OK. My mom's birthday is on october 29. My dad and I want to get her a mac. Beacuse right now she is using a compaq running on 256 mb of ram. Anyways, I was thinking a mac mini with 512 of ram and built in wireless and bluetooth. So maybe the 699 model without a superdrive. But there is the iMac, but I don't think she needs that much power. Then there's the iBook but it's a tad weak for the price. She pretty much just scans pictures and goes on the internet. The eMac is to big. We have a compaq 17 incher but it looks like crap an hs a dead pixel. Maybe a dell monitor? Or an old 17 inch studio display? So should I wait till the paris expo? Is there any chance there will be a gnarly update? I just need advice on what to get her. We basically have a $1000 or so limit. -G5Unit EDIT: I would get the 599 model, it looks like they switched something in the mac mini buying area. Also maybe instead of a studio display, maybe a dell?
