    ok so i really want a mac and i recon that i could get around enought money by selling some stuff right know for one, however if i wanted tell my birth day i could buy a macbook, but thats along time away.

    so i would be total gong hoo about mac mini buy i have a few issues/questions


    ok so i would be getting the cheapest one. the only problem i have is the the 1.83 ghz. currently the pc i am running as 2.8 and i dunno how much a difference it would make. there is a 2 ghz one but its $200 more and thats just 2 much.i don't really understand what ghz are but people are crazy about them for some reason

    i would problem upgrade the 1gig ram to a 2 gig. would this help make up for the 1.83 ghz? my current pc as 1gig of ram.


    i don't think its possible to upgrade ghz, well not easy like taking the top off and plugging a chip in, but idk much about ghz

    im guessing you're on your ipod because some of your sentences are pretty messed up.
    but im pretty sure ghz is the measure of the processors speed.
    the only way to upgrade processor speed is to upgrade your processor module.

    is your pc a dual core? if it is then your gonna experience BIG differences!
    If its not your gonna experience even BIGGER differences! I think if you upgrade to 2 gig you can MAYBE make up for the .2ghz

    Have you considered buying off Ebay or installing OSx86? You can run Leopard on PCs for free you know.

    1.83ghz with 2GB of ram is not to bad. That's the mini I have hooked up as my media center in my living room.

    Definitly upgrade the HD 60GB fills up fast. I have CS3 installed and it runs kind of slow but it could just be an intell isue as most other applications run decently.

    Mini's make great media centers with the right setup. But if you plan on doing more heavy things with it your better off waiting for a mac book or till you can aford to upgrade the mini a little better.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a earlier Intel Mac mini, the Mac mini is a great starter Macintosh computer if you don't need a laptop.
