One caller the other night had some questions about whether or not he should purchase a Mac Mini. He wondered if it’s comparable to a Windows PC running a quad-core system. The answer to that is… uh… NO! You can’t even begin to compare those two systems. The Mac Mini would be more like a Windows machine with a Core 2 Duo.
If space is an issue and you don’t need a powerful machine, then a Mac Mini will work well. It runs nicely when not trying to do too much at once. I use one of them to run my live stream, and it handles those tasks beautifully most of the time. However, if you have to do a lot of system-intensive things, then I can pretty much guarantee you won’t be happy with the Mac Mini.
The caller watches videos and surfs the web. He also does a lot of selling on eBay, so he prints shipping labels quite often. In that case, the Mac Mini may be perfect for him.
