A slick little budget Mac
The USA Today is and its versatility. In his latest review, Edward Baig writes "This might be dubbed a BYOS computer, as in 'bring your own stuff.' You can, as I did, use whatever equipment you've got lying around. The beauty of the Mac [mini] is that it recognized my PC peripherals, without my having to reboot or load software. In a way, buying a Mini is analogous to flying a no-frills airline that makes you pay for a sandwich. So you board the plane with your own." In his review, Baig cites only two minor complaints: a single, but unsatisfying built in speaker, and a shortage of USB ports. This thing is assuredly not a coaster. It's the slickest little budget computer I've seen."
