Link: What Apple\'s new mini lacks in strength and stamina, it more than makes up for with its versatility -- if users have a bit of imagination. (http://www.macbytes.com/link.php?sid=20050124022738)

What a lame article that was. Why don't you just list, sequentially, all the things that you can possibly do with... um... a Computer. Because that's what it is. Despite the fact that people love complaining about the mini's slow bus speed and last generation CPU, the fact is, the specs are PowerMac specs of just a few years ago. Therefore whatever you can imagine a PowerMac of a few years ago being capable of doing, the Mac mini can probably do it to. (Barring a few things like PCI card upgrades and such other obvious things.) Sheesh you'd think people would get it. Before they made a cheap mac all the "pundits" could do was compare Quality Mac's to Cheap PCs, and somehow come up with the idea that the Cheap PCs were better. Now that Apple has released a Cheaper Mac, all they can do is compare the Cheaper Mac to the more expensive Mac. What exactly do they expect? That the Cheaper Mac will be equal or better than a More expensive Mac? Get real.

Sorry for the rant, it's not really directed as much at this particular article as it is to most of the others I've read recently.

wow. first post. neat.

Well sad article that was, and what a contrast to the recent CNET article I read yesterday...didn't think I'd say that. As poster above said, it's just an endless(10) list of what you can use a computer for, without researching the difficulties (Beowulf cluster?)...big doh:(
