    Sorry about that.I couldnt think of a good title so i thought of dave Chappelle (sp) I finally got my core duo mini 1.83 1gb.It's pretty damn good for what i do which is not much.Leopard upgrade to 1 hour and 20 minutes but it actually flew by.
    I use firefox and its great.Im also usng the color profile adobe 1998.(unreal) The only thing im worried about is spyware and viruses.i know iknow but coming from a pc i had to wear body armor.I had 4 different programs dedicated to spyare and viruses.Now i feel kinda naked.My mouse died and i was thinking of getting a mighty mouse or a razer pro.hmmm.
    I would like to upgrade to 2gb but a guy at the local shop says id risk damage to the logic board if i went with crucial or cheap ram.Yes he said that.He also took 20 minutes in explaining that my mini wont handle 2gigs.I asked him to go to the mac store on line just make sure(im thinking this guy is nuts or the store is a front and they are selling fake social security cards)Then he finally says oh ok you're right:rolleyes: mac mini is a pretty nice machine:)

    You won't need virus protection programs. Just don't enter your admin password when you're watching pr0n, and you should be fine;):p

    I think the mini can take 2GB. That guy didn't know what he was talking about.

    Give Safari a chance, even if you like Firefox. I personally like Safari, but both have their merits. Just don't prejudge one or the other.

    I wouldn't go for a Mighty Mouse. They're nice looking, but beyond that, they're not the greatest. I hate to say it, but Microsoft really does make the best mice. *runs away*

    glad you're happy! The sales guy is full of crap... I've been using after market ram for years (OCZ in my MBP)

    I don't know what to recommend you as far as AV software.... stopped using it when I stopped using my PC.

    my BT mighty mouse was a waste of money :( they really are crap.


    thanks for the tip on Adobe RGB... I do like that color profile

    enjoy your mini and fake social security card! ;)

    BTW: I just switched to safari from firefox with Safari 3.... safari 3 is much much better than the older ones... actually worth using now.

    I'm not a friend of the mighty mouse either.
    Heard only good things about MS mice...I myself love Logitech mice but beware since the drivers for mac are crap I suggest using a generic driver software steermouse which is really worth every penny.

    the corded might mouse def feels off in weight (especially now that i have the wireless version). i am happy with it, but i'm not all about clicking short cuts, i use mostly keyboard cuts. glad you're happy with your new mini i'm going to order mine from amazon (no tax and 4x points on my card) in december. merry christmas to me.
