I have primarily been a of guy all my life but as time goes by and my towers get old and unsupported I usually update them to Ubuntu or win7. Anyway I heard the performance of the Mac mini was pretty good. I also wanted to give OS X a shot I'm not particularly loyal to an os so I think I'll overcome the differences in software just fine. Anyway I picked up a 07 model on eBay with the following specs. 2.0ghz core 2 duo 2gb of ram and 500 gig hard drive (300 bucks). It is in good physical condition and is reported as being in perfect working condition. Was this a good buy for a Mac newbie? Spec wise I know the hardware is fine I'm not a power user for games or anything . Just web browsing iTunes and some programs.
