Hi there, I've never posted in this forum before; I pretty much stay in the iPod touch and iPhone forums, but lately, I've been giving some real thought to making the jump to Mac. I have some questions though and I hope you won't mind helping me out with your thoughts: 1. I've been looking at the Mac Mini because of price (which is a main reason that I haven't seriously thought about switching before). It seems to have the stats of a serious desktop machine. How does it stack up? 2. Is it hard to get used to the Mac OS? I am a very proficient Windows user and I wonder if I will feel like a novice for very long on a Mac. 3. How many years, typically, do Macs "last"? With a PC they are usually way out dated by 3 years; how does Mac stand up? Thanks for your advice, I really appreciate it!
