Devoto.

Anyone ordered from the UK yet?

If so, what did you order?

What system what you recommend for me, this would be my first Mac. Would use iTunes on it, other than that just surf the web/check email etc.

I'm waiting for Apple to get rid of CRT completely and focus on enhancing their Studio Displays. I'm also holding my breathe for Apple Plasma Displays *Wink, wink*

Agreed. I think they should release a 17" display running at 1280x1024, that would be cool :)

Mac mini software:

iLife ’05, Mac OS X v10.3 “Panther”, Nanosaur 2, Marble Blast Gold

The last two are games.

Personally, I think I'll wait until (a) I have a job and (b) Tiger (OS X 10.4) comes out before getting one.

You don't need a screen to know what song is playing.  Presumably you have ears?  Listen to the music.  Your brain makes a connection and you know what song is playing from the lyrics, the instruments, the tune, etc, etc.  No screen needed.

Anyway, for ?69 (UK price for the smaller capacity one) you can't really complain about the lack of a screen.

Yes I do... I can't recognize a song after listening for the first 2 seconds, I have to listen to it... and that takes time.. If I see it on a screen it's much easier and faster.

I have an RCA player now + 1 Gig SD card and it cost me approx 150$. But:

1. I have a choice of online muic stores

2. I have a screen

3. I can upgrade capacity with other SD cards

4. I'm not paying for Apple brand;))

Simple: "you don't like it don't buy it then."

It's not as if there are no other flash based players out there.....

The gpu on the mac mini is disapointing :(. But I still think I might buy one.

Obviously the iPod flash is geared towards the very low end market. You pay for less, but you get a little less. Everyone's jumping up and down over the lack of screen but that's because Apple's doing something that hasn't been thought of before. Innovation always raises some red flags at first, give this some time and then we'll see whether or not it works.

And unless you compress to radio quality you're not getting 1000 songs on that thing.

yes, agress, and the new shuffle, what a clever name.... that name basically explained why there isn't a screen and made the con to the pro

Why do they have iMovie and FCE with HD?? As far as I know, there are no HD DVD players or drives in existance yet. How can anyone produce a HD -DVD with a Mac when there are no HD DVD drives or players?

Steve put is back on the camcorder to show off the HD... and he mentioned they are awaiting Blu-ray etc to be able to burn HD content to DVD. He is starting something.
