Response to: Just get a Mac Mini!

Not to mention that the standard Mac Mini configuration doesn't have enough memory to run OS/X at all well, so you can add in a memory upgrade to the Mac cost. And not only is the Mac Mini hard drive half the size, it's a 4,200 RPM notebook drive that is *much* slower than the 7,200 RPM Barracuda.


By the time you get the Mac Mini reasonably well configured, it's an $800 system, at least. And you're still stuck with a slow, obsolete G4 processor and a slow hard drive.
