    No. I think you aren't serious about getting an Apple computer. I think anybody can afford a Mac mini if they wanted one bad enough. They could sell some stuff to afford one, but since you seem to be on the fence, I'd say you aren't serious or really have no idea what you would want a mac for.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I have no clue what you're complaining about. On another note... what grade are you in? I was a sophomore in HS and bought myself a kickass powerbook G4 400MHz. Given your apparant financial constraints, I hope you don't have a job.

    But you can't afford a Mini which is 1/3 the price of a PB.

    P.S. Get a job. :cool:

    That's kind of a harsh response. Lighten up.

    If it was at all harsh, I think it was because this thread should be in the wasteland.

    Give the fellow a break--this is probably the wrong section to post this in, but the only thing that he (she?) is complaining about is that Apple makes so many appealing products. Every time you think you've picked the one you want to buy, they release something else cool that you want, too.

    And the Mini is dirt cheap, but not everybody in high school has quick access to $500 or so. Not that they can't get it with some work (or parental begging, providing that your family isn't ok financially), but it can take a while, wich is why runninmac said the end of the summer, I assume after working some odd jobs to save up.

    I never felt like that, I buy what I need that is all. I am not trying to keep on the cutting edge of technology, since in the end its the work that matters. Bragging about technology is for teens. :)

    What I don't like is when I buy an Apple product I have to do an inspection of it, dead pixels, etc.. Since I have had some bad experiences in the past. Other than that its all been positive. :)

    The post was nothing but a quick praise for apple. Why bash the poster for it? If you don't think it should have been here, ignore it and it will work its way off the page.

    Didn't seem appropriate, seemed like something that would make a new poster not want to come back to the forum...

    We don't want that now, do we :rolleyes:

    You also need to brush up on the spelling. You won't get a job or into college w/spelling like that......... You'll be stuck using a hand me down Dell..........

    If you have a job (or had one during the summer), you should get a hundred or so from the taxman. Then there are those lake-effect GR winters... Still a lot of winter left here in MI... We should get a couple more snowstorms and I'd recommend getting a shovel and soliciting the neighborhood with an emphasis placed on the too-cheap-to-get-the-plow-service elderly. It is tax-free coin to boot. In eight weeks, you'll have a Mac Mini and a sleek physique.

    Desperate times call for desperate measures. And I'd recommend taking before and after pics of not only your pipes but also your set up - beige Dell box versus the Mac Mini.

    Seriously, if you really want this thing you need to develop a game plan and then get your thing together. $479 isn't a lot to scrounge these days.

    You know, I tried snow shoveling, leaf raking, and lawn mowing when I was a kid, and maybe I just lived in a really cheap neighborhood, but NO ONE was ever willing to give a kid a measly $5 to shovel/rake/mow

    Wow, now that's super stingy. When I mowed lawns, I could weasel between $10 and $20 depending on the size of the lawn.
