    I have to setup an Ipad caching server. I havent booted up a Apple computer in at least 8 years. I got this little tiny box here that is supposedly a Apple computer. I have to get the software and install it but how the fuck do you even turn this thing on? I see an HDMI port but not much else. Let me see what model it is and i post it while you guys think about it.

    I use a wired USB mouse. Install software with the CD drive or USB.

    My sister has one of those, but she doesn't have an external cd drive. I use DVD/CD Sharing on my pc to import the file over to the mac mini.
