Macs are often characterized as a computer that most people want but are put off by its cost. Consumers usually make the mistake of comparing a Mac with a generic PC which of course is cheaper even by PC standards, even worse they usually compare a low or mid range desktop or laptop with a high end Mac such as the Power Mac (desktop) or Macbook Pro (laptop).

Back to Mac Mini, it is the cheapest Mac and is often overlooked by the consumer. The cheapest model costs KWN 950,000 (USD 615) and sports a 2Ghz Intel Dual Core, 1 GB DDR RAM, 120GB HD, and a DVD drive. The Mac mini does not include a keyboard, mouse or display since its target market are PC users who are assumed to have those devices already.

Also the Mac Mini is capable of running Windows XP or Vista via Bootcamp or Parallels which basically gives you two computers for the price of one. If you’re not a power user and mainly need a computer for everyday surfing, watching videos and daily computing, I would put my money on it.

** Also updated were the iMac and Power Mac models.
