    I have waited for a new mini for a while now. I wanted to have the base model. which is prob going to cost 5000 NOK.

    However i got to thinking, the base mac mini, is prob going to just be a minor cpu bump, up 2.4ghz base, 2gb ram and the 320m.

    And most importantly i dont know when its coming out.

    So i got to thinking. Maybe i should get the base model macbook pro. Its got the same specs as the new mac mini (probably).

    The computer, will be stationary most of the time, but i got to thinking that next year i will start college.

    Allthough the macbook pro base, costs 10 000 NOK here in Norway, and the mac mini base 5000 NOK. I havnt decided yet. I have never owned a macbook pro, just regular macbooks.

    I guess the macbook pro gives most bang for the buck, considering its portable. All though im preety undecided

    And yes im just guessing about mac mini speccs, but thats what i think is most likely.

    aaaah the choices *tears hair out*

    I wouldn't think the base model Mini would be limited to a 2GB start. I would expect 4GB for the base.

    With that said, the only difference between the MBP and refreshed Mini would probably be portability. (Not to mention the MBP has a 13" display, Keyboard, and trackpad to suffice for the mouse.)

    It's up to you. If you already have a MacBook, you may not need portability. But keep in mind that you would need an external display, and a USB or Bluetooth Keyboard and mouse.
