Hardware.Info
28 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Even when you look really close, the new Mac mini looks like a clone of the previous version. It's also more of an update than a complete overhaul, and that means it's still a very nice mini PC.

  • Conclusion: At $1,049, however, it's hard to argue that our review configuration packs the same value proposition, especially if you're going to be upgrading your peripherals or monitor at the same time.
  • Pros: Strong productivity and media performance, Quiet operation, Compact size, Fast drive performance with Fusion Drive option, USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt ports
  • Cons: Expensive considering lack of peripherals, $250 price for Fusion Drive option seems high, No dedicated-graphics option
