1 GB RAM + External for my Ibook, or Mac Mini?

    That is the choice I have right now, by summer time I will have enough money for either one of these combinations. I already have a monitor at home that I can bring to my apartment to hook the mini upto. Which would you think would make more sense, buying a stick of 1GB ram for my iBook and getting an external hard drive or buying a Mini and having two comps.

    Oh btw, is there anywhere I can buy a mini that isn't Intel powered anymore?

    There was an add on the top of the page that had them for $349. Not sure if thats still on the ad circle.

    Yup, check the refurb page at the apple store.

    You'll want to buy extra RAM for the Mini anyway...

    Also an external Firewire hard drive you can boot from , have a clone of your OS on, and backup your files to is a Very Good Thing no matter what machine you have.
