Macworld Reviews Update Mac Minis

by Juan on September 24th, 2006

Jason Snell of Macworld puts the recently updated Mac Minis through it’s paces. His recommendation? Mac Minis are a good value if you’re looking to use it as a supplementary computer, web/file server or as a set-top box for home entertaiment.

Priced at $599 for the 1.6 Ghz Core Duo and $799 for the 1.83 Ghz Core Duo, the Mac Mini makes a compelling argument for the above mentioned uses. Sure you can get faster Windows based systems but you have to take into account what the other things the Mac Mini can offer. Such as a small footprint, a rock solid OS and the versatility of being able to run both Mac OS X and Windows. How’s that for value.

I myself am thinking about eventually getting a Mac Mini to handle my home server needs. I want to be able to use it to serve video files, iTunes Music library as well as act as a media center for watching videos, photos, etc.. That’s what I see the Mac Mini’s use for. Sure the iTV will be coming out next year but we’ll see how that is. Right now the advantage of the Mac Mini is that it’s also a full featured computer. In the event that my main computer goes kaput, I have a back-up one I can use. I just can’t imagine my life without a computer…
