I'm going to pick up a Mac mini this week when my local Apple Store gets their shipment. I was going to settle on the 1.25/40GB model but I'm wondering how much free HD space I'll have after loading Adobe Elements 3.0 and my iTunes library which is rather small at about 300 songs. Eventually I think I'll end up getting Mac Office. Why doesn't Microsoft let me buy the upgrade to Office if I have a licensed copy of Office for Windows? Full Mac Office version is $350. Apple needs to add a capable spreadsheet to iWork so I can competely rid myself of any and all Microsoft apps. So back to the original question, will 40GB be enough? I don't plan to use the Mac mini for anything more than I've said here, just email, web surfing, iTunes, minor photo editing, and letters and spreadsheets.
