Apple Mac Mini Core Duo (1.83GHz) review: Apple Mac Mini Core Duo (1.83GHz)

Apple's warranty is average at best. You get the industry-average one year of parts-and-labor coverage and an annoyingly short 90 days of free phone support. Online help is abundant: Apple's support pages, particularly the user forums, are helpful, and you can google practically any Mac-related problem and find hundreds of other Mac fans discussing and solving it.
