    Apple made little noise about this update to its Mac mini line, which is highlighted by the addition of Intel Core 2 Duo chips to replace the older Core Duo processors. The minis also now ship with 1GB of RAM, up from 512MB, and more hard-drive capacity. However, the minis continue to use an integraged Intel graphics processor that shares memory with the system RAM, hampering performance in graphic-intensive applications.

    Pros

    • Faster than ever before
    • Small size
    • Least expensive Mac available

    Cons

    • Hard drive and graphics performance underwhelming
    • Slower, shorter-ranged 802.11g wireless networking
