Apple - Pre-Owned - Mac Pro - Quad-Core Intel Xeon Processor - 12GB Memory - 256GB Flash Storage - Black
Description

The system is powered by a quad-core 3.7 GHz Intel Xeon E5 processor. The Mac Pro also has 12GB of 1866 MHz DDR3 ECC RAM and 256GB of PCIe-based flash storage. There are also dual AMD FirePro D300 graphics cards with 2GB of GDDR5 discrete VRAM each. You'll be able to connect to the Internet with fast-speed 802.11ac Wi-Fi. The Mac Pro also supports a/b/g/n Wi-Fi networks as well. The Mac Pro also features built-in Bluetooth 4.0, which allows you to connect wireless headphones, keyboard, mice and other compatible peripherals without a hassle. The Mac Pro has six Thunderbolt 2 ports and a high-speed interface that can move data at up to 20 Gb/s. That's four times the speed of the USB 3.0 standard. Speaking of USB 3.0, Apple added four USB 3.0 ports to ensure you have full native connectivity options with your USB-compatible peripherals such as external hard drives.

5 Features
  • Memory: Every component in the Mac Pro is optimized for performance. That includes a four-channel DDR3 memory controller running at 1866 MHz.
  • Design: Apple reorganized the architecture of the internal components as well as the entire enclosure of the Mac Pro.
  • Thermal Core: Rather than using multiple heat sinks and fans to cool the processor and graphics cards, Apple built everything around a single piece of extruded aluminum.
  • Expansion: Designed with built-in Thunderbolt 2, USB 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet, and HDMI 1.4 ports, the Mac Pro provides flexible, high-performance expansion.
  • Wireless: Access your network over three-stream 802.11ac Wi-Fi for high-speed wireless connectivity. For all your other wireless connections.

    Great Mac Pro

    Still works great and looks great! The design was so futuristic that in 2021 it stills looks cool and the performance is powerful!

    Best present to myself!

    Skeptical about buying this because of its price but after having it at home I wouldn’t want it any other way! Absolutely in love with how easy it is and how large the screen is. The visuals are beyond amazing to watch with this size of screen. Worth the buy! We upgraded our desk to a larger one to be able to have space for this large the screen, also worth it if you work at home or go to online school.

    5 stars

    I used to be a Windows user because of the ease of use! Decided to purchase this IMac 27” and couldn’t be happier. Quickly boots up! memory is good wish it came with 16GB of ram! I’m a music producer and need ram to run my DAW and plugins can over whelm the Pc at times but so far so good! I’m definitely pleased and understand why so many other producers choose apple products for what we do!! 5 stars!!!

    Extremely disappointed by BestBuy

    I purchased this product from Best Buy in Open Box - Excellent which is supposed to come in like-new condition. I'm writing this review on the day of receiving the product. The product arrived missing ALL of its styrofoam packaging and did not have a mouse and keyboard, meaning that the lone MONITOR spent transit jostling around the box with nothing to support it. Moreover, when I tried to turn on the device, it was slow, and turns out, there are still documents on the iMac from the LAST OWNER. I called Best Buy customer support and they were unable to do ANTHING for me but to process a small credit and refund. The refund is not even enough to purchase the Magic Mouse and KeyBoard that was SUPPOSED to come with the purchase! I am extremely upset and disappointed by Best Buy. I will be returning the product, and WILL NOT be making another purchase with BestBuy. Note before you make a purchase that if the product shows up less than satisfactory, Best Buy will just tell you "too bad!" after you spent over 2k on a device.

    Amazing

    It works amazing. I was worried about the mouse and keyboard battery life but I’ve used it at least 3 different days and I think two of those times I forgot to turn it off and it’s still running in it’s first charge.

    Great iMac for the $

    I’ve had this for a few months now and I must say I am in love!! The fact that this has a ram door makes all the difference in the world. I added so much ram for 50 bucks myself, which saved 300 bucks going through Apple. It’s fast, the screen is fantastic, and there’s no reason to own another computer for 8-10 years.

    Best Buy Minimized Apple Replacement Imac

    Having been an Apple fan for 20 years, it was an easy decision to replace my wife’s 9 year old failed 27” IMac. Got on line and within 30 minutes I found Best Buy stocking exactly what I needed. Reserved the unit online and went to the store about 19 miles from home. On arrival, the BB reps at pickup found the order, told me they found the unit on the truck being unloaded, and that they expected the unit up front in about 30 minutes. Was given updates 2 times during the wait. The box appeared and all the inventory tags were scanned and I was on my way. Best Buy listed this unit at a very good price and with my time machine backup, my wife was back using her brand new IMac within 3.5 hours of the original machine demise.

    Mac is still the best

    Updated my computer. Had the previous for over 12 years and it just wouldn't stop working. Passed it on to my grandchild I love my new computer it does so much Did not realize how much faster this one was. Thank you to the GeekSquad for transferring all my old data. The way the Mac goes, it will probably be the last one I buy.

    Thank you again to the staff at Best Buy, my purchase was made so easy.

    If you can't afford the iMac Pro...

    I have been wanting the iMac Pro but just couldn't afford it. This iMac is great. It's my first 27" screen and the 5k display is gorgeous. I'm using it for 3D modeling, Photoshop, video editing, and app development. I've been using a 2012 iMac which was extremely sluggish lately. This thing is super fast. From what I've read online, this model is the one to get if you want something comparable to the iMac Pro.

    Purchased my new iMac with confidence.

    I had a lot of questions before purchasing a new Apple iMac computer. I needed a more powerful computer for producing music and video and I didn't want to purchase the wrong system. The salesman answered all my questions and guided me to a logical, informed, and unforced decision. Delivery to my door was on time and hassle free.,

    Simply awesome

    Wasn’t sure at first but I now love this way more than Windows. Beautiful looking, simple design, high performance yet quiet as a mouse, doesn’t bombard you with constant updates every day like Windows 10 does. Takes up very little space. I don’t play games on it but it’s great for music recording and photo editing.

    My Apple

    I have a book to write and do some graphics. This the 2020 version of Apple 27” IMAC, Retina 5k display, Intel i7(3.8 GHZ Memory) - 8 GB is my first Apple Computer and what I need. I’m slowly getting oriented to it and have MS Office. I need to download couple of softwares. But overall, I’m pleased with it. I won’t know the capabilities until I utilized it with other softwares. I love the screen display and many functions.

    A truly exceptional small-business workhorse.

    I upgraded from a mid-2014 as part of a regular upgrade cycle. I run a law practice on these machines. I routinely have to run OCR and handle very large PDF files. This new machine, when installed with 72GB of RAM, is excellent.

    In addition, the improved video camera and microphone allows a much better Zoom experience for court hearings and client meetings. It was a prime factor in my upgrade decision.

    Finally, because these machines are so durable and practical, I was able to sell the 2014 iMac, which was a TOTL for its time (quad i7 and 1TB SSD) for nearly half what I paid for the 2020!

    Very happy with the new iMac!

    Acquired my top of the line new 2020 iMac a couple of weeks ago and it performs great as a new Apple product would be expected to perform. Excellent response from the 512GB SSD. Have utilized CleanMyMac to keep my storage size to a minimum. I did not get the i9. The i7 gives great response. Graphics are fast with the extra capability of this model. Added 16GB of RAM to the existing 8GB that came standard and have 24GB total RAM. Started with my first Macintosh in 1986 and have had new models every three or four years since. Got a good price for my old iMac that was a little over three years old. No waiting around for things to happen with the power of this new iMac. Love it!

    Great Product

    Awesome, I've been a Mac user for years. Love the upgrades. First thing was to upgrade the Ram. Very simple. Did it myself. Saved me a few hundred off the top. Love the bigger viewing screen. Went from a 21.5" to a 27" (WOW!) Totally love it. Don't need the Nano screen. Editing photo's. Awesome! I'm not a Pro. This is a big improvement from Apple. Download and upload speeds. What can I say. Blows my old Mac out of the water. I can run several programs all at once and still get my work done and this thing has nooooo lag! I'm not big on gaming. So if you think this is the computer for that. I don't recommend it. This is not a gaming computer. Simplicity of use is aces. Once you go Mac. You never go back! The 1080 camera is awesome for conference calls. Face time, or what ever floats your boat. Couldn't be happier. The 27" is like having a mini T.V. at your disposal. Just a lot more powerful. If your thing of upgrading. It's well worth the money. Pricy, yes! but like anything. You get what you pay for.

    Learn How Easy it is to Tell Your Story!

    This is the second IMac I purchased. I never learned to operate the first one so I gave it to my son who has 5 girls, 3 are in college so I am certain that one is used!

    I waited & waited for someone to come to my house to set it up & finally made an appointment at Apple in Tampa. The Genius truly was a genius because he asked me just what I needed, clarified what I said, went right to work explaining what he was doing, gave me time to ask more questions, showed me how easy it is to use”dictate”, and had me practice it a few times. I am having severe problems with my sight, however, with this computer I can easily tell stories (on paper) just like my 86 year old brother who only has an eighth grade education is doing!

    This was exactly what we were looking for. My wife needed a new upgrade for the office so we decided to go with an iMac since we are already apart of the Apple ecosystem. It makes all of her assignments more fluid especially with the handoff feature. We love it. Great picture and sound. They just introduced the new iMacs with the colors, but we can see a reason to upgrade this beauty!! You can’t go wrong with an IMac.

    Great Quality

    This computer is one of the best that I have owned. Apple does not disappoint with the build quality. The computer is very easy to use and it is also very fast. It is perfect for college students who use it for everyday tasks such as joining Zoom calls, writing papers, and navigating the internet. The best part of the device is the beautiful 4K resolution retina screen.

    Unsure of Geek Squads Abilities...

    To start I really like this iMac... Best Buy didn't have one in stock so they shipped it to me... After having it for about 3 weeks and getting used to the new machine, I noticed a black 'dot' or bad pixel about half an inch into the actual view area. It goes back to Best Buy tomorrow, Nov. 4 2020. I've read some not 'so good things' about Geek Squad so I'm a bit concerned about their abilities to fix this brand new iMac without prejudice.

    Baby, I'm Amazed.

    I'm an Apple loyalist. Kinda. I've always found it difficult to give up my Windows computer attachment. I grew up and I started my career as a grant writer on a Windows platform. So, it always made sense to not abandon ship for Apple, although I had done so with every other electronic device in my life.

    August 2021: It was time for a new desktop. I was feeling gutsy with a renewed sense of sprit after all that I'd been through (together with the rest of the world) and felt like I should take a leap for what I've always wanted in spite of apprehension. So, I did it! I bought my FIRST EVER Apple iMac.

    I knew from the get that I didn't want the best that Apple had to offer. Let's remember, I'd be weening from a different OS--Baby steps. I spend quite some time comparing various iMacs Best Buy had to offer. I settle on this model for several reasons: the price, the reviews, and the specs. In that order.

    There were really only two contenders that I had to choose from before having to move up to something more expensive: This model, which is a core i5 and the core i3 model. They are the same in every other respect. The price was the same, but since this is a more expensive machine, the savings was higher ($500 vs. $300), so it wasn't a hard decision to make. However, the reviewers of the core i3 were also very happy with their purchase.

    30 days later, I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I have to admit that the learning curve has been a little longer than I anticipated, but I'm actually enjoying the process of learning an operating system that I will be using forevermore.

    The way my phone, iPad, and iMac interact with each other is PHENOMENAL. What intelligent little pieces of heaven these devices are and their intuition is incredible. One of my favorite feature is the SIDECAR--being able to use my iPad as a second monitor is great. iMac come with so many little features--making it impossible to list everything.

    I hope this has helped anyone who might be apprehensive about trading in their Windows OS for an iMac. For me, it's the best decision I've made.

    Apple products are the best!

    I was one of those people who has ALWAYS owned a PC dating back to the early-1990's up until my most recent HP computer that I bought in 2017 which unfortunately just recently crashed. However, all other technology I own is Apple-related (iPhone, iPad, AirPods, Apple TV, & Apple Watch). So I took a big step by making my first Mac purchase on 4/3/2021. Since this iMac would be used primarily for web browsing, listening to music, and light office work (since I work from home a couple days a week), I didn't necessarily need a fast machine. But this computer does the job! The 4K display is amazing and easy on the eyes while apps load up very quickly. I also love how I am able to integrate my existing apps (on my iPhone) such as my messages, photos, music, & Safari data directly on the iMac. I am very happy with this purchase and hope this will give me many years of usage!

    Love this computer

    I’m so happy with my purchase! I’m learning how to use a Mac system but it’s going great! Love the huge screen because it is so much better for my eyes. I love that you don’t need a console which is amazing because everything is inside the monitor!

    Great for this first time Mac user!!

    This is my first iMac so I was a little worried about transitioning from a chromebook laptop I had been using for work for the last 2 years. I've been using it for almost 1.5 months now and I'm really happy with it; the biggest improvement has been my video-conferencing, I currently work from home and am people can FINALLY hear and see me clearly (I had constant issues with this with my laptop and figure it was due to my connection). The only drawback is that I don't particularly care for is the mouse and keyboard since they're not ergonomic (I tend get pressure in my wrists) but that's just my preference. Highly recommend overall though :)

    Looking to purchase a second one.

    Honestly, I am very pleased with this version. The only downside is the size of the keyboard. If you have large hands, you will definitely find some difficultly typing comfortably. The accessibility features also makes it easier for my older parents to use. Thinking of purchasing a second one.

    Best Buy is misleading its customers!

    Best Buy says this is a 2020 model, but the computer says 2017. I called apple and they agreed we were given bad info from the Best Buy site and we have 2 2017 models. I called customer service and was told my complaint was not worthy enough to speak to management. My request for a manager “was not approved”. I’ll be returning these and contacting the BBB.

    Love it

    This is my first home computer. I work at a law firm so I didn't want to compute at home. However, this pandemic changed the game so I had to purchase one. I needed a simple computer, but was told this was one of the best -- they were not wrong. Everyday I find something new this does that surprises me, like receiving and sending text messages from it directly, or being able to make my television my phone screen. It's pretty amazing!! Can't wait to see what else it's capable of.

    Excellent Personal/Home Computer

    After several months of consideration, decided to buy the least expense iMac to replace my aging MacBook Air (mid 2013) as the primary computer of the house. Over all very pleased with the decision. The price point was right on and the specs were acceptable for our general purpose use. I've installed Parallels and Windows 10 to make this the ultimate personal computer setup for all uses. The only issue, which I did not realize until after the purchase was that BestBuy doesn't reward on Apple purchases! Big bummer there.

    Know What You Need

    I just bought this entry level IMac. I did a ton of research. I want to thank Dell for giving me the push to switch from Windows. A bad BIOS update killed my Dell laptop and Dell refused to help because the machine was out of warranty when it was the firmware update that caused the issue. Yes, this is confirmed fact.

    Let’s talk about this computer. I’m not doing super heavy work. Mostly documents and some photo editing. I don’t need the biggest or baddest, nor do I need the middle tier. I did move the OS over to a 500G solid state drive. The slow 1T, 5400 RPM internal drive will be used for extra storage. Boot times and apps/programs are blazing fast. The trick is knowing the work you want to do and which Mac you need to do that work. This computer meets and exceeds my work flow need. I highly recommend this computer if it will do what you need it to do. Do pick up a solid state drive and have Apple Support walk you through making it your boot and primary drive.

    M1 is great, with little bugs

    All in all, it is a great fast machine. I use it for photo editing and seems to be able to keep up as well as my RTX 2080 machine, at least in photo editing.

    Great for browsing content and Apple silicon applications!

    The good:

    + It's fast and snappy

    + MacOS Big Sur is a joy to use (IMHO)

    + You can photo edit

    + Legacy Applications work! I am even able to get homebrew working using Rosetta 2

    + Super fast on time when sleeping

    + Able to host an iMessage Server to have it on my Android device

    Some things I wasn't to fond of was:

    - I really wish the 16GB model was here. 8GB isn't enough

    - Although Rosetta 2 is great with the Legacy Intel Applications, they sometimes will freeze (only have happened 3 times in 3 weeks of everyday use) and use a lot more memory compared to the Apple Silicon apps.

    - Bluetooth connectivity to my keyboard and trackpad will sometimes disconnect. But not enough to where I am annoyed, but should be mentioned.

    I would recommend it. I think to, most of these issues are just small bugs that will hopefully be fixed in upcoming updates.

    Fast and Productive

    Really like my new Mac mini M1, it is really fast and I'm able to do all my work on it and that includes video editing with Davinci Resolve, man it was rendering a 20 mini video at 280fps and that includes some Fiarlight some audio processing plugins added, the heaving edited parts with title animations averages about 25fps unbelievable speed. Everything else works great. Note: Don't put your Mac Mini under a metal monitor stand or it will kill the Wifi and Bluetooth and you'll have problems if your using a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. I got the MX Keys for Mac and the Logitech Triathlon mouse and both of these work with Windows as well, but switching the MX keys between Mac and Windows does not work very well for me.

    8GB of ram is plenty and it only writes to swap space went using Davinci and having other programs open and it doesn't slow down, some people complain this will shorten the life of the SSD drive, but I check how long it will last if the Mini is writing to swap and the suggestion was between 10 to 12 years so probably I will be upgrading long before that happens who know.

    All the software runs great except for Cubase 11 which is un-usable BUT I know Steinberg will fix it and it should be smoking fast after that hopefully. P.S. Cubase 10.5 works from what I read on blogs. I use Logic Pro as well because Cubase and Logic are both two awesome tool and they go hand in hand for me and I love the AI drummer, I've written a lot of songs with Logic and the AI drummer and it's fantastic.

    So would I recommend the Mac mini M1 oh ya without hesitation go for it. It is a sweet, sweet machine and runs fast and cool and doesn't make any noise.

    Thanks for reading this, hope it helps you out.

    God Bless

    Good over all...

    This is my first Apple Computer. I've been looking forward to try the iOS ecosystem. And here is what I think:

    In few words: The price is really high for what you get. I have several computers and laptops and running everything from Linux to Windows, Chrome OS and now iOS. I'd say the MAC is very close to what Chrome OS is giving you but with very high price and more available options to do stuff. I've been using my Pixel book as my primary for 4 years now. With Linux support, I managed to do all the tasks I need to be done. I still use Linux (Mint) laptop and Windows (now Win 11) laptop for other reasons but really getting everything done on Chromebook.

    As for this Mac Mini, the hardware is perfectly fine. The M1 Chip is indeed amazing! I love the ARM part of it and how it handles programs and apps. The enclosure is nice Aluminum premium shape with Apple logo on it. The connectivity is not the best but you can get around with what you got. It works really quiet and fast. Sound from the box is not the best but ok! Wifi Connectivity is perfect. Range is good and working fast.

    Out of the box, I had some real hard time making it work. This was an open box item. It had some issues related to previous install or previous owner. Once system is up and running, everything is fine.

    The MAC iOS is really easy to use but also has a lot of extra information (or access to extra info) that you may not need and you might think that they need to be arranged. Sometimes it feels like unfinished OS. I think people like the OS because of its simplicity and ease of usage for everyday tasks. I'd say most apple users will get the job done using a chromebook (high end one) just fine as if they are on MAC.

    I'd recommend buying it (or any apple products) if money is not a concern. If you are tight on budget, you can always find better alternative as I mentioned.

    Apple people, please don't get mad. This was just my honest opinion...

    Cute little box, big desktop performance.

    This little box is positively amazing. I don't know what else to say about it. It's fast, it's responsive (kinda the same thing as fast, but whatevs), and, man, it just plain works. And it works well. I got this mostly as a companion device for my significantly pricier A2141 MacBook Pro, which I absolutely adore.. (I'm a grown Millenial, recently returned to college in Spring 2020, right around the time the proverbial you-know-what hit the sociological fan with coronavirus).

    I won't lie, I watch a lot of tech YouTubers, and seeing them gushing over the M1 chip did induce just -tinge- of jealously in me, especially after I forked over $2200 for the aforementioned A2141 model less than 2 weeks before Apple Silicon was announced. Don't get me wrong, though, my 16" MBP is still nicest computer in current repertoire (until I graduate and start raking in that good healthcare money, that is), HOWEVER, this little $699 box - I don't know what to say.. It almost has to be seen to be believed. It's as fast and responsive as anyone would expect, and it can handle dang near anything you throw at it. Believe it or not, this little puppy can GAME. Nothing that's gonna make the PS5 or Series X start sweating, btw, but it will run some modern titles at settings that are easy on the eyes with minimal slowdown. Emulation is fast and excellent, native MacOS games that normally require a half decent dedicated GPU look nice and run at more than acceptable screen res and frame rates. I got this mostly because I wanted a competent little emulator box to stay stationary while I've got my MacBook Pro for traveling and heavy-lifting computing tasks, but its performance astounds me at every corner.

    I've long been a Galaxy fan when it comes to smartphones, I just like that you don't have to effectively jailbreak your device to side load software that isn't officially sanctioned on those devices. With my latest phone, the Galaxy Note 20, I started to realize that these modern ARM chips really do pack a punch, and that further piqued my interest concerning M1. Now that I've got one, however, the M1 Mac Mini doesn't so much pack a punch underneath its tiny hood as it does at TKO!! This little box is serious business. $700 is a steal for the all-around versatility you get in this attractive little box. I highly doubt anyone will read to the end of this gushing rant about how excellent I find this product, but if you do, there's some photos below, showing how for just under $1000, I turned a bedroom dresser/chest of drawers into a miniature workstation using the diminutive powerhouse in question, a magic keyboard w/ numpad, a Magic Mouse 2 borrowed from my A2141.

    Overall - love it. A must buy.

    Seriously... This computer works. It exports about as fast as my 2013 Mac Pro with 64 gigs of ram in it that cost $3500+ 6 years ago... It doesn't get hot. It doesn't use a ton of energy. It is quiet. It is stable. It is fast. I was looking at stepping away from Apple and then they made this. It is great. I have purchased 4 of these and I am completely satisfied.

    The product is pretty good, just wish Best Buy would allow more customization. The Apple Store gives you the ability to add a track pad and additional ram.

    24"iMAC Apple Newest Model 2021

    I had a 12-year old iMAC and needed to upgrade. I did my research and when I read the specs on the new 24" iMAC, decided this was the perfect time to upgrade my computer. I love it and am very satisfied with my decision. It is very similar to my older iMAC, but with more bells and whistles and very user friendly. I selected the 512 GB model for maximum storage and I have 4 ports on the back which is very convenient. Great speaker sound! Another plus is that the keyboard and mouse are quickly charged from the computer instead of using batteries. The only drawback is that the ports have been upgraded for the smaller new cables and I am not able to charge my older devices from my new Mac or plug in my external hard drive because they all use the older cables with larger plugs. Overall I am thrilled and Best Buy matched the price of a competitor, so I received an excellent price.

As a full time student working from home, I’m willing to invest in anything to make my life easier and motivate me to do my best. This truly does both. The webcam is beyond clear, and looks amazing for video calls. Apple connectivity from my iPhone, to iPad, and to my MacBook is seamless. Downloads are lightning fast. I just have nothing bad to say at all about this desktop. I hope it lasts me for years to come.

    High quality display makes it worth the price

    We bought this to replace our 2012 Mac Mini that was no longer receiving updates but otherwise worked well. This iMac is a speed demon for everyday tasks. TouchID is great for purchases and quick logins. The display is better than any regular one you can buy under $700. In the pic, you can see reflections that look purple, but when the display is on, we never get a glare.

    We also appreciate that the keyboard and mouse are rechargeable. We’re over 1 month in and still not in need of a recharge. Our old Magic Mouse would use 2 batteries every week if left on.

    We’re supplementing the onboard storage with a 2TB SSD drive to hold our photo libraries. This makes the relatively small 512GB that came with it workable for us. If you have big photo libraries, research how to move them to an external drive and save the money. Just make sure it’s a fast SSD.

    Love it!

    I have never been a Mac person, but I happened to inherit an old iMac and fell in love with the sleek design and large beautiful screen. When it got too outdated to run old programs I decided to take the plunge and replace it with the newest version. It runs so smoothly and has that same beautiful large display screen. I love it!

    Amazing Computer for working from home

    I purchased this Mac Mini to replace a 2014 model. It is incredibly fast, I had no idea what I was missing. Boot time was quick, any application launches incredibly quick. I love this machine, I have 3 monitors hooked up to it. I use it for everyday working from home and it works like a charm. Highly recommend. Easy to setup, especially if you already have an Apple ID. Al of your things transfer right over

    My First Mac!

    I really love this Mac mini. It has taken me years to purchase a Mac instead of a PC and so pleased I’ve finally took the leap. I do not see me returning to a PC again. It’s very much a learning curve but well worth the time to learn. I really love how everything works together when you own different apple devices. I look forward to further exploring the Mac mini Desktop. Over time I’ll upgrade from i3 and etc. but for me as a first timer is more than enough for me to do my day to day activities, school, work, etc.

    ** I will add even though this says “mini” this is actually a good size computer. Nothing huge by all means but not tiny. I guess from the pictures online I thought this was much smaller but I was surprised to see it was much bigger than I assumed. It should fit fine on your desk with space or you can purchase wall mounts to place it underneath your desk, wall, or other places. Not sure what these are called but check Best Buy or the apple store too. Ok hope this helps someone! Wish the best!!

    Great compact Mac without a keyboard, mouse, monitor. While it is able to work with portable mac compatible (via HDMI) monitors, it was unable to directly interface with a standard dell monitor (via HDMI), nor a generic HDMI port available on a range of KVM switches to a standard dell monitor.

    Apple Mac Mini from Best Buy - May 2020

    This will be my 3rd Mac Mini over the past 10 - 12 years. I have no room for a laptop much less a bigger desktop. The on-line ordering was OK and the curbside Pick-up was OK. I think my biggest complaint about Apple & other computers is that it is so time consuming (i.e., hard) to find out how to overcome obsolete operating systems.

    Great for the non-technical family you support

    Bought this for my parents-in-law. All we ask from a device for them is to minimize the family tech support calls to us, and this does that job beautifully. Everything is plug-and-play, and pretty painless for non-savvy users. We don't have to worry as much that they'll be mobbed by malware, and quick & dirty Time Machine means we can even get them to do backups.

    Replaced 2014 Macmini with the 2018 model.

    I must say, a great upgrade from my 2014 Mac mini. Still using my 2014 for general use. I purchased the 2018 model just for media production only. I'm a singer, song writer and audio engineer, this was a great upgrade for my home studio. 6 cores make a big difference when working in media production. No more audio dropouts, working with video is very smooth. I did get the model with only 8 GB for ram which I just recently upgrade it to 32 GB, did it myself and saved $400.00. Happy with purchase !

    Very satisfied. Much better than base version

    I first purchased base version of this Mac mini - with Core i3. Although it was a good machine but it was slower than my sons HP Pavilion laptop that is much cheaper. I returned it and purchased this one. It is noticeably faster. No surprise here, I guess. since it has 6-core core i5 compared to 4-core core i3 in the base model. plus it has 512Gb vs 256 Gb in the base one. and it is just $300 more. I believe this is the version to buy if you think about purchasing Mac mini, not the base version

    Fast Mac with a few quirks

    This is my third macOS machine I’ve ever owned. I’ve been an Apple loyalist since my first MacBook Pro in 2006, and I really needed a new Mac that didn’t cost a fortune. Right out of the box, it was really snappy. The Magic Keyboard and Mouse work great with it, though I’ve had some brief mouse connectivity issues - especially if wifi is ever turned on (I normally use the Ethernet connection as an internet source). There was an issue with the display with snow on the monitor when the Mac was awakened from sleep, and my digging online has shown this to be an issue with monitors connected via HDMI. I bought an Thunderbolt to HDMI adapter, and that has seemed to stop. I had some quirky issues with macOS, but turning off FileVault has seemed to have stoped them (for now). Otherwise, it’s a great desktop that I would recommend - especially for those not wanting to spend $2k on a MacBook Pro.

    Great portable desktop!

    If you are looking for a Mac desktop but want something more portable than an iMac, then I recommend the Mac mini. I was looking for a computer for home use so I didn't burn up my MacBook Pro plugged into speakers and 2 monitors for hours and sometimes days on end. Even though I don't travel much, I like the idea that I can unplug it and take it with me easily, where it is much harder and riskier to do that with an iMac. Please know that if you want more than 8gb ram and aren't fantastic with taking apart computers, I would think about paying the extra money and getting it from apple directly. I bought the 8gb knowing it was 'upgradeable' but the truth is that any authorized apple dealer must charge you the cost of apple ram (which is >$400 for another 8gb).. The Mac mini has to be taken apart almost completely just to get to the ram. I'm happy with the 8gb and don't feel like it is slow especially with the i5 processor, but based on your needs you might want to consider upgrading to start with.

    A good first Mac device

    I purchased the Mac mini to add a Mac device to my home office to be able to better manage my Apple mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, and iPod) than I have been able to do with the Windows software from Apple. I chose the 2018 Mac mini as the RAM is upgradeable (iFixit has instructions for the upgrade) and I wanted an Intel processor for compatibility along with RAM upgradeability.

    The device has worked well and it has not been difficult to use it since it is my first Mac. The software upgrade to Big Sur was easy and I have been enjoying learning the MacOS and the Mac experience. Remote desktop access is through VNC as Microsoft RDP is proprietary, but the remote access experience works well once it is configured.

    Great compacted Mac

    Bought this for my wife because she really wanted a new Mac to teach virtually from. Couldn’t get an iMac because we already have my desktop and monitor and no where for a large all in one to fit but saw this and with my monitor having dual hdmi inputs we have both our computers hooked up and running on the same desk. This computer is so compacted that it takes up almost no space and has worked out perfectly for our situation. Down side to this Mac though is the lack of USB ports but it does have lightning ports so with a converter or a hub you can increase the number of USB ports. One major concern I have is that the computer runs really hot. Not sure if this is normal but I bought the 3 year Apple care and I’m glad I did just in case the computer overheats and causes damage to any of its components.

    Ordered better version but had to settle

    I ordered the fast i7 with 16gb RAM and 1TB drive. After the sale went through I was emailed that the order was cancelled without any explanation. I had to get on chat to find out it was sold out and they couldn't honor the purchase. Don't know how that's possible since it was available at Apple and other vender had it. However I wanted to use points and financing so I ordered this one to get me by. Wish I would've waited until the M1 came out. I hope to get 7 years out of this but not sure Apple will support that long like they will the M1.

    Good export time. Not a powerhouse though.

    I paid all that money for Fast exporting time and that’s all. I bought this in hopes that my green screen layering wouldn’t lag so much, but it wasn’t much of an improvement from the $1299 model. Disappointing considering the vast difference in price, but I am keeping because the export time is much faster considering that I have to export my entire project just to review it for video editing. I had high hopes for the price tag, definitely not the power house I thought it would be.

    Waste of money.

    Now, Macs are the trend. You know, the "top-of-the-line" type. But please do not buy them, Lenovo or Microsoft is much better. I purchased this Mac not even 6 months ago. First thing off the bat were the abundant bugs. The screensaver somehow still has the top info bar running on it, and my Mac was having issue after issue with the password bar as it kept breaking. Tech support wasn't helpful, but overall the first month or two were just fine apart from bugs. After that my Mac was a nightmare. I barely have anything on my Mac but somehow the disk is full? My computer keeps crashing and it's unresponsive 50% of the time, and let's not talk about how it closes all your tabs if you ignore the Disk Full pop-up. Barely anything runs anymore. Please don't buy a Mac for the long-term and go buy a Microsoft or Lenovo desktop. Disappointed in this piece of trash.

A replacement keyboard and mouse can't be sent separately so I would either have to pack up and send back the entire system and wait 2 weeks for a replacement or walk into a best buy and hope they have a replacement available to make an exchange.

    A Solid Machine for the Hobbyist Musician

    If you're simply looking for a nice desktop computer for your everyday needs, then this is going to do the job and then some. In terms of using it for work and play-related things, I think of it like driving a Cadillac over a Chevy. This machine will perform most any task with great speed and ease. It's an elegant piece of hardware as well, being entirely self-contained, and the keyboard and Magic Mouse both very comfy to use. The latter two stay charged for nearly a month at a time with daily use. Oh, and the 4K Retina© display is beautiful. I honestly can't imagine the new 5K being any sharper.

    I bought this computer brand new in the box one year ago. It's the first Apple product I've ever owned, and I'm impressed. I purchased it with the sole intent of using it for music production. With it, I can run Ableton Live 11 (my DAW of choice) with at least eight tracks of plug-ins and automations, as well as hardware—two MIDI keyboards and a USB interface—before it really starts to use up a lot of the CPU. I can even check out a website or watch a YouTube tutorial while I've got Ableton running, and it still doesn't lock up on me. It's impressive!

    While this certainly isn't an optimal computer for music production, housing its modest i5 3.0GHz processor, it's still no slouch! If you're a hobbyist musician like myself, it's just fine. With that said, I'm sure someday—perhaps several years from now—I'll upgrade to a more powerful model, but for now, it's really just fine for my purposes.

    As for being a used PC/laptop type of guy coming into the world of Apple, I have to say that the quality of this machine is really nice. Of course, it's also the most expensive computer I've ever bought, but hey, you get what you pay for!

    Once You Go Mac...

    I love my Apple - 21.5" iMac. I got this one as an upgrade to one that was the same size, just a smaller processor. I have slowly changed everything over from Android, Google, and other companies to where all things in my home are now Apple. This iMac has an impressive display at 4k, the Intel Core i5 (3.0GHz) is super fast, I love the fact that I have 1TB of Fusion Drive. I take a lot of pics, and I will never get this drive filled up, a least for a very long time. Maybe a little more on the pricy side but is definitely worth the extra.

    Still the best value for Apple computers

    Bought this to replace a 2011 Mac mini and I'm glad I waited. I'm using it for my work desk at home. I still use the MacBook Pro for Mobile use and setup the 2011 Mac Mini at work instead.

    It's fast enough for what I need it for. I might upgrade the memory in the near future.

    Mac Mini's still offer the best value for Apple computers.

    If you need Mac but on budget

    If you need Mac and have monitor/keyboard already it is very good choice! Yet 8gb is too small for serious work like software development, but totally enough for non memory hungry tasks. Very energy efficient device and very fast CPU at the same time. Even though i5 does not have hyper-threading you still have full 6 cores!

    VERY SMART BRICK.

    While the Mac Mini (3.0ghz 6-core, 8gb ram. That one.) does just about everything I’d intended it for, it’s pretty slow with some things (rendering vectors in Illustrator, for example) and gets cuh-razy hot. I slapped some external fans on ‘er and am upgrading the RAM myself in the near future.

    4 years in the making

    I’ve been patiently waiting for Apple to update the Mac Mini. Don’t let the mini moniker fool you. It’s got just as much power as a $5,000 5k iMac. It’s an outstanding machine at a very reasonable price point.

    First Mac I've owned, first I've used since mid 90

    I'm a developer (Windows normally), and investing effort into mobile development. I needed a Mac in order to publish applications to the App Store for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad). I'm pleased with the quality and workmanship of the Mac Mini. The last time I used a Mac with any depth was in the mid 90s, on a Mac 68040 CPU, OS 9 or something like that, so it's also nice to refresh my skill set on the basic operation of the Mac OS. This Mac mini is one "step" above the base model. So far I'm very happy with it, it recognizes everything I've plugged into it very quickly (compared to Windows 10 with a higher CPU/memory), and works flawlessly. It's very small compared to my PC, in fact I've got it set on top of my PC. I'm looking forward to learning a lot about mobile development.

    I’m happy

    My last Mac was 9 years and still working great, just too old for lastest updates and software. This thing is so fast compared to the old one!

    Great little computer with many ports

    I use to have a Mac Pro with 4 cores and 16G RAM and an after market SSD drive. Due to its age the hardware was no longer compatible with any of the updated macOS releases, so I looked for a new Mac replacement. I wanted a small foot print like the Mac mini, but the mini at that time was an old design that Apple hadn't updated in years. So I waited for the Mac mini to be redesigned and I am glad I waited as I have used the Mac mini for 3 months now and I am very satisfied with its performance. I would recommend the upgraded 6-core unit with the 256G SD drive over the 4-core unit. It is plenty fast, and I have parallels desktop running Windows 10 as a virtual machine on this new Mac mini as well. With 4 thunderbolt ports (USB-C), 2 USB 3.1 ports and HDMI port as well as an audio output, I had plenty of ports to plug in multiple monitors and external SSD drives, DVD burner, etc. The small size of the Mac mini means I don't have that large space being taken up like the old Mac Pro and I still have a relatively fast machine.

    A great little computer

    The thing to remember with the 2018 Mac Mini is that the memory is upgradeable (expert-level upgrade, though), and external drives (SSD and HDD) are viable options with TB3/USB-C.

    So, in that way, the base models of the Mac Mini are a good value (when viewed within the Apple ecosystem), especially the Core i5 model.

    I have two and I'm using them to power VTC and entertainment on a couple TVs. For that use case, no need for upgrade (they can run that easily).

    If you're planning to use them as a desktop computer (and have a monitor, mouse, keyboard already), they're great computers for running Office, web browsing, videos, etc. You can also upgrade them to be powerful workstations since you can add on pretty much anything except a faster CPU (more memory, external drives, external video card, etc), though you might look at an iMac if you're look for some power.
