Just came back from Apple Center and tried out the Mac Mini they had on display.
It's a pretty nifty machine. With the stock 256Mb it's quite usuable as a standard internet workstation (e-mail, safari and some light office work) as well as the occational game.
- Price. Way too high to induce switchers. I stand by my position in previous threads, dapat walang 3 year APP. It should be priced like an appliance. If the price is gonna stay as it is, it should at least include an Apple keyboard and Mouse or 512Mb RAM.
- Video was fuzzy even with a samsung LCD it was dim even at full brightness. The difference is kinda like what separates a ibook display from a PB.
- If you like things tidy, the mini ain't it. There's a mass of cords and stuff. Best to have a hole in your desk to route all the mess properly underneath. This is gonna be exhasperated by the fact that almost all Apple cables are white (aka prone to dirt).
- What I'm afraid of is people flocking to buy the Mini and not realize that if they're O.C. and want all Apple Stuff that it would probably be a better idea to get either an iBook or a 17" iMac G5.
