    Apple Mac mini reviews

    Mac mini 2.6 GHz Desktop Computer (Late 2014) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Customer Really like the late 2014 Mac Mini. Upgrading from a late 2006 iMac so a nice step up in functionality and overall speed. Got the Fusion drive so apps open quickly but media files take a bit longer as they are stored on the spinning drive. I also got the higher speed processor as the base model I think would be kinda underpowered. I'm very happy so far, but I don't use the computer for heavy duty computing--surfing web, some word processing, presentations, some very basic photo arrangement/editing. Some people might complain that there is no monitor/keyboard/mouse with this unit but I knew that going in and it's the cheapest way to get an Apple computer. Knowing this was my family computer and wouldn't be for really intensive tasks, it wasn't a big deal. Plus I found a very solid HD monitor for a good price so I'm happy all around. Finally, I want to put in a good word for B&H. I have ordered audio and camera equipment and now a computer from this company and have always had SUPERB service. Not only do they typically have some of the best prices, they provide great service. Have never had a problem. Kudos B&H!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I just needed at home PC for casual internet browsing, photo storage, media player, etc. A friend of mine who's head over heels about Apple recommended this and told me to pay a little extra for the Fusion Drive. It definitely pays off,everything functions so quickly and has a snappy feel to it. Extremely easy to use, very aesthetically beautiful, the power of a huge desktop PC in a machine about the size of a small hardcover book, I love everything about this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mini meets and exceeds my requirements. This is just the latest of many Apple computers I have owned over the years from G5s, G4s and iMacs and the mini continues the line of great Apple products. The mini runs two monitors for me and easily runs the applications I use from Photoshop to Lightroom, Nik Software and all the Apple software. I do wish it still had firewire ports, but I also bought a Thunderbolt to Firewire Adapter to connect all my legacy portable drives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Punch from a little thing I'm a photographer, I mainly use lightroom, and I run a bunch of other stuff when I'm working. (iTunes, safari, spotify,and other apps when needed) and they all work perfectly fine! I rarely see the beach ball ever. I moved from a PC to a Mac and don't regret it. And fusion drive is such a huge, huge advantage! Exporting and importing my photos is a breeze! ONLY wish you could change out RAM, but oh well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Little Computer! Mainly as a photographer importing and exporting photos is always something that was a drag with a HDD. But with Fusion drive it's a lot more quicker to export, import and boot up! I love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fusion Drive is where it's at The fusion drive is truly fast and huge; best of both worlds. The computer is great for photo editing, web surfing, word processing, or just looking good on your desk.
