I am very happy with my new Mac Mini which I bought last week to replace an older Mac Book Pro I was using with a monitor as my desk top set up. I was pretty excited to find this option... for years I used iMacs but when they stopped offering a matt screen that was no longer an option for me. I use it mainly photo editing and a glossy screen is terrible for that. Far to contrasty to get accurate skin tones and color. So when my last one died I bought a good monitor (which Apple now no longer makes with a matt screen!) this worked fine for awhile... but for the last year I hardly used it cause the OS was so out of date.
So, when I saw this option, which is kind of like just all the mac basics in a small, cheap package. I paid with tax & about 630.00! Wow ! It is such a good deal, esp since I have all the other stuff (monitor, track pad, keyboard) I needed. I did have to buy an adapter cord (another $100) to get it to work properly with my older monitor. I just thought I'd share incase anyone else was looking for a similar option. I have more pics of my office posted on Pie today.
