“‘Which Mac should I buy?’ is a question many of our readers ask,” Mark Hattersley writes for Macworld UK. “Apple keeps things fairly simple with a small range of computers, all of which are good… In this feature we’re going to take a look at Apple’s two consumer desktops and decide which is best. Which computer should you buy?”
“There’s no denying that the iMac has better technical specifications across the board. It has a faster CPU, graphics card and more storage space on the standard models,” Hattersley writes. “One surprising factor is that there are more input/output connections on the Mac mini than on the iMac. Both devices have four USB 3.0 ports, but the Mac mini also has a FireWire 800 port and a built in HDMI connection (you need to use an Mini DisplayPort adaptor on the iMac).”
Hattersley writes, “One thing that’s also worth bearing in mind is that the Mac mini is much more upgradable than the iMac. You can upgrade both the hard drive and the RAM of the Mac mini, and of course you can attach any display you want.”
