    I've finally switched today. Mac mini 1.42GHz/80GB/512MB/Combo, with iWork. I also purchased the TV adaptor just so I can take it with me on trips (semi-portable).

    I plan on testing WoW on this little beast tonight. Not expecting much, but still, that should be interesting.

    Can't wait to play with iLife and iWork, though. :D

    If you want to buy one, just wait a bit. Since I just bought a Mac mini, Apple is sure to update it in a few weeks. ;)

    That's very exciting. Have you used OSX much before? I see you've been around on these forums for a while, what made you finally switch? For me, it was the look of the iBook rather than any lack of faith in Windows. Of course, since then I've seen that I was pretty ignorant as to how an OS should actually work. ;)

    I did use OS X a few times where I used to work, but it was next to nothing.

    What made me switch was mainly iTunes, it showed me what software should be. Then, watching MacWorld streams just convinced me even more. And iLife just sweetened the deal in purchasing a Mac.

    I know Tiger is only a few weeks/months away, but I needed some presentation software (and there's no way I'd use PowerPoint). :D

    eMac/iBook/iMac are too close/due for an update, so I went Mac mini.

    Now, all I need is an external, LightScribe-capable DVD-RW drive that's not too expensive...

    Congratulations on your purchase! I suppose you already have a FW hard drive or two? As for LightScribe I think only LaCie makes one with Mac LS software, and it's about $200 USD.
