Nope. USB 3.0 I consider life changing and cannot imagine having been without it.
The iMac is not even an option.
Precisely. It is very fast!
Yeah the thread starter needs to be put in irons or something for suggesting it. (a joke not for real)
I gave up waiting for a new mini and built a beast pc with windows 7 weeks ago. It cost me under 1400 usd and pretty much is close to a nMP.
Apple forced me back to windows due to slow desktop upgrades then a nMP with dual gpu's for 3k. I have given up hope a long time ago and just am posting more out of loyalty to MacRumors then to minis.
The nMac Pro Was developed for pros that can pay for it in a few weeks worth of work.
I wish they would make the GPUs optional but that isn't going to happen.
For a fast, quiet 6-core i7 Extreme DAW PC build I'm looking at about $3000 but that eliminates a HD encloser which would be another $459 from OWC.
Never, as I don't need a screen. However, as of three hours ago I gave up waiting for a Mac Mini and order parts for a Hack Mini; means I'll have to be careful with updates and compatibility, but I just don't see a Mac Mini coming before mid next year at the earliest now, and I can't wait that long.At what point are you going to give up waiting for a new Mini… and just by an iMac?

Last January! It's going on nine months since I bought mine. I suspect that it might be the last of its breed, should be OK for a couple more years.
