play are smoother and more responsive. Flipping through photo albums is a breeze. And you've got all the power you need to edit your HD video into a film worthy of a red carpet premiere.

Mac mini comes standard with either a 500GB or 1TB 5400-rpm hard drive. So you can pack in your photo libraries, movies, music, files, and more, more, more.

Apple Mac mini - Core i5 2.5 GHz - 4 GB - 500 GB 4.4 5 11 11
Our first mac Apple made set up and use of the mac mini fairly simple. We had not used a mac before buying this one. We are using this for our MDM solution, and so far it is working great. October 25, 2014
Great Mac to start with I used Macs in college, but live and work in a Windows world, and I play in a Linux world.This machine is the best option for someone interested in trying out a Mac without investing a sizable amount of money.I'm using a standard mouse and ViewSonic display, that I already had, but I did buy a standard Mac USB keyboard for it. I definitely would recommend getting the keyboard, partly for the slight difference with the option and command keys, and partly for the comfort it provides - in my opinion. October 2, 2014
Excellent performance in a small package This is the best Mac Mini so far. It's a tiny bit larger than the older ones, but also a bit thinner. It looks great too. Performance is excellent, however remember that one big bottleneck is the hard drive speed. The standard hard drive that's included will work fine for normal use - internet, music, general things a home user would like. However, performance can be dramatically improved with the addition of a good SSD. We've set them up this way for use with graphic design, and they work great.They are extremely quiet, super easy to set up. Has HDMI, USB 3, and Thunderbolt. They actually support two internal hard drives, although you'll need an additional inexpensive part to use both. Disassembly is much easier than previous MacMinis, if you ever need to service it.

Small form factor, great way to enter Apple space or have as a utility computer We are a Windows shop but expanding into the iOS mobile space. Several functions are available only from Apple computers and the MacMini is a great buy for the money to use as a utility computer for Apple Configurator, advanced iOS troubleshooting and testing and other entry level apple functions when not a primary computer. February 13, 2014
Great product We have been using MAC Mini's since they came out. The new unit is great. Apple support was excellent on some transfer problems. The only negative is the missing superdrive. January 31, 2014
Imaging Server Good product to use for imaging both Mac and PC equipment.Easily setup hardware and load imaging software. December 11, 2013
A decent device, gives you all of the functionality of a Mac in a tiny box. They can be a bit slow because of the compact parts they use though, but the price makes up for that. August 13, 2012
Good device for some uses. I had one set up for a single use as a data replication server for the 30+ Mac's in our office. I've since moved to a full blown iMac with Lion. I've also heard the newer version won't have an optical drive which is very sad indeed. June 20, 2012
