Help, Guides, and News on making the Switch To Apple Macintosh Computers
Mac mini Topic
The Mac mini has been MIA from the Refurbished Mac section of the Online Apple Store the past few weeks. As I've been looking to get one for development work, I noticed today that Apple has a 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server available for $849. A 3-5 business day shipping time frame is listed.
Apple's MacBook portables have taken three top spots in the June 2009 issue of Consumer Reports. Apple Macintosh laptops ranked highest across the 13-inch, 14-to 16-inch and 17- to 18-inch categories as Apple readily beat out PC vendors who sell Windows based systems. Interestingly the systems that Microsoft has featured in their recent television ads came nowhere close to Apple systems in the ratings.
Apple today announced updates to its iMac and Mac mini desktop lines, including a 24-inch iMac that is priced more affordably than ever before and a Mac mini with powerful new integrated graphics. For the same $1,499 price as the previous generation 20-inch iMac, the new 24-inch iMac delivers a 30 percent larger display, twice the memory and twice the storage. Delivering up to five times better graphics performance, the updated Mac mini now features the same groundbreaking NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics introduced with the aluminum unibody MacBook family. The Mac mini is the world's most energy efficient desktop, drawing less than 13 watts of power when idle. All iMac and Mac mini systems come with Mac OS X Leopard, the world's most advanced operating system, and iLife '09, Apple's unparalleled suite of consumer applications for managing and organizing photos, making movies and creating and learning to play music.
