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. Unless you need the very best performance, this $599 model is a better value than the more expensive mini.
Mac mini has a sleek, anodized aluminum case and clean, white surface. It?s small, elegant, and unassuming. In fact, it looks so simple it's hard to believe it?s a computer at all. Mac mini was engineered to fit a lot of computer into a little space. It?s powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, with NVIDIA graphics and fast DDR3 memory. There?s plenty of storage space for just about anything. And it comes with Mac OS X Snow Leopard.
