The Mac mini Desktop Computer from Apple is a quiet and compact desktop computer in a sleek aluminum unibody enclosure. The system, only 7.7" square and 1.4" high, is a great option for users who would like an inexpensive, yet fully-functional, desktop Mac. The mini ships sans keyboard, mouse, and monitor, allowing you to choose the accessories that best suit your needs for use with the system.
The computer ships with Apple's popular iLife '09 software suite which includes iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie HD, iDVD, iWeb, and GarageBand. Also included is Apple's innovative Front Row application, which gives you access to all of your media via an intuitive full-screen interface. The system features an HDMI output port, making it a great option for users who would like a home theater computer for Internet video streaming and big-screen computer gaming. An optional remote control is available separately for purchase.
The system is powered by 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU and includes 2GB of RAM, a 320GB 5400rpm hard drive, a slot-loading SuperDrive, Bluetooth, dual-band 802.11n AirPort Extreme Wi-Fi, an SD card reader, and integrated nVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics.
The 64-bit OS features Time Machine backup, which automatically backs up system data to an external hard drive. It also features intuitive Cover Flow navigation, the powerful Spotlight search tool, and Quick Look document preview. You'll be able to use Boot Camp to run Windows on your Mac, or Front Row to turn your Mac into an impressive media player.
