Summary: This little machine can be upgraded to hang with today's computing needs with just a little TLC. If you are an average computer user and you need something to watch videos, email, and surf with, with maybe some light gaming you would be happy with this little guy. I have a big computer for the heavy stuff but this guy is great for little day to day task!
Great little machine, but don't expect the latest Apple software

Summary: For some reason Macs hold their value much longer than PCs. They are well build machines, but looking behind he scenes, Apple's policies are created to keep you spending money on their newer hardware. I am not a fan of this. I purchased this unit with the ambition of having a second Mac that I can remote into for my development purposes. Lo and behold I can not install X-Code 5 and above on this. In fact OS X Lion is the highest OS that can be installed on this machine.
Summary: We were unfamiliar with the Lion osx so some instruction would have been nice (perhaps a web address ) We had to wait for a converter to use our vga monitor so we used the HDMI cable that came with the Mac Mini and our TV. The wireless keyboard did not work.We borrowed a mac usb keyboard from my daughter . The startup and browsing was much faster than our old PC. We used a flash drive to transfer files.
Summary: I bought it as a mini tv box its not fast but it one of the only macs that can take major upgrades to make it as good as new Ive changed the ram hard rive and CPU and it has turned into a true performer for under $200 bucks.
