    Seriously. There is a HUGE hole in the Apple Lineup. I already have a spankin' Samsung 25.5" monitor, and I want to sell my MacBook Pro because it is overpowered for what I do and I don't need a portable too bad. I don't want an iMac because I already have a monitor and they are pretty expensive for what you get if you already have a monitor.

    I NEED an Apple desktop that is cheap (500 - 700$), has atleast a half decent graphics card (9400M) and has atleast enough processing power and specs for day-to-day use. I know the Minis right now will fit 95% of what I do, but they are way overpriced for what you get, and quite frankly I don't want a computer that is as underpowered as the Mini is right now.

    I love Mac OS X, and even though I am enough computer smart to build myself a hackintosh, I don't want to because it isn't supported therefore an update can destroy my system in seconds and I don't want to depend on something that isn't supported.

    Apple, please, just take the mini and put a glassbook's motherboard in there, and you have yourself a costumer!

    As soon as Apple either updates the Mac Mini or completely changes it, is the day I will buy another Apple computer. For now, I think I might consider a cheap PC-Tower or maybe a used intel imac.
