Hatsubai's review"Small package but big performance"

Apple Mac Mini
The Mac mini is the most affordable Mac that Apple has in their lineup. It’s meant for people who don’t need the power of the Mac Pro and don’t need the accessories the iMac comes with. The current iMac has a 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor standard, and that’ll be the one I’ll be reviewing. Keep in mind that there are various upgrades that Apple offers for these, and the review may be different depending on specs.

Without getting too heavy into the specs, the Mac mini comes with a 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 2 GB of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 320M with 256 MB of RAM, 320 GB hard drive, 8x DVD burner and more. For being such a little device, the thing is packed with technology. In fact, that’s its main appeal. The Mac mini is ideal for those who are in need of a computer that can fit in a tight spot. Most people use these as mini NAS servers, but it can actually mount nicely inside a rack for musicians like us. It’s because of this, as well as the small price point, that I recommend these to most people who are in need of Apple’s reliability without the price and hassle of having to build a Hackintosh.

This model has some nice features such as HDMI, Mini DisplayPort, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and more. These allow you to be able to run less wires than most standard desktops, and the display port options give you the ability to plug into most anything out there regardless as to what connector is has. The one downside is that you will need to buy adapters if you want to use a DVI or VGA monitor. Overall, if you’re looking for a good Apple computer without the huge price, this is definitely worth checking out.

Apple Mac Mini
Resalut ....( to all and all)

At the request of some people, I pushed further testing of the Mac mini for audio ...
As I said in my review last month (for those who did not read ...)
I have a MacMini for 2 months and I am very happy ....( after 10 years of computer music PC, Sonar, creamware ..)
I have the 1.42 model ghz/1024 DDR / dd 80go/DVD (reader) CDRW .....( 800 euros)
Logic Pro 7 + RME Fireface 800 + firewire 120GB EXT HDD ....
AND it's ball ...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No, it's true, I am very very happy ......
Well, obviously, it remains a G4 and it has its limits in terms of processing time rel (especially with some pro Logic virtual instruments and EFX are very CPU intensive ...) Do not count to 4 Reverbs Space designer in a project (1 or 2 max and more ..) Forget also the Sculpture synth (well when I say forget it mean that wholesale Space Design and Sculpture take about 50 to 80% of CPU resources according to ....) usable presets, but you soon realize why Logic is recommended for bi-pro G5 and a max of RAM ..... If not for the rest, even when it's going .... in Perfs
I did some tests here are the rsultats ..
All in 24bit / 48000khz .. I still had to configure Logic Audio rglages in the window (buffer Large disk, latency is 1024 etc ...)
28 tracks recording, I have not put more on but I can save 40 or 50 tracks in order to gauge perf CPU and Disk Logic had been stated for the record ...
Read after I opened 5 TO, 1 space designer, two delays platiniumVerb 2 ... 80 to 90% CPU ...
Then I Space virtual designer (but I left the other 4 TO ...) and I did play The Ultrabeat (synthe battery of hell in passing but also very greedy ...)+ 1 88 TEU (virtual Rhodes ..) a V-station (novation..) +7 samplers EXS24 ....... 80 to 90% CPU ... but it turns nickel ...
So much for my little exprience .... And I say ... A HIGHLY PORTABLE G5 ............... Good music all and all ...... ALFRED ... (www.rastacademy.com)

Apple Mac Mini
I use it for 2 months with CUBASE SL 3, M-AUDIO FIREWIRE SOLO, a MOTU FASTLANE USB Midi interface, an MC-909 and AC do serious.
Mac Mini 1.25 GHz, 256MB to 1GB booster.
-What I like is the price, less than a G4 500 euro is the perfect compromise to more expensive models ...
-ATTENTION ... Buy also the Mac keyboard. Because it has two USB ports and frees the AC port of the mini (it does only 2 ...)
-If it again, I would buy. I know it's the gueugueure between the users PC and Mac users with the experience but I think it is more stable than mac pc ...
Purchased-closed eyes, it's a great value ...

Apple Mac Mini
4 months that I use the beast, 4 months of happiness ...
This is the MODEL G4 1.42ghz (not Intel) with 512 DDR / dd 80go/DVD (reader) CDRW
A bit lightweight in RAM for Mao, I intend to boost the 1GB (only small black dot: boostage max RAM = 1GB, smaller forces)
But aside from that is a pure bomb, and that's the mac!
So we spent the usual superlatives (yes we know that protools mac ca not crash, it is more stable than PC ect ...), but no one will forget Congratulations Apple for making available all this little device enabling the personal mobility jprfre move a mac mini plutt a tower PC ...)

Accessory: Hub Belkin Firewire / USB
Little room = Few USB ports ... (Only 2)

Honntement to dial is a real hit, especially since it's more affordable than a G5 dual proc ...
I personally toured with Protools M-powered Reason 7.1 + 3 + 5 + Live Absynth 3 is the orgy ... Obviously good Absynth and Live are RAM-hungry but good should be raliste, are serious enough to make ...

In conclusion it is when even the perfect tool for computer music in this price range (800). To buy the closed eyes ...
