    Hi all,

    I just got my Mac Mini 2.7 a few days ago. I wanted something for my bedroom that was smaller and quieter than the PC I had. I self upgraded to an SSD and added 8 GB ram to the computer. I bought the trackpad and the Logitech Solar keyboard.

    Loving it so far and do not regret my decision at all.

    One question I have is. I have to print documents from time to time. PDFs. The documents have both legal and regular paper sizes. On the PC there was an option to have it pick the correct paper tray to use based. I don't see that option here or maybe I am missing something?

    When you click File > Print, there is a dropdown menu that gives you access to other options:

    Yeah, I usually would create a separate thread for the problem, but was just lazy, and figured I would do it in my introduction thread. :)

    Thanks so much for your help. Happy Holiday's

    Thanks again, I had actually saved that link to my computer in the first 5 minutes I had it setup and totally forgot about it.

    Andy, it is a compact PC. seems to jam a lot into it for the size. (About the size of apple TV box.) Wireless, Bluetooth, ability for 2 HDD, HDMI, firewire, thunderbolt.

    Love it so far, my bedroom is so much cooler now. No annoying fan noises. (Had 5 in pc.)
