Macworld posted a review of the new 2012 Mac minis on their website today. Overall, they seem to be impressed with the new machines. Calling the additions of USB 3.0 and more quad-core processors to the line significant. They also posted up some benchmark scores that show impressive gains over the 2010 and 2011 Mac minis.
The new Mac mini continues to build on the solid foundation set by the 2011 model. If you prefer a Mac desktop computer to a laptop, and/or you don't want to be confined to the glossy 21.5- or 27-inch displays that come with the iMac, the Mac mini is a capable system for most tasks.
The quad-core Core i7 processor and the larger storage capacity make the $799 Mac mini more attractive-plus you can configure this system with Apple's new Fusion Drive for an additional $250. The least expensive Mac available today, the $599 Mac mini, has made its own performance strides and continues to be an affordable option for anyone wanting the Mac experience without paying a high premium.
The new 2012 Mac minis earned a score of 4 out of 5 mice.
