    I don't get why Apple didn't include a mic jack on the mini.

    All these switchers wanting to add narration to their iMovies or sing and play on their Garageband compositions are going to be stuffed. And then they'll bad mouth Apple.

    Come on Apple. In revision B, give us audio in (as well as 512Mb)

    What do other people want to see in Mac mini, Rev B?

    I don't believe the eMac, or the iMac, and I know for sure that the iBook doesn't have audio in. There is no surprise here. If you're that desperate, buy an iMic!

    what's an iMic?

    PS Just checked - eMac and iMac both have audio line in. But you are right about the iBook.

    Well, I just learned something today - Apparently, the FP iMac got a line in when it hit 1GHz. I'm sooooo... living in the past. :rolleyes:
