    Mac Mini !
    Hello,

    I'm planning to by a Mac mini conputer, but I have a question. Is it realy true that I can use my Logitec keyboard and trackball and my Acer screen with the Mac mini ??
    I visited the Apple website and read about the Mac mini, that is was capabel of doing this, but when I visited an Apple retailer, they didn't know anything about this. !!

    What is true !!!

    Specs:
    27" i7 iMac, 15" Macbook Pro TB, 13" Macbook Air, iPhone 6S, iPod Nano 7th Gen
    You can use any USB keyboard and mouse with your Mac Mini, as far as the monitors go you'll want one that supports a DVI or HDMI connnection. The older Mac Mini's came with a DVI connector, the new one comes with HDMI and a HDMI-to-DVI cable.

    MBP 17" 2011, 2.3GHz Intel Quad-Core i7, 8GB RAM, MacMini 2011, 2.7GHz Intel Dual-Core i7, 8GB RAM
    I use mine plugged in with the HDMI-to-DVI adapter (comes with them, you can get others, including displayport to VGA) to my Mitsubushi 65" HDTV. Sound going to my tuner for the system. For the KB/Mouse, I have the Apple Wireless KB and Magic Trackpad.

    When I first turned it on, I had it pluged into my smaller HDTV via HDMI using a Logitech keyboard and Logitech wired mouse just to get things going.

    Congrats on your purchase.
