Apple Mac Mini 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Computer, Model MC270LLA


  • Plays well with others
    An incredibly compatible computer.If you already have it, chances are you can use it with Mac mini. Plug in your own display, keyboard, and mouse. Turn it on. And just like that, everything works together. You can even swap peripherals with another desktop computer. That’s one of the great things about Mac mini. You can mix and match it with just about anything
  • Mac mini comes to the big screen
    It’s easy to connect Mac mini to the biggest screen in the house — your HDTV — courtesy of a built-in HDMI port. Plug in one HDMI cable and start enjoying content on your Mac mini in brilliant HD. Like movies and TV shows from iTunes, the Internet, and your photo library. There’s also a handy control that lets you easily adjust the output on Mac mini to fill even the biggest HDTV screen. And when you just want to listen to music, you can play your entire iTunes collection through your home entertainment center, or stream it to a set of speakers in any room via an AirPort Express Base Station
  • Plenty of ports make it ready for anything
    Mac mini makes things happen. It can connect to any digital display right out of the box. In addition to HDMI, Mac mini comes with both Mini DisplayPort output and an HDMI-to-DVI adapter, so it’s ready to connect to the Apple LED Cinema Display or a third-party display you already have. You can even connect two displays to see more of your photos, movies, and files. And there’s a built-in SD card slot, which makes it easy to grab photos and videos from your digital still or video camera. Mac mini gives you ports galore: four USB 2.0 ports and one FireWire 800 port, so you can plug in your keyboard, mouse, iPod, iPhone, iPad, digital camera, DV camcorder, external hard drive, printer, and just about any other device you use
  • Souped-up graphics
    Mac mini refuses to act its size. It gives you next-generation NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics — the fastest integrated graphics processor on the market today — and speedy DDR3 memory. With 48 processing cores and 256MB of shared video memory, this graphics processor delivers up to twice the performance of the previous generation. It brings more pixel-pushing power to the latest 3D games and graphics-intensive applications. And you’ll notice a big difference when you work with high-resolution photos and high-definition video. The most surprising part? You don’t have to sacrifice efficiency for speed. The NVIDIA GeForce 320M is more energy efficient than its predecessor. All of which proves you really can do more with less
  • More memory. More oomph
    A little Mac mini goes a long way. With up to 8GB of memory, Mac mini supports twice the memory of the previous generation. So now you can run more applications at the same time. Mac mini is powered by a 2.4GHz or 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, with a superfast 1066MHz frontside bus and 3MB of L2 cache for a nice little performance boost. Which goes to show that size can be deceiving
  • Instant connection
    The latest 802.11n wireless technology is built into every Mac mini. It automatically connects to your Wi-Fi network, so you can get right down to surfing the web, printing, and streaming your music wirelessly. Bluetooth wireless technology is also built in, so you can connect accessories such as a wireless keyboard and mouse
  • Personal space
    Now you can get a 320GB or 500GB hard drive and pack in your photo libraries, movies, music, files, and more, more, more. You can also play and burn all the DVDs and CDs you want with the fast, slot-loading SuperDrive
  • DIY memory
    Thanks to a removable bottom panel, now it’s easy to open Mac mini and add memory. Just a slight twist of the panel, and you’re inside Mac mini. Simply pop your memory into the SO-DIMM slot, then twist the panel back on. And you’re done
  • On every Mac
    Highly secure and reliable, every Mac is built on Mac OS X Snow Leopard: the world’s most advanced operating system. And every Mac comes with software that lets you do more with photos, movies, and music
