Don't waste money on this useless thing.

I have bought four MacBooks in the past and this time I wanted to try the Mac Mini. Because I love Apple products and really trust Mac products, I never thought about problems occurring on the Mac mini. Apple products have the best performance in the world, even if it is much more expensive than other brands. I bought this Mac mini and start using it. It just felt too slow, then I went to the genesis bar, to try to get help. Finally they down graded the operating system and ask me to try for around one month, I tried it. It’s still too slow. I hate to use it now. Can I return it? I was really disappointed this time, I can’t even upgrade it.

This paragraph should be updated

This paragraph should be updated "Preloaded with OS X Yosemite operating system in English and French, offering an easy-to-use interface and a collection of useful apps, while allowing your Mac and iOS devices to work together seamlessly" We are now running MacOS Sierra and El Capitan was the OS in between OS X Yosemite and macOS Sierra 10.12.4 (16E195). I can rate it since I have never owned one, so it gets 1 Star

Underpowered for latest software updates

Bought this less than a year ago but wish I had opted for a model with more RAM as this one cannot cope with the current macOS Sierra. The memory pressure is always on amber or red, and i am only using for basic school work. The processor is perfectly adequate, and barely uses more than 10% most of the time. But the RAM is not upgradeable on these models. MacOS is still great to use, but just requires more memory than it used to.

Great Little Computer

I bought this Mac Open Box and it is great! Works fast enough for 5-6 layers on Final Cut Pro

I own iPad, iPad mini, iPhone , iPod and now Mac Mini. My impressions of the Mac Mini 2014 is WOW! If you are looking for trouble free, go with apple. I agree you pay a bit more, however the price to pay for perfection.

Mac Mini

I really enjoy my new mac mini,so easy to use.Such a relief to have a great computer. I still have a lot to learn.

Ruined a good thing

The best Mac Mini you could buy was the late 2012 models. Those had the Quad-Core CPU in them, and the memory/HDD was up-gradable in just a few minutes. The memory is now soldered to the mother board, so you are stuck with the 4GB you are given. This machine will obsolete it self within two years. If you absolutely want this, you will be better of building one from the ground up with Apple.

Best one!!

This is my second!! My old one went to geek heaven after about 6 or 7 years of use. I upgraded the Memory to 16GB (VERY EASY)!! Setup was very easy too. BUT then, I'm an OLD geek (67 years in Jan 11). I don't understand why "Steve" only gave it 4 stars?! Buy it, you never regret it!! Buy the biggest screen you can afford, a plug in keyboard with the option to plug in a mouse too (in the keyboard). YOU WILL LOVE IT.

get what you pay for

this tiny little computer i'm sure is overlooked by many,but sure does deliver on many levels!i made the switch from PC(windows)to this little gem around 2 years ago,and just can't fault don't have to worry about paying for virus programs,and all the software updates are free as well.not to mention,u don't get all those annoying windows asking if ure sure u want to do this or that.solid constuction,and very easy to upgrade the ram(i upgraded to 16gb and it took about 10 minutes).the base model hard drive is 500gb,but i added an external 1 tb short,i can't say enough good about this little gem!LOVE IT!!!!!!
