The Device Du Jour

Much like David, I too am infatuated with the Mac Mini. You can see my comment on the matter over at noise-to-signal. You're not gonna play Windows-only games on it, you're (probably) not going to develop Windows software on it, but otherwise, there's no reason not to get one. You could probably even make a reasonable home entertainment system out of it; you can hook it up to your TV with S-Video and play movies and such.

And the fan noise...what a sweet machine that would be. I want one, and we don't even really need a new computer.


  • By the way...note that it's an extra seventy-five smackers to get the Mini up to what I would consider the minimum usable amount of RAM (512 MB). And if you want to have the DVD writer (SuperDrive--isn't that what they used to call the floppy drive in older Macs?) you shell out another hundred. STILL, this is a very nice, small, quiet machine.
