Summary: I've been a windows user my entire life, but after Windows 8 release that had to change. I reviewed and check reviews on Mac Os and finally made the jump ( since windows 8 seem to just fall apart). I am happy with my decision. The Mac Mini was delivered on time and was easy to set-up. The OS is great and easy to learn and as an extra i was able to load windows 7 using BootCamp. So now i don't have to give up the few apps that are not on mac OS.
Summary: This is an amazing product. My only complaint, if any, is that the stock RAM isn't really enough to properly run the computer. It was a bit sluggish. I expected this, and after upgrading it to 16GB of RAM it runs with no issues. I love this computer and have no complaints.
Summary: It is hard to see as I only have 1 eye. I would like to find out where I can get more ram, or commit some virtual memory to ram. I have an apple superdrive for it , and can not eject a 3 inch disk for a microscope and it does not read the disk. Every DVD I put in says it is not readable and when I try to open the MENU it shows a big X and says not authorized. The drive did not come with a manual so DVD's are useless.
Summary: I installed a Mac Mini and can download all my movies and play them back at excellent 1080 resolution. I also watch videos from my netflix account and use Aero to watch local TV. The quality is a bit poor, but that is a bandwidth issue with variable internet connection speeds. Since I only use it for the local news, it is good enough. So, no cable and all my TV needs are taken care of.
Summary: I was impressed with the unit and setting it up was very simple, still adopting to the Apple OS, but it's Good! Great box and small footprint to boot( no pun ) totally satisfied and may buy a newer version soon!
