    True true! But even if I get this I will not abandon my PC. It will live side by side. Reason being some software I currently use needs it. Same goes with Linux. So now multiple boot on my PC. But this Mac is really cool man.

    Probably just need a KVM switch that can handle keyboard and mouse. I think Apple lists one on the online store under accessories.

    Your existing monitor? The Mac mini comes with both DVI and standard VGA inputs.

    Unless u wanna toggle between your Windows (bleah) PC and Mac, get a KVM switch. But dump dat Windows. U're better off on a Mac. Honestly.

    Actually if u look hard enuff, there are Mac alternatives to certain software. I believe one of your colleagues passed u some plugins yesterday right? hehehehe....

    Darren made changes to the specs and opt for higher-end CPU.

    USD499 model is selling at S$928.

    eh? what exchange rate are you using?

    US$1 : S$1.65 approx ... making US$499 ~ S$824

    Anyway, this Mac mini would hook up to my LCD monitor (which has two inputs) and since its so small, can be placed almost anywhere on/under the desk (maybe even on top of my existing PC and with a USB/FW hub so that I can plug in peripherals easily).

    I can just about visualise the Mac mini living side-by-side with my PC ...
