    I can't be sure, but all of the pictures of minis I've seen seem to be drawings. It's dang hard to tell with brushed metal. Is this actually a photograph, or are all mini shots drawings?

    My take is that they are ultra-photoshopped pictures. They do have qualities of both photos and drawings and I have been wondering about this too.

    However, if you want to see real photos of the mini, check out this link .

    Thanks for the link! This thing is even nice-looking upside down. I can't wait until I get mine (my dad's).

    How well could the mini outpreform my G4 733mhz Digital Audio 1mb L3 cache 1gb ram powermac ? I just bought this mac for $550 before the mini was announced :( Im not sure if it would really be great to have, over the powermac I have now...

    Before the Power Mac G5s hit the stores, I felt like all the promotional images of them looked rendered too, somehow.

    Is anyone else having problems with those pictures not being displayed? I tried it on Firefox and IE.

    The mini has a higher MHz rating on its G4, but in most other ways, your tower is probably faster or roughly comparable.

    Have a look for yourself... compare Mac mini specs to Power Mac G4 (Digital Audio) specs.

    The 1.42Ghz Mac mini will be twice as fast as the 733Mhz G4, if it had at least 512MB RAM and a faster spinning HD. Depending on what you are doing with it, I'd say at least 60%-100% faster.

    Just a couple of months ago, I sold a 867Mhz G4 for $900 not because it was slow, but because it was getting increasingly louder. I then bought a Dual G5 and its been a dream machine. I would get a Mac mini if I had another pair of hands. :)

    I agree. They have been photoshopped extensively so they look the best on the web. They photoshopped the grill holes on the G5 Towers so the holes look uniform on the web. That's one of the first things I noticed.
