Is it possible to hook up 5.1 surround sound speakers to the Mac Mini? It doesn't look like there are any plugs for it. Also, are there built in speakers in the box?

I must say, I've been waiting for a way to get a mac that can run final cut and motion w/o having to spend my savings, and this is it.

I don't really care what it looks like or how it performs, but I know I'll be able to run the software I need on it, and it's affordable. congrats apple for getting my business.

1.2GHz in the Mac world does not suck! You can't compare a Pentium to a G4/G5 when it comes to MHz

Who would want one.... I mean, overpriced, made by one small company, non upgradable, and waht would be the point if it has some crappy 32MB graphics in it? Rather just get a cheap PC.

Nice Statement except,

a.) It's definitely not overpriced

b.) Apple is not a small company

c.) It's not meant to be a Gaming machine, hell, I haven't seen a sub-500 dollar gaming PC ever. If anything I praise Apple for using AGP graphics, it's much better than some pathetic attempt by Intel with their "extreme" graphics architecture.

i not really sure. Even after I have looked at it, and read all the press, I still have not made up imind.

As soon as the hoopla dies down. I will see if I can work one into ibudget.

I will still need to get an imonitor and a ikeyboard and a imouse.

I will probably start to feel like i'm part of the apple family.

If it works out long term I will get the igirlfriend a new icomputer too.

In case you dont already know, the new imini comes with:

In the Box

- Mac !mini

- Mac OS X, iLife ?05 and more

- iDVI to iVGA adapter

- iPower cable

- iElectronic documentation.

So, "i" don't know. But me does. Yes

Hell yeah, I'll be getting one! :)

That's one of the sexiest computers I've ever seen. And it's really inexpensive considering it's a Mac.

I've been a hardcore PC user for 10+ years (and at the time considered Macs inferior) but since I've bought my first Mac a few months ago I just don't feel like using my PC anymore.

I won't be but my dad will. He's so ****ed at his Dell that he bought last year. It's a 2400 or whatever the $500 one is.

I always hear him say things like I'm getting a Mac.

I told him about this one and he should get it. It would keep all my little bros. off because they wouldn't be able to install any of their "games" lol.

I think the HD's should be bigger atleast.

Currently I couldn't justify grabbing a g5 as for its lack of games although it is still an amazing machine. I will definitely be grabbing one of these to learn the OS and appreciate the beauty of its GUI that is lightyears ahead of Microsoftsf.

Looks at Dell, HP & others ... they have 40GB HDDs in their starting PCs too. So Apple's spec is on par with other manufacturers. You wont buy it even if it was 160GB, quit whining. :whistle:

wahaha, next day shipping!

Sweet ! I'm getting one after I get rid of my Xbox.
