    PCs are ugly, that's why they go under the table. But the Mac Mini is cool.

    If you remove all the unnecessary stuff like the keyboard, touchpad, etc, the actual area to make a G4 computer is actually very small. This thing actually uses a laptop-type slot-loading optical drive and 2.5" HDD

    Default Update

    I ordered my Mac mini on 14 Feb and online status shows that it shipped yesterday (17 Feb) .. but still haven't received it yet - wonder where it could have gotten to. Ordered the 1.42Ghz model with 512MB memory and SuperDrive upgrade.

    Can't wait to get that little thing and start playing with it

    Congrats, anyway you should have gotten it with min RAM and snap it a 1GB stick in there, the installation is very very easy.

    but also very very expansive. the basic unit cheap, but Darren's combo is sure expansive.

    I did think about that but then in the end, just went with the easy option.

    Its a pity that the Mac dealers I approached did not want to do the memory upgrade, all saying that they will have to order from Apple directly. Thus obviously negating any possible option that I would have picked up the stock mini from them and get them to do the memory upgrade.

    And since I was getting from Apple directly, I thought that I might as well get the SuperDrive option.

    ya, but not all DDR RAM works on the mac. the mac is picky when it comes to RAM. anyway Darren, have u thought of how to utilise those USB ports? 1 for keyboard/mouse & the other for ipod. any card readers, ext drive, USB printers, etc. expansion?

    NAH... please no spread fear and misinformation here.

    Here's some fact: It needs 184-pin SDRAM DIMMs that are 2.5 volt, unbuffered, 8-byte, non-parity, and PC2700 compliant. The speed of the SDRAM devices must be rated at 167 MHz or faster.

    Min CAS supported is 2.5. Max RAM is 1GB using a 1GB PC2700 SDRAM.

    Sure, just include the airport card when ordering. Macs works flawlessly with wireless.

    And check out the new ilife (mainly for iphoto), I just plonk down s$158 on it for my ibook. Considering the fact that ilife '05 is included in the price for the mac mini, it's really a bargain.

    Now I can just use iphoto '05 with it's new adjustment feature for my snapshots and simple adjustment. Tried it out and found it so fast and simple to use that i thought it's money well spent.

    a review from a 'microsoft guy'.... sounds too negative but just another side of view... i believe for windows users who have not used mac before, there will be some hardtime to adapt to mac...
