    Hello whoever reads this,

    I have been recently looking into buying a Mac mini.

    http://www.apple.com/macmini/

    I was only wanting to buy this if I could use a mini lcd monitor (preferably usb connection for dual monitors) I need to get a cheap, maybe 7" lcd monitor. I was inspired by this video.

    I read about people hacking the psOne 5" monitor to vga input, but I am not too good with soldering. Can anyone Refer me to a $100-$200 dollar monitor that they know of?

    I found this site, but I don't know if i want to pay $300 dollars for what I need.

    just asking. but what's the point of buying a Mac mini over a laptop, if you're getting a 7' screen?

    Well, I am not that rich seeing as im only 15. And I want a new computer that is portable, but also can be used for desktop reasons, and I wanted to make a cool sort of "micro desktop". I don't know, is it really worth it then? I saw people selling mac G4's on ebay for 125 dollars. Is that better? I want leopard on it, do G4's come with that?

    Why would you get a big monitor, if you don't mind me asking?

    G4s can't run Leopard. Get a plain laptop from Asus or something and just Kalyway a hoe.

    Well I had bad experiences with mac os for pc, I want to get it on my desktop, but I've tried like 5 different versions and all of them stall at the apple boot logo when trying to just get into the installation. And in verbos mode, I get some dependancy issues. Anyway around this?

    Here's my specs...

    Intel Pentium D 925 Processor 3.0 GHz
    1GB PC4200 533 MHz DDR2 Memory
    D946GZISSL S775 MATX Intel Motherboard
    DVDRW Dual Layer Drive
    250 GB 7200RPM 3G SATA2 Hard Drive (currently empty, I am using a 40GB hard drive for windows xp right now and want to use the 250 for mac osx)

    Any way to get it up and running man? Thanks.
