    Well, this MacWorld Keynote wasn't satisfying... at all..

    Where's iMac, Mac Mini, Mac Pro news?!

    Now I'm just thinking... "They better have another event like "The spotlight is on desktops" or some b*llsh*t like that =_=....

    *sigh*

    No, you're not alone. Biggest. Disappointment. Ever.

    When is the next event?

    Agreed, we all knew that going in.

    I was really wanting a new Mac Mini, though.

    Am I the only one who thinks they've run out of ideas with iphoto? I mean, Events was great... but now it just seems like they're trying to tack on stuff.

    The whole iLife and iWork things sounds great... I guess...

    iMovie's stabilization thing.. if that works great, I just might go out and get the Kodak Zi6.. image stabilization was the only thing that was holding me back for an instant video solution.

    I guess I'll just wait for the "Mac Box Set" to come with Snow Leopard XD

    But I still need a new Mac Mini... I miss my Mac Mini G4 all of a sudden now..

    Why exactly do you need a new Mac Mini? You have a brand new MBP. Just get an adapter for the screen and a USB Hub for the peripherals and use your laptop like a desktop.

    Well, I have a PC desktop that keeps my family running (although we all have our own laptops)

    I was thinking of either iMac or Mac Mini to replace it... and kind of use it as the "media centre" of the house.

    Oh well :(

    they purposefully didn't say a lot in the keynote so they could save the new products for their own events later in the year, like theyve been saying they want to do. For example ive got no doubt the Mac Mini will get an update soon, but they will want to do it at their own Mac Mini press release, not on Macworlds terms.

    Sounds like a bit of a waste if you all have primary laptops (unless it's more than 5 years old). If not, put XBMC on that sucker and use it to your hearts content.

    Unless you have money to blow. Then do whatever.

    Haha, I do not have the money to blow, but we all take our laptops with us to work/school. And our PC that's hoooked up to my HDTV via S-Video... (since the desktop lacks a good HD output) is just a little uncomfortable lol.

    Besides, it'll be nice to have a small solution right next to the TV all the time. and AppleTV isn't a nice solution for us either, since I browse the web on TV on the couch sometimes... and my Wii is in my room, so.. yeah.. it's just complicated and it's best if we had a powerful Mac Mini with the main TV. lol

    What a load of crud, this Macworld sucked hard. I think a lot of folk were waiting for Mac Minis and new iMacs!

    Is Vista really that bad?

    Not really. It's not all that great, but it's a decent operating system if you don't do much beside general work, which 90% do. If you're going to do gaming though, stick with XP. Windows 7 is getting really good feedback though. I may consider unswitching if it proves to be a viable option.

    has there ever been an event that mac fans were happy about ?

    There's always people crying after every event. haha

    You guys build up your expectations due to rumors.

    I guess that's partially true, but my only wish was either:

    1) Kill the Mini completely

    2) Update the damn out-of-date computer.

    It's technology... Supposed to be up-to-date, and to be honest, Mac Mini is a huge hole in the Apple's desktop line up.

    Vista isn't all that bad actually, lol.

    I have Vista Ultimate installed on my MBPro which I'm VERY happy with.

    Specially after SP1, vista suits all my needs at the moment.

    Excellent. If it weren't for OS X being a superior OS I would've switched back to Windows years ago because I'm tired of paying for overpriced hardware.

    Is it too much for ask for a mid-sized tower with dedicated graphics and some expandability for less than a grand? It doesn't even have to be Quad-Core, just give me a nice solid system.
