The Mac mini was engineered to fit a lot of computer into a little space. It's powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with advanced NVIDIA graphics and fast DDR3 memory. There's 160GB of storage space for just about anything and it comes with Mac OS X Snow Leopard. At just 6.5 inches square and 2 inches tall it's designed to take up far less room and use far less energy than any other desktop computer. Mac mini includes five USB 2.0 ports and one FireWire 800 port and lets you connect up to two displays (including your TV) with the mini-DVI port and Mini DisplayPort. On the front of Mac mini is the ultrafast slot-loading SuperDrive for playing DVDs and CDs or burning your own. Because Mac mini is so small, it can be just about anything you want it to be. Officially, Mac mini is a desktop computer, but it's been used everywhere from boats to server rooms, as the heart of an entertainment centre and even to power robots! But whatever you choose to do with your Mac mini you can be sure it will do it amazingly.
