First off why get the Mac Mini? Well, Duh! Its in the price range of $600 to $800 dollars and $1000 for the Mac Mini server which is by far the cheapest of Apple Macintosh so is there a reason not to buy it? In my opinion as an apple fanboy I’d say there isn’t a reason not to buy it because they added addition memory in this version and increased processor speed. It’s definitely a great buy the specs for the $600 Mac Mini are 2.26Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor (big upgrade), 2GB of DDR3 RAM Memory, 1 160GB Hard Drive (+ good amount), NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics, and an 8x double-layer SuperDrive and the new Mac OSX 10.6.1 ( .1 ** will be upgraded as Apple upgrades the OS). And the other two Mac Mini’s just get even better. Wait where is the screen well unfortunately your going to have to buy one which may take a chunk of change if you use a Apple LED Cinema Display, but you will be getting one heck of a nice screen. Or you may just want the cheap way out of it and get a PC monitor. Personally I would go with the PC monitor unless I had the money for the LED Cinema Display, and I mean I’d rather go with the Apple display but the price difference. For example the Apple 24″ Cinema Display http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB382LL/A but its a WHOPPING $900 bucks… I mean its a lil’ much but is definitely worth it for the quality. And an HP 2509m 25″ Diagonal Full HD Widescreen LCD Monitor http://www.shopping.hp.com/product/display/display/1/storefronts/NT195AA%2523ABA that is only a mere $310 bucks. Well to continue on the topic of Mac Mini’s is are there any other companies that send you pre-installed software with your computer besides the OS, I’d assume only Apple and is Apple’s customer support way better then any PC companies is I’d think yes… So what do you guys think of this device? Is it worth the price or is it just a waste of money and should just buy a uber PC Desktop for $1000 (with the monitor).
