Thanks for the link. I was looking forward to reading Dvorak's reaction. I have to say I'm a bit surprised. Basically, he's saying that if the Mac mini doesn't exhibit any kinds of heat or reliability problems, he'll have no problem recommending it to people, especially new users.Vector said:
Once this unit gets into the field and passes the tests of the real world, I'll have no trouble recommending it as a machine of choice, especially to new users. And I haven't done that with an Apple product for years.
I believe Bill Palmer is missing the point of the Mac mini.mouchoir said:Bill Palmer on his website, doesn't seem to like it at all and he loves apple.
I can kind of agree with most of what he says admittedly...
Vendors are already offering a FREE keyboard and mouse with the purchase of the Mac mini. No argument there. You can also get a low priced LCD. No argument there.jsw said:Well, I sort of agree with Palmer, and I think Apple should have definitely spent the $0.25 to include a couple of USB<->PS2 adapters.
But, had they done so, then I disagree with the rest. The mini would then be exchangeable with their old PC, they could get a monitor at 20 places within a mile of their house, and the included software would blow them away.
But I agree - a couple of adapters would have been a very good thing to add.
yes: macmall, at least, is already offering free KB and mouse (after mail-in rebate)m a y a said:Vendors are already offering a FREE keyboard and mouse with the purchase of the Mac mini.
