I've been telling myself I want/need a Mac Pro for quite some time. I currently have a G4 mini w/ 1GB memory. Kids need a Mac. My plan was to give them my mini and purchase a Mac Pro. I basically came to the conclusion that a Mac Pro is overkill for my needs. Never a fan of the all-in-one iMacs, so that brings me back to the mini. The local Apple store has the 1.83 w/ 1GB of memory. Is 1G enough for the intel minis? Or should I order online and get 2GB? I know 2GB will allow be to run more applications at once, but I don't really run more than 3 or 4 at a time. What I'm concerned about is M$ Office under Rosetta. Wife uses it a lot. Anyone using a mini w/ 1GB and the Office tools? Or any non univerals apps for that matter. I don't want to get into a situation where I run out of memory and the mini starts paging out. My other thought was to get it locally w/ 1GB and try it out. I did upgrade my current G4 to a gig of memory, but it looks like the intel memory upgrades require more disassembly. Stock 80GB disk should be okay. After 2yrs, I still have 47GB of available space on my G4. I current have an 80GB mini stack for my OS backup and a 300GB FW HDD for video work and storage.
