So i took the plunge and bought a 1.25 40 GB mini, and i thought i'd*write my initial thoughts on it, but first heres a little about me. I've been a PC user for about 15 years, but the first computer i ever used was a Mac Classic II. Recently i got a job as an IT technician in a college, and i run 22 PCs, and about 20 macs (mixture of white imacs, and old dv's) - from an Xserve. First things first.. my god is that really how small it is?! Second - is it on? I cant hear anything.. my word thats quiet.. Third - registration.. took 5 minutes if that. Then quick change of my monitor resolution, and a run of software update and life is sweet. I'm still presently using the 256 mb ram, and so far its been fine! I've only used safari and msn messenger, but its perfectly usable. I guess i'll test iPhoto or something later with it, before i install my 512 crucial tomorrow Man its so pretty.. i really wanna just pull out my hd's from my pc and use them with the mac instead btw - i've never really had any problems with PC's.. i've always liked them more as i couldnt afford a mac and i built my own pc's, but i dont believe in saying one is better than the other.
