    if you want a mac clone for less, buy an apple tv for $229. hacks are available on the net, which would allow you to jailbreak it, leaving you with what is essentially a mac mini for half the price. maybe not twice the memory, but at least you won't violate the leopard license because, well, you're installing it on an apple-branded computer! and if you don't need leopard, apple tv is already tiger inside.

    besides, if we wanted clones, we'd still be on windows!

    It is not really that cheap when you count in Leopard and iLife.

    $399 - Clone
    $ 129 - Leopard
    $ 79 - iLife 08
    ------
    $607 - Total vs $599 Mac mini

    Unless you pirate Leopard and iLife.

    A critical feature it has that mini doesnt is the ability to upgrade the Video Card.
    Just for that, i think loads of people are gonna buy it.

    Problems might arise in the future during Software Update when apple decides to add something that might make this clone non-functioning.

    Any news from longbeard, is he gonna sell it?
