    Hello all, I've been thinking about getting a Mac Mini for a while.
    I would like people's different opinions and thoughts about this, or if I should reconsider.

    First, let's all get this out of the way:
    Apple's Macs are expensive. They are defiantly not the cheapest pieces of technology out there. I'd love to have an iMac, but that's out of the question due to the price.

    Now, I was thinking that a Mac Mini would be a perfect solution for this...
    A little over $600.00 (Including the tax).

    My question:
    Do you think it is worth getting a Mac Mini if I cannot afford a more expensive Mac model?
    Do YOU (Yes, you reading this thread) own a Mac Mini?
    If you do, how would you comment on its performance and speed? (Opening programs and surfing the internet)

    One thing I love about Macs is the really fast internet connections (Providing you have a good ISP and connection, of course).

    Thank you for any help given.

    DO NOT GET ONE. WAIT UNTIL SEPTEMEBER. the mini is due for an update and apple is supposed to release a bunch of new macs at macworld in septemeber. so my advice is to wait. but in the end it is your choice

    I have to second what dualcorex said...the mac mini will get an upgrade so maybe the current ones will be cheaper.

    Woah, that's awesome news for me. I'll probably have about $600 by September.
    Chances are it'll be cheaper if there will be an upgraded version, or maybe a more powerful and cheaper version.

    What are the new Mac Minis supposed to be like?
    New processors?

    But to those that DO have it, what do you think about it?
