    Prices on new macs are pretty controlled so you'd not find too much of a difference between retail stors of at the apple store. Some stores may include an additional freebie here and there but they don't amount to much.

    Tha apple store however, has specials every once in a while on reconditioned items and educational discounts. The information is available at www.apple.com.sg at the store link.

    I personally like SGL Marketing at SLS the best, nice and friendly people there.

    By calibrated you mean after the monitor has been through Sypder/Eye-one, or what other form of calibration? I find that once the conversion is done, sometimes there is quite a significant loss of detail as well as artifacting.

    Currently evaluating a 30 day trial for C1 Pro.

    I've used the following since the early 80s...

    (i) Apple II
    (ii) Apple IIe
    (iii) Apple IIc
    (iv) Apple III (it's a giant)
    (v) Macintosh (1st generation)
    (vi) iMac Flat Panel (1st generation) => My Current workhorse

    Mac mini is very enticing indeed... iBook is also very enticing... Powerbook is even more so... My relationship with Apple doesn't seem to be coming anywhere near to the end yet...

    Default My Mac mini experience

    Well, the Mac mini arrived today, and I am now using it to type this message.
    Hooking it up was very simple - plugged in the power supply, plugged in the DVI-VGA adapter, plug in the monitor cable to the VGA adapter, plug in Microsoft wireless keyboard/mouse transmitter to USB port, check keyboard & mouse to see battery installed, plug in Ethernet cable. Press power button ... hear a very familiar Apple startup sound and a picture appears on the monitor screen ... It was a five-minute setup literally. The only thing I was worried about was the keyboard/mouse which on the PC, requires both the USB and PS2 plugs to be inserted to the PC - not so on the Mac mini, only the USB cable needs to be plugged in. Anyway, went thru the setup screens without any issue and was immediately able to access the Internet.

    Immediately launched Software Update and sucked down all the available updates - 10.3.8, Java, Quicktime, etc etc. Also downloaded and installed Firefox and Thunderbird which will probably be my default Internet and mail clients.

    Will need some time to get familiar with all the OS X interface elements. Initial observations and feelings about this are good.

    Still using Safari and Mail, Firefox is there for the bank (you shall need this plugin) and etc.

    Which banks? I thought with the latest revisions, most bank internet access problems have been overcomed. That's certainly true of my UOB account. Wasn't able to log on until about 2 months ago with the latest changes to Safari.

    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    Speaking of AppleCare, those who have made use of Apple's old policies of anything and everything also can repair/service don't take for granted you can still do that after your 1st year now.

    I had the hinges of my LCD screen changed on my 15" AL(end of last week in fact) which has passed it's 1 yr (though still on AppleCare) and Apple charged me parts and labour. Though it may say "Parts and labour covered", they've sort of snaked their way to exclude systems passed their 1st year warranty and labelled them "wear and tear".

    After speaking to the technician, apparently they've (apple) changed their parts ordering system and policies. For those in the know, you'd remember how one could easily service your system with no questions even when your system has passed it's 1 yr but still under AppleCare.

    I'm still a little cheesed I had to pay for this, eventhough the hinge is fixed I've somewhat spotted the quirks in it's designed.
