Mac user Kirk McElhearn on downgrading from a MacPro to a Mac mini. From tower power to mini green machine.
It all started as the weather got warmer. My Mac Pro gives off a lot of heat, and not having air conditioning means that this computer heats up my office too much in the summer…. it’s smaller, quieter and cooler than my Mac Pro, and uses less electricity. After all these years of technical progress in computers, it seems almost illogical to use a huge tower instead of a tiny box.
I saw a drastic reduction in noise and heat when moving from a PowerMac G5 to an iMac.
