Apple Cook's half-baked defense of the Mac Mini: This kit ain't a leftover

Answering a loyalist's email, the supply-chain-man-turned-Steve-Jobs-corporate-heir said the iPhone giant still has plans to remake the Mac Mini, just don't expected to …

The new Mac mini eviscerated with ease

Teardown Apple's new Mac mini has been torn apart by the parts 'n' tools 'n' repair-advice folks at iFixit, who pronounce it highly repairable – a rare reversal of Apple's increasing tendency to create kit that's locked down tighter than Mitt Romney's tax records. The new mini scored an impressive eight on iFixit's one-to-10 …

Apple Mac OS X Server for Mountain Lion review

The cost of Mountain Lion Server is a fraction of what Apple charged for its server software just a few years ago, especially if you look at the old 'unlimited client' editions of Mac OS X Server.

Apple Mac Mini 2011

Review Last year’s Mac Mini was a bit of a let-down. Sure, it got a nice redesign, with a gleaming metallic, low-profile chassis and a new HDMI port that seemed like a belated attempt to try and repurpose the Mini as a media centre system.

Next 15in, 17in MacBook Pros to be MacBook Air skinny

Apple has completed development work in a 15in MacBook Air-skinny notebook, it has been claimed. Little is known about the laptop's specification, reports MacRumours, which was first out with the news. But given its slimline design and Apple's current strategy, it's safe to say the thing won't sport an optical drive, absent …

Apple shrinks Mac Mini price

Apple has knocked 50 quid off the price of the Mac Mini. The diminutive desktop Mac - it's just 197 x 197 x 36mm - was, at launch, priced at £649.

Apple Store shut to add updated desktops

The Apple Store is offline ahead of - it now seems reasonable to assume - new desktop Macs. Recent rumours have implied that Apple's iMac and Mac Pro lines will be refreshed in the near future. What with the Apple Store website currently presenting nothing but a "We'll be back soon" notice, and the fact that Apple UK is …

Dell Inspiron Zino HD

Review On the face of it, Apple’s Mac Mini makes most 'small form-factor’ PCs look like a pile of junk. The Mini’s ultra-compact design also makes it ideal for use in an office or as a stylish little media centre in the living room.
