    Ok, i got a mac mini used off ebay to hold me off till i get a iMac when they release the updated ones, then this will become my girlfriend's new toy (which she is pretty excited about)

    I installed Handbrake and openoffice and Onyx and Firefox. What other apps would you all recomend me putting on this for starters? It came with iLife 06. I will primarily be using this as my main computer. So basically an Ipod and web and anything else that tickles me so. Any recomendations?

    This is a Mac Mini g4 1.5, 1 gig ram. Love it. Can't wait to see what my new iMac is then capable of....

    Thanks! :apple:

    Oh, This is also my first Mac!

    Adium and Quicksilver are pretty good... VLC media player is nice, if you need it. Just a few I like :)

    Edit: BTW, welcome to the Mac world :p

    Depends on what you are going to be doing on it really
    neooffice
    quicksilver
    gimp
    adium

    are all essentials as far as I'm concerned
