    Yes, I'm interested it in too as a cheap Linux box. That or I'll just get a G4 mini.

    Yes I have seen that. Its a little ironic how the site is talking about not giving Apple your money yet there are 2 mac adverts on the page...

    I believe since the article mentions "Mac Mini" the ads are targeted. So that's why we get the Apple ads.

    I don't understand how even when others copy Apple formfactors they still look so horrible! I mean, really, how can anyone screw up a small formfactor PC as much as the one pictured? :(

    It looks alot longer and has a grille on the top, not to mention all the buttons on the front.

    The grille wouldn't be TOO bad. It would annoy me in the setup I have my Mac minis in but I guess some people could live with it. But the big bluey green button thing on the front and other crap... Oh it's terrible. The colour isn't as 'quality' looking as the aluminium of the mac mini and other apple products either. I'd never buy it.

    And it cost's a lot more than a mini once you start making it spec to spec.... So what's the point?
