    If you can afford the mini, then get the mini. The iMac G4 is way out of date now and the core solo processor in the mini will feel more responsive. The iMac G4 to my knowledge does support dual monitors but in mirror mode only.

    If you already have an extra monitor for use with the mini, then get that. The iMac G4 is slightly outdated. The intel inside the mini is a lot more "future proof."
