Apple Mac Mini – Dual Core i5 2.5GHz – MD387LL/A

Design release 2012

Dual-Core Ivy Bridge Intel Core i5 Performance
With an Ivy Bridge Intel Core i5 processor, this Mac mini keeps up with computers twice its size. The dual cores of the Intel Core i5 processor can run at a stock speed of 2.5GHz. The processor can also be overclocked up to 3.1GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a 3MB L3 cache, DDR3 RAM and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, you’ll be able to experience smooth and seamless multitasking
Integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000
Intel HD Graphics 4000 delivers up to 65 percent more pixel-pushing performance than the previous generation of integrated graphics. So the video you watch and the games you play are smoother and more responsive. Flipping through photo albums is a breeze. And you get the power you need to edit your HD video
Storage and Memory
This Mac mini comes upgraded from the original 5400rpm hard drive, to a super fast Solid State Drive, so you have more than enough speed to work with your photo libraries, movies, music, files and much more
Thunderbolt
Thunderbolt technology in the Mac Mini is phenomenally fast. It features two 10-Gbps channels for data transfer. That’s up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0. But beyond speed, Thunderbolt gives you unprecedented expansion capabilities. You can daisy-chain as many as six Thunderbolt devices – including two Apple Thunderbolt Displays – to a single port. And since Thunderbolt is based on DisplayPort technology, Mini DisplayPort devices like the Apple LED Cinema Display plug right in, too
USB 3.0
With USB 3.0 built into the Mac mini, you can connect your external hard drive and transfer large files in seconds instead of minutes. Every Mac mini comes with four USB 3.0 ports – with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 – and you can connect all your USB-compatible devices, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod or digital camera
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
The 802.11a/b/g/n wireless technology is built into every Mac Mini. It automatically locates your Wi-Fi network, so you can connect and start surfing the web, printing, and streaming your music wirelessly. Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology is also built in, so you can connect accessories such as a wireless keyboard and mouse
Bring Your Own Display, Keyboard & Mouse
Plug your own display, keyboard and mouse into Mac Mini. Turn it on. And just like that, everything works together. You can mix and match it with almost anything
HDMI
It’s easy to connect Mac Mini to the biggest screen in the house – your HDTV – courtesy of a built-in HDMI port. All it takes is one HDMI cable to start enjoying movies and TV shows from iTunes, surfing the web, and flipping through your photo library, all in brilliant HD. There’s also a handy control that lets you 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

Battery Life & Condition


During the assessment stage of our system we use a measure we call the 80% rule. This rule is our boundary for battery replacement. Our technicians look at the full charge capacity of the laptop vs the design capacity as well as cycle count. If this falls below what we regard as less than 80% of the original battery life we fit the system with brand new battery.

How long will my battery last?

We anticipate that the minimum battery life of your system will be above 5h of general usage.

Please note this is not guaranteed as all users use their laptops in different ways. This figure is an average taken using a wide range of systems from different years.

 

Condition Grades


 

A


Systems classified as grade A we regard as being as good as new. These systems show only the minor signs of use on the external casing. All screens are checked and free of any inconsistencies or imperfections.

 

B


Our B grade condition systems will include minor visible cosmetic wear. This could include cosmetic imperfections such as scratches, scuffs or dents to the body. None of the issues interfere with the functionality of the system.

 

C


Anything we consider as grade C has clearly visible cosmetic wear. This includes deeper scratches and/or dents in the casing. Screens may also include imperfections such as dead pixels or blemishes and if applicable this is clearly stated.

If you’re budget conscious a C grade system can be the ideal solution for those looking to save and still have all the benefits and functionality of the Mac.

 

All systems provided come in 100% full working order and with our industry leading warranty. The conditions we describe below are only in relation to the cosmetic appearance of our machines.

How much memory do I need?

Memory or ‘RAM’ is the short-term memory of your computer. Anything currently running on the computer will be using your RAM. Every safari page, word document and mail application uses a small amount. More advanced users who use professional applications will require more RAM.

Here is what we recommend:

How much storage do I need?

The amount of storage you need depends on what you plan on storing on your system. For non-professional users, we recommend 500GB as a healthy amount. Having a good amount of storage allows for plenty of space for photos, videos, documents and other data you will collect over the lifetime of the system. If you’re not an avid user of your computer, then 250-320GB can be all you need.

For professional users, we recommend increasing that amount. Once you start loading your music, samples, photos and videos, you can find that your drive will fill up fairly quickly if you’re not careful. Not to mention when you start creating projects, producing or editing and you add all the data associated. At minimum 500GB is recommend and if budget allows 1TB is ideal. In certain cases more may be necessary, if you’re not sure please contact our team.

What is an SSD?

An SSD or solid state drive is the next generation in storage. They are twice the speed of a conventional HDD (Hard Disk Drive). They also  contain no moving parts and are therefore safer and less likely to fail.

Why you would pick an SSD over a HDD;

  • – Faster load time of the system and files.
  • – High bandwidth (Allows you too load more at once).
  • – More responsive system (Applications will load quicker and perform actions faster).

Why you would pick a HDD over an SSD;

  • – More cost effective (SSDs can be expensive, especially at higher volumes).
  • – Larger sizes (You can get much larger HDDs than you can SSDs).
  • – Speed is not required (If you only use your computer for basic functions such as email or watching films the speed isn’t needed).
