    ok, i've been planning ahead, trying to figure out what to do with taxes (i know long way off, get my reshearch done early). My Wife says that, i could get another computer not to spend more than 500 -600 bucks what would be the best bang for the buck. I like the imac, means i don't have to get a screen or speakers, and if i got a mini i would have to invest in them.

    Considering that you already have a desktop PC, you could always buy a KVM and use that to hook it up to the mini that way.

    Just a thought.

    I assume we're talking about a G4 iMac.

    If you're looking at a G4 iMac or Mac Mini Intel, you'll get more bang for the buck from the Mac Mini. The issue with the iMac is that it is substantially slower then even the 1.5 Ghz Core Solo. That being said.. you can't go wrong with either. If you don't have the extra money for speakers and a screen, go with the iMac or pick up a free CRT monitor and some very cheap speakers from Craigslist.

    Let us know what you decide doing.

    A KVM stands for Keyboard Video Mouse. It allows you to use One mouse/keyboard/monitor for multiple computers. most of them you push a button and it goes to the next computer and you have full control of that PC.
    Check out monoprice or Newegg They both have a bunch of KVM and good prices
