I'm looking to make the switch from a PC to a Mac.My needs are not at all great.I do alot of research on the internet , need to be able to write letters , work with spreadsheets , EMail , typical easy computor work.I am not into heavy gameing or picture or video editing.... Heck I dont even own a cell phone. I'm curious if had a Mac Mini BTO with it maxed out , would that be enough for my needs for now and hopefully at least 3 - 4 years into the future ? My current setup is an old Dell PC that I purchased Dec 1998.Windows 98 , Pentium II 450 MHz processor , 256 MB SDRAM ,17.2 GB Ultra ATA Hard Drive , 4.8 X DVD ROM Drive , 16 MB STB nVidia TNT 3D AGP graphics card , A Dell / Trinitron 19in monitor , HP Deskjet 722 Color Inkjet Printer , HP Scanjet 4100 CSE Color Scanner..... I had to dig up the old recipt to know this... a computor guru I am not ! My questions are , would these Monitors , Printer and Scanner all be compatable with the Mac Mini ? Will they all hook up to the Mac Mini ? Would the Mac Mini be a noticable improvement over what I have ? ( it works fine but am getting to the point that I cant even update browsers anymore due to insufficient processor )..... And would the Mac Mini still be usefull 3 or 4 years from now with the direction that technology is going ?... or should I set my sights abit higher up the scale of Mac's ? My appologies for all these questions , I simply am not conversant in this language. Thanks for any and all comments !
