Great product

nice machine

It's a nice machine. I hadn't used a Mac in many years and I got this model to have a bit of fun for a secondary computer and to do some programming. It's computational power is much lower than a pc for the price, but (again), the model i got was okay for my budget and my ambitions. It hooked up nicely with 2 monitors, keyboard, mouse, and speakers/webcam. The operation is extremely quiet (virtually silent) which is really nice for me. If your goals match what this product can deliver, it's a good fit. I'm enjoying it. I've had it a little over a month and look forward to many more months/years of enjoyment.

MacMini replaces old iMac

Bought this to replace an iMac whose screen had begun to die. Unwilling to pay for a new one, tried the Mac Mini. Reused they keyboard and mouse from the iMac. Transfered all the data and apps in less than an hour, and it has been working flawlessly. Everything I expected, and more - fewer problems moving from IOS 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) to I.O.S. 10.11 (El Capitan) than expected. Reused printer and external hard drive, saving there as well.

Apple Perfection!!!

What a small piece of magic. This little computer is plenty powerful for everyday use and comes in an elegant package that only Apple knows how to do. I highly recommend spending the extra money to get the 8GB of ram as it really helps things fly. I went all out and bought the 27" 5K iMac that blew my mind at first. I reluctantly returned it because you can get a very similar experience with OS X at a fraction of the cost from this Mac mini. I highly recommend it.

Apple bug makes this painful to use

Text looks absolutely horrible on anything larger than a 13" monitor. Look online for "blurry text"; its a major problem on any non-retina systems. If you have a 4k monitor, its not a problem, but buying a mini and a 4k monitor doesn't make sense due to the cost. Applecare was not able to solve the problem with mine, so I returned it after 3 days. I have a non-retina MBP and it looks great, but its only a 13" screen. I plugged my MBP into a 26 inch monitor and it was just as bad as the mini. Its a shame that Apple is not addressing this issue. The Mini would be a 5 star if it was not for this issue. I love Apple, but this is a dark stain.

The best bang for your bucks!

This is my second Mac mini and I love it! I have installed two screens via the two Thunderbolt ports and the resolution is amazing! This is a very fast and efficient machine you won't regret it!

New to Mac

As a newbee to Mac this little machine has mad it easy for me to make the switch. This step up model has much more power than the base model and well worth the extra money as I found when I upgraded. Picked up the wired keyboard and the trackpad to round it out. Very happy!

It reeks of perfection!

Love, love, love my new Mac mini! It's so fast, compact, and user friendly. Definitely all 5stars above but couldn't get them to yellow up.
