I've been looking for a new Mac and settled on the Apple Mac Mini MGEN2B/A Dual Core i5 2.6GHZ 8GB 1TB Intel Iris model for home office use.

It's £569 through Apple and Currys. But only £538.80 (incl. VAT) on Viking-direct.co.uk to start with. Go through Quidco for 1% discount on Apple products. And apply the £40 discount code below.

£40 discount at Viking-direct: Q7A-40VBOXOCT

Discount is applied pre-VAT, so brings it down to £490.80 (incl. VAT), before the Quidco -1% is applied. So around £486 final price.

I did this last week with a £30 voucher before the £40 was available, and all went through fine - except the Quidco bit which I've reported (only a fiver though, but worth having). Mac Mini arrived today for under £500. Result.

8gb is a good choice as the recent models are not upgradable.

Yeah, I actually bought 8GB it as a replacement for the 4GB, 1.4Ghz model, which I found too slow for even uncomplicated tasks.

Much as I love apple, I can't say this is worth the money any more. All their desktop and laptop kit is now hopelessly out of date and overpriced compared to the competition. They need to start making some updated stuff, and fast! You could buy a very decent laptop for this price and have the best of both worlds.

Fantastic machine for under the TV. Have had the 2012 model under my telly for years now and love it.
I know, I know, the gigahertz to pound ratio isn't great, but I still think they're great realiable machines.

Can you tell me what tasks it is useful for 'under the tv'?

Take your pick, we have one under the TV which the kids use as a PC with a wireless keyboard, once their in bed it's mainly used as a great media centre running iTunes, Kodi, Amazon Prime Video, NowTV or the odd computer game, looking at photos etc

no mouse. no keyboard. no screen. unable to upgrade. expensive software. they will sell like hot cakes! hot

I know Apple are about aesthetics, rock steady OS and just getting on with work, all that good stuff, which, an iMac with multiple problems aside, has mostly been my experience with most Apple products, but... this overly-priced 2014 dual core ultrabook spec PC in a very nice tin is long overdue an update, no? I am giving heat because if people want to be part of the Apple OS/applications eco system, they don't exactly have a lot of licensed choices.

I agree with above comments, I have a mac book pro which is great being able to upgrade through two new operating systems and it's a few years old but see no reason to upgrade cost v performance boost etc. However the mac mini is now so overpriced for what it is. I agree would get a decent laptop for that kind of money. It's a £300 box for over £500 but hey it's apple. hotukdeals.com/dea…880

Is this the 2012 model or the crippled new one?
