    i bought my first mac (mini) couple weeks ago and i have to admit, i kinda like os x

    moving from a core 2 quad 8gb pc to a core 2 duo 2gb kinda sucks though, but i just upgraded to 8gb ram so hopefully it'll run ok

    haha nice. why did u decide to buy a mac mini instead of an imac? i feel like the imac is probably the best bang for its buck outta all the macs.

    he probably already has a killer monitor. Why buy something you already have?

    Good for you! I like the dock and the different ways you can switch applications.

    I too have switched over as of about 4 months ago, and I love it. I too added 8GB ram. Overkill I know, but it was a pretty good price on sale, so it was hard to pass up! I was able to get a cheap 24" monitor that I hooked the mini up to... So far it has been great!! OSX works pretty flawlessly, and I haven't come across any real issues. I am definitely glad that I made the purchase, and more than likely will not buy another PC again... :)

    reason why i got the mac mini is because it's the cheapest mac, i'm not at all familiar with mac osx but since i work in IT i figure i better get familiarize with it, so i bought one

    and also because i already have 3 22" monitors in my possession, theyre not in anyway "killer" monitors but theyre ok lol, and the mac mini is very portable!

    i had to upgrade to 8gb ram because i run multiple virtual machines so the more ram the better

    my pc is now more or less a file server since i have a 3TB raid5 attached to it

    You are the consumer the Mini was originally designed for: the switcher. Be careful...it's a gateway computer and the start of an addiction you will need to feed with ever more powerful Macs. :apple:

    How many multiple VM's are you running and what are you using if you don't mind? I am trying to decide between a mini and a pro.

    Thanks,

    Congratulations on the switch. I am proud to say that I have never owned a PC, even during the not so great years. The worst mac's have always been better than the best PC's, but thats just my opinion.

    i'm using vmware fusion, with anywhere from 1-3 instances going and 1-2GB of ram allocated to each

    This is why I bought mine a few weeks back as well. So far, I love it. I am still not 100% switched over. It's a learning machine for me right now.
