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.
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 advanced 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, the world's most advanced operating system.
