Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone has tried to use the mac mini as a portable computer. I'm a teacher about to purchase my first mac, but I'm not sure if mac is right for me since I work in an environment that is heavily PC. I was thinking of purchasing a mac mini to carry back and forth to school for a trial period to see if I can make mac work in my pc world (I would have to find, and possibly purchase, mac versions of email, mark manager, smartboard and report card programs that are used in my school board). I currently have two sets of peripherals (one at home and one at school), so all I would be carrying is the mini and powercord. I would use it for lesson planning; internet researching; music; and very light gaming, photo, and video editing. Buying a mac for $579 at the education store seems like a minimal investment to get me started. Eventually, if things work out, I would make the mini a permanent desktop at home, and buy a MBP to carry back and forth. If things did not work out, the mini would make a pretty nice home theatre computer. What are your thoughts?
