Right, i have been reading a few threads about the intel mac minis (solo) and how it will run circles around a 2200+ athlon. Im currently a windows user using a 2000+xp athlon, with 512meg of ram. And that seems to run all the programs i use alot with any hastle. Does this mean that a solo mini will p!$$ all over my athlon? I was going to save it for a iMac (g5,17",1.7-ish w/isight) but im not too sure i want to spend an extra £200 on a machine which tecnically isnt in development anymore. If i do get a mini will need a TFT display (another reason i was gunna get a imac was because i use a 17" fat screen at the moment and it takes up too much room). Anyone know where i can get a decent apple tft display (around 17". In the UK)? So basically im asking weither its worth spending an extra £200 on a out-of-production computer or getting a solo mini? also how long will it be intill apple decide to quit software development for the g5's all together? Quick note - i did mean to put fat screen, it wasnt a spelling error!
