Its interesting the reviewer summarises with the words "But there's nothing this device particularly excels at".
Isn't this what Mac users crave? A no-frills machine that just works?
That's all i want, a very boring, very reliable machine that has adequate power. Leave the magic to me as a user, all it needs to do is support me and remain transparent. Also, for users with older Mac Pro's the Min is quite an interesting proposition, particularly at the price point.
Plus, the ability of storing it away in a safe if you're on vacation/work etc. is quite appealing from a professional POV. I dare not move my old cheesegraters as they wobble nowadays!
Heck, you could even take it with you.
