    Well I have had my little 2Ghz Mini with 2Gb ram for just over a year..

    Well two hard drives, one memory upgrade, printer issues, keyboard issues and annoying "where has the network gone" issues I really wish that the rest of my family would ditch the PC and get a mini.. I'm fed up of these "PC Types" pestering for tech support.

    Oh, my mini? I love it! :D

    The little "pop noise" that it did have disappeared quite a long time ago, I think with the EFI update. and since then it has been proper whisper quiet. My wifes laptop is far noisier with its fan whooshing up and down when it has been on for a while. I'm not sure I have ever heard the mini's fan.

    Super dooper Apple.

    I even have a proper Bluetooth keyboard now. And for the first time in years I seem to be able to touch type with very little effort, which is great! Wish I had one sooner

    I just got my refurb 2.53GHz/4MB Mini yesterday, so I'm only at one day of ownership. So far, so good! :)

    If it holds up as well as my '09 Macbook Pro has (and I think it will), it will be a worthy investment.

    Over there....
    i have had my g4 mac mini for 4-5 years now, all it ever asked for is more memory and a bigger hdd, in that time the pc's have been through 4 motherboards (2 under 6 months old), 4 hdd's, 2 keyboards, 1 psu, at least 1stick of ram (under 1 year old), countless network problems, license problems, major virus infections (ie 20+ minutes boot time) and the hole of my hackintosh netbooks hdd disappearing

    Got mines this past summer, upgraded to 4GB RAM & 320GB (which... I may need to increase) right away. Love it to this day.

    only a month into ownership of a stock 2.26 mini.

    Really is something special about the unit, but i can't quite put my finger on it.

    Had mine 6 weeks now and everything I wanted it for has worked out perfectly. Family is talking about getting a 2nd mini for upstairs so there can be internet use late at night.

    My 1st Mini (Intel Core Duo 1.66) for nearly 3.5 years superb bit of kit :)
    Though it's now a web server, but the current Mini is only 11 months old very happy with the Mini.

    Does everything I want and the screen is matte :p

    Have had my 2009 mini for over a year now, and it still performs as awesomely as it did the day I received it.
