Apple Mac mini (Late 2005)

Mac mini G4/1.33 (Late 2005)

Apple Mac mini G4/1.33
Officially, the Apple Mac mini G4/1.33 does not exist, as Apple never formally introduced it. However, starting on September 27, 2005, Apple silently upgraded the Mac mini G4/1.25 to include a 1.33 GHz PowerPC 7447a (G4) processor with the AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing unit and a 512k on-chip level 2 cache, 512 MB of 333 MHz PC2700 DDR SDRAM memory, and a faster 5400 RPM 40.0 GB Ultra ATA/100 hard drive.

As with the model it replaced, it has a slot-loading 8X DVD/CD-RW "Combo" Drive (4X DVD�RW/CD-RW "SuperDrive" optional) and ATI Radeon 9200 graphics with 32 MB of DDR SDRAM. Connectivity includes DVI (DVI-to-VGA adapter provided), USB 2.0, FireWire, a headphone/line out jack, and AirPort Extreme (802.11g) but the Bluetooth was quietly upgraded to Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. A modem was not provided, but an internal modem still could be added for US$29. It still shipped without a display, keyboard, or mouse.

[34] Apple Mac mini (Early 2006)

Mac mini "Core Solo" 1.5 (Early 2006)

Apple Mac mini "Core Solo" 1.5
The Apple Mac mini "Core Solo" 1.5 features a 1.5 GHz Intel "Core Solo" (T1200) processor, a 2 MB on-chip level 2 cache, a 667 MHz frontside bus, 512 MB of 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM (PC2-5300) memory, a 5400 RPM, 60 GB Serial ATA hard drive, a slot-loading 8X single layer DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive, and an "Intel GMA950 graphics processor with 64 MB of DDR2 SDRAM shared with main memory."

Connectivity includes DVI (DVI-to-VGA adapter included) and Firewire "400", four USB 2.0 ports, combined "optical digital audio input/audio line in" and combined "optical digital audio output/headphone" minijacks, a 10/100/1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet port, and built-in AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. It lacks an internal 56k modem, but an external Apple USB Modem can be purchased for US$49.

Like the Mac mini G4 models, the internal components are cleverly enclosed in a tiny and elegant 2.9 lb, 6.5 inch square, two inch tall case with a built-in speaker and an external power supply.

The Mac mini "Core Solo" 1.5 also included an Apple Remote for use with Apple Front Row media organization software. The Mac mini "Core" systems shipped without a display, keyboard, or mouse, but numerous Apple and third-party options are available.

[7] Apple Mac mini (Mid 2007)

Mac mini "Core 2 Duo" 1.83

Apple Mac mini "Core 2 Duo" 1.83
The Apple Mac mini "Core 2 Duo" 1.83 features a 1.83 GHz Intel "Core 2 Duo" (T5600) processor, a 2 MB on-chip level 2 cache, a 667 MHz frontside bus, 1 GB of 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM (PC2-5300) memory, a 5400 RPM, 80 GB Serial ATA hard drive, a slot-loading 8X single-layer DVD/CD-RW "Combo" drive, an "Intel GMA950 graphics processor with 64 MB of DDR2 SDRAM shared with main memory", and a bundled Apple Remote.

Connectivity includes DVI (DVI-to-VGA adapter included) and Firewire "400", four USB 2.0 ports, combined "optical digital audio input/audio line in" and combined "optical digital audio output/headphone" minijacks, a 10/100/1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet port, and built-in AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. It lacks an internal 56k modem, but an external Apple USB Modem can be purchased for US$49.

The "Core 2 Duo" Mac mini models effectively are the same as the "Core Duo" models that preceded them, but as the name implies, the "Core 2 Duo" systems shipped with faster processors as well as additional RAM. The Mac mini "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 also has a larger hard drive.

All Mac mini models have the internal components cleverly enclosed in a tiny and elegant 2.9 lb, 6.5 inch square, two inch tall case with a built-in speaker and an external power supply. Additionally, all Mac mini systems ship without a display, keyboard, or mouse, but numerous Apple and third-party options are available.

Also see: What are the differences between the Mac mini "Core 2 Duo" models? How do they compare to their predecessors?
