Mac mini (Late 2009)

At a Glance

The Mac mini continues to be a great option for those new to the Mac who already have a display, keyboard, and mouse. However, the performance of this model is only slightly better than the less expensive Mac mini, making that $599 configuration a better value.

Price when rated: $799

Pros

  • Impressive set of features
  • No longer a very poor value compared to the $599 model
  • Tiny size
  • All the dramatic improvements of the Early 2009 model plus better performance

Cons

  • Performance increase over $599 model still not dramatic
  • Difficult to upgrade
  • Slow hard drive
