    Apple Mac mini reviews

    Mac mini 2.8 GHz Desktop Computer (Late 2014) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decided to stop waiting for the new Mac mini to come out For a while we were considering of buying a new Mac mini for our studio. But since the latest product line is of Late 2014, we were a little bit skeptical about the longevity of the Mac mini as we do have already the same minis in our studio, and there are many rumors that the new one has to come out soon (for over a year now). Usually our process of buying Mac minis is: Buy a good mac mini, replace the HDD and boost the RAM. So this was our first experience with out of the box ready Mac Mini with a Fusion drive which we never tried before - this thing is FANTASTIC! You get the speed and performance of SSD where you need it, and still you have a plenty of storage. LOVE IT!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for me! I had purchased a 13 Retina MBP and Thunderbolt display to replace my aging 24 iMac. My plan was to purchase an updated Mac Mini after the Broadwell chips came out to eventually use in place of my 13 MBP but that didn't happen with this most recent refresh. Nevertheless I chose to move forward with the Mac Mini purchase and I'm glad I did. This Mini has plenty of power to perform all my business tasks--Acrobat Pro, Quickbooks Pro, occasionally Photoshop, email, estimating, and web browsing. It frees up my 13 MBP that I also use for personal and business and airdrop makes it simple to exchanges files as needed.As noted by others, a drawback is it's un-user friendly upgrade capability but even that does affect me. This machine has more than enough power for my needs. Thunderbolt cables made transfer of info from MBP to Mac Mini quick and easy. Once all info was transferred and machine was in place, plugged in and turned on (all totaled about an 1-1.5 hrs to make the switch), I was instantly able to continue seamlessly with work as usual.Later if I choose to purchase a Broadwell chip Mini I can still use this one as a media center device for movies and music so the longevity of this little machine should make the purchase useful for many years to come.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mac mini 2.8 GHz Works great with my late 2009 27 Mac Desktop computer which I now use as a monitor. In addition to the advantages of super-fast 2.8 GHz Mac mini, I now have a second Mac computer as backup. The B&H sales rep was terrific and made sure I purchased a needed Thunderbolt cable not included with the Mac mini.
