I bought a 12" Powerbook a couple of months ago. It was my first experience with the Mac OS and I fell in love straight away. After 3 months use I am realising that I'm not really using the mobility the Powerbook provides. Since I bought it, it has never left my house! I have upgraded it to 1GB RAM and also purchased an external DVD writer. I think the most intensive thing I do with my Powerbook is encoding a couple of DVDs every now and again to DivX. I use the iLife suite, mainly iPhoto and iTunes. I use NetNews Wire Lite, Adium, Skype, Gimp, OpenOffice etc. I'm starting to wonder whether buying a Powerbook is overkill. I'm considering giving up the Powerbook for a Mac Mini. I have checked out the specs and for the most part they're equal except for the Graphics card where I will be losing 32MB and support for Core Image but how noticeable will this really be? Judging from the above do you guys think a move to a Mac Mini is a good idea? Any opinions would be appreciated especially from Mac Mini users.
