Detailed review
Apple products were not necessarily known for their speed or features, but then again those were not their selling points either. Taking away the optical drive was a bit too much soon, as situations did arise at a later time, which an external DVD writer was needed.

It was much more capable machine and upgrade-able than the previous generation. The flexible platform somewhat overcome the lack of speed and features.

I was looking for a machine to surf the web, stream media, and perform some light-weight photo editing and management, Apple Mini delivered with the style that only Apple could provide.
