I'm currently mac-less I've been spending the last couple of months re-evaluating my computing needs versus my electrical usage. I've also have had several machines (Both Windows and mac) at the same time. I had a Revision B iMac G5 that I sold about three weeks ago. The electrical usage came about after building a Pentium D based system that ate electricity like crazy. I have since replaced that with a Compaq laptop that has taken care of the electrical costs but my heart is with OS X. I've had a mini when they first came out (the old $499 model) and I feel that the $599 model can fill my basic needs but I have a few questions. 1) How much space is free on the 60gb harddrive? I tend to store a lot of photos and music on my systems. 2) If I buy an external dvd burner to suplement the combo drive does iLife 6's versions of iMovie and iDVD support it without a hack? 3) If I only use universal binary software and nothing that requires rosetta will the base 512mb of ram be sufficient? Thanks in advance.
