i ended up speding around $1500 on my mac mini, i bought a new 17" monitor, a new wireless keyboard/mouse and a new set of speakers

now some people might wonder why i didnt just go for an imac 17".....well the cheapest (with 512mb of ram) came to around $2000 after tax and i dont have a seperate monitor. what i might do though is see how i like osx and maybe if i really like it i'll sell my mac mini to my parents and buy a dual g5

(all prices are in CND)

because not everyone wants a monitor stuck into a computer, i like to have my monitor SEPERATE from my computer. it also makes it much easier to bring somewhere.

Ya know, Students in the UK with an appropriate NUS card can get the same model for only slightly more at --> ?359.55

Only approx ?15 difference but you get more peace of mind since you're dealing directly with apple and not a seller on eB:) :)

Anyway, anyone else from the London area of the UK been down to Regents Street over the weekend? I just wanna know if the new Apple Store ( http://www.apple.com/uk/retail/regentstreet/ ) that opened last Nov had any in stock yet. If they do then I might get on the train sometime this week and pick me one :) :)

ur setup looks great but i would suggest putting the OS on the firewire drive instead of the internal drive, it will be much faster :p

yeah, i did install OSX on the firewire drive, but i'm still torn about whether to use it that way. seems like it would be annoying to make sure the external drive is on every single time i use the mini. and then when i put it to sleep, i gotta turn the drive off...and then make sure it's on before waking.

I'm undecided...

I have this pc, and I have a mac (though ym mam has taken over that) but this looks mighty nice, and if its really quiet..oh my...sold nearly.

What about the rest of you?
