It seems to me the Mac Mini is capable of pretty much anything the iMac is. Yes, I know the processor is a bit slower, but that doesnt bother me too much. I have a MacBook Pro, my girlfriend is getting a MacBook, and I just want to complete the collection I would like to think I am going to be doing a lot of photo and video stuff, which I know the Mac Mini is not that good for, but..... As it has stood for the past 6 months, I have been doing everything on my laptop. (Powerbook G4) I have an XP Desktop, and my girlfriend has an XP desktop that this computer would be replacing (with BootCamp/Parallels for her school work). Is it worth the extra coin for an iMac, or will a Mac Mini be fine to run fairly basic stuff, possibly some light CS work, and very rarely some FCP work. My new MBP 2.16 is gonna be my big workhorse, and the desktop will be a file server/family computer that will run Windoze. Thanks all!
