    I have a Vaio FS315E laptop which has a 1.6Ghz Celeron M, an Intel 915GM and 1GB of ram. I was just wondering how much faster (if any :D) a Core Duo Mac Mini would be. I am considering buying a mac at some point but I don't think my budget will stretch to an iMac at the moment.

    A lot better, if you have the same amount of ram.

    A lot faster, and a gazillion times nicer, just because of OSX:D

    Seems still too expensive though. That's kind of close to the iMac.

    I was planning to get the MacBook when everyone was speculating it was going to come out. However my PC died in january and as the MacBook hadn't come out, I went to the Vaio instead. I'm not going to replace it yet, but I am interested in an Apple desktop.

    You cant use edu discount. Can you? Coz in case you do then the stock 1099MB will actually cost you bout 930$ only.

    I can get the Edu discount but sadly I'm in the UK and the dollar price is much more attractive. I wish Apple did a computer with the power of the iMac but without the screen because I already have a pretty decent monitor.

    Who designed the PowerBook in 1991? And was it not a team of ex-Vaio designers who worked on the MMP? :D
