His PC refuses to start up. Wants to get a Mac desktop as replacement. My dad basically uses the internet, e-mail, and a little bit of Photoshop. No music or movies, no games... nothing really powerhungry. That's pretty much it. Would I be correct in advising a Mac Mini paired up with a 23-inch display? It'd be a 1.4 GHz, 80 GB, memory would be upgraded to 512 MB, with SuperDrive. I'm thinking a Power Mac would be utter, wasted overkill, while the iMac itself... well, it's a tough choice between that and the Mini. But I think I like the packaging of the Mini & Cinema display better. My only concern is whether a top-spec Mini would be utterly powerless, even for something as benign as internet surfing. I'm guessing no, it'll do just fine. Also, is 512 MB (of DDR333...) enough for Tiger? I'm guessing the pricy upgrade to 1 GB would be overkill.
