But.... but.... it's a MAC!!!

It may be marketed as the ultimate iPOD accessory but I see more to this little chrome lovely than meets the eye. The 'macmini' (sounds like a certain fastfood restaurant offering a famous small car despised by italian police) is Apple's crack at the mini-itx market. At $499 (about ?1.27) it's cheap enough and there's no denying it looks good but it's still a Mac and it will have the pitfalls associated with that. The primary worry is everyone mistaking you for an artist ;)



The modular design of Mac mini lets you upgrade your current system to the elegance, simplicity and reliability of Macintosh. If you already own a monitor, keyboard and mouse, you can get up and running in minutes. Or choose any combination of new devices to meet your individual situation. And yes, Mac mini will take advantage of your two-button USB mouse with scroll-wheel and your favorite USB keyboard. Just plug them in.

That's right... you can use both buttons now!! WOW!

You might wanna pop over to Apple and have a little peek. After all it's not everyday that Jobs and Co release a piece of hardware without the prefix i-.

it's cheaper than any fully equipped mini itx, it's smaller than any fully equiped mini itx, and you can use it as a paper weight. The only thing I don't get is: Why the hell didn't they also add in wireless KVM plugs? Now you have this tiny machine, looking good, with cables running out of it, looking idiotic.

oooooo, I want one. In fact, I'm getting one. Ahhhhh, it brings the memories of owning an athlon flooding back, I stand here defiant against the years of torment owning this kit will bring until the day it dies.

How dare you assert that I would buy a Mac! I am an x86 whore! If someone asks me how many PCs I have, I now have to spend time counting. :/

By the way, I think it looks like a spam tin with the label peeled off. :P
