    I wish they wouldn't have cut back and forth so many times during the boot.

    I liked Leo's FreeCell(?) test.

    Yep, nice!

    And they used the cheapest mini too: Core Solo w/ 512 MB RAM.

    I must admit that I am impressed with the performance of my Core Duo w/ 1 GB. Ethernet is working fine too.
    This is really taking off.

    That's it? I love all the black space. Very elegant - only outshone by the presenter's shirt.

    The latest is that working drivers have been confirmed for the Mac mini because it uses Intel integrated graphics. People are still trying to figure out drivers for the x1600 Mobility in the iMac and MBP. It's possible that they will never work because it looks like Apple used custom firmware in the x1600 that is not recognized by any of the current drivers for WinXP.
