I need a new computer, as mine is a bit old and on it's last legs now.  I'm really tempted to get a mac mini because they're dinky, and they look rather nice.  Thing is, they're not the cheapest, and I don't know of anyone else that has got one, so I don't know what they're like in real life.

So... has anyone got a mac mini?  Are they worth it?

A friend of mine just got one Pix and he LOVES it. He runs Windows XP Pro on it as well as OS X. Works like a charm. He never had a Mac before. It has the Intel chip in it and he's got it set up as a dual boot. It is tiny and pretty powerful and the graphics are great. The OS X takes a bit of getting used to for Windows users but I didn't have too much of a problem after playing with it for a short while.

It's messy and electrocution is often a problem.

Replace the wires for a battery.  Get it to vibrate.  Cover it with latex and problem solved.

It's okay wrack.  Just sit down by the fan and cool off while drinking an iced tea and you'll feel better soon.

What do you want to do on it little Pix? I've got the PPC version of the Mac Mini and its good for surfing the net, but can be abit slow.  I dunno what the Intel version is like, but alot of complaints about the use of onboard memory rather than the AGP card that comes with the PPC version. But, the Intel version has a remote.

Well for the most part I won't be doing anything that requires huge chunks of memory (well *shouldn't* require huge chunks of memory ) so fingers crossed that won't be a problem.

I'm liking the remote idea
