    Kaddyuk: Thanks for the info

    I saw that new Mac on the news, I was amazed at how small it was. They showed some guy carrying one around, it's foot print didn't look much longer than the guys hand. Nice work to Apple...I guess

    I currently have a G4 iBook, and I'm probably going to buy the Mac Mini in the next 30 days. For the first time, they're offering a Mac product in Europe for fewer Euros than it costs in USD in the States (489 vs $499). It's still more expensive in Europe though, once you've done the exchange rate.

    That new software "Pages" looks promising. Apple Works was overdue for retirement.

    Now I'm thinking about an iPod. All the people talking about them made me actually look at one in Best Buy. It was kinda spiffy. Now I gotta do a ton of reading on the things. Must find out if they actually support MP3 or convert it to something else. Sony and ATRAC is a little annoying.

    The new iPod is way too small though. (Storage wise) I think a blue mini. hrmm!

The final price on the Mac mini which I want is $800, which is the 1.42 Ghz G4, Superdrive, and 512 of RAM, along with the mouse and keyboard. At 2 inches tall by 6.5 inches wide and weighing a whole 2.9 lbs, this computer is perfect for the dorm room, where space is a luxury.
    AEagle40,

    You're a good man and the fact that you drive a Jeep and use a Mac, shows that you have a lot of potential.

    iPod shuffle is to take business from the Flash MP3 players out there.

    But I'm in love with that Mac mini. It's more powerful than my 15in iMac that I'm using now. $600 and I can get the 1.42 gb processor and the 80gb hard drive. It's on my 'to buy list'.

    And yeah, Chris, you are a confused kid.

    Aldo's got it right.

    I do all of my business on a Mac. I have Excel, Word, Powerpoint on my HD as I type this. And should a program not be 'compatiable' with 'X', I just launch 'Virtual PC' which emulates a PC desktop on my Mac and I am able to use any and all PC programs. I readily admit that the Mac is not everyone's cup of tea and thats cool, I just find it annoying that people dump (sales people at Compusa, Fry's, come to mind ect..) on the Mac before ever sitting down and seriously looking at the platform, especially now with OSX. I personally know of 2 IT guys that pray that the business world does not wake up to the Mac. As one stated to me, if many of the businesses were to make the 'switch' their numbers (the IT people) would grow much smaller. I believe that I read somewhere (ZDNet, Wired, or some such publication, I'll see if I can drag it up) that 60% of IT pros go home to a Mac at the end of the day, I can only imagine why.


    My brother in Tampa was of the same opinion as you. He would sit down at a Mac for about 10 minutes and declare that "Jobs and company should be shot for polluting the computer world with this garbage". A few years later after OSX had been out for a while I thought that the new OS might sway his opinion of the Mac. So I talked him into trying my G5 once again about a year ago, again, after 30 minutes he was of the same anti-Mac mindset as he had always been and I lost our wager. Fast foward 6 months later, I visit him in Florida and what do I see in the corner of his home? Bottom line, he just got tired of the constant crashes, viruses, worms and lack of support for Redmond. So he took a deep breath and walked into a local Compusa and walked out with his new 20in iMac (I guess some of my badgering actually worked) and after spending an hour or so familiarizing himself with the OS, the plug & play' nature of the platform, he fell in love with the Mac OS. He is still using his PC for gaming however.

    Love Macs or hate em, they are here to stay much to the chagrin of the Michael Dell's of the world. Also bare in mind if it were not for Job's and the Woz's vision to take the 'GUI', the pointer (what we now call a mouse) that PARC Zerox created and develop the Mac, chances are that we might still be having this converstaion on DOS box. So at least show some respect to the guys from Cupertino

    Totally Agree. The iPod shuffle thing is not only too small, its probably easy to lose and break with its really small parts.

    Been using Macs from the get go and while I do the odd PC, there is simply no comparision. Sadly, I will have to miss tomorrow's Macworld Expo (first time in 10 years) but if rumours are true, Jobs and company may just have some goodies in store.
