My fathers Acer computer just crapped out, he asked me what I recommend he gets next, and I thought the mac mini. He already has a monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, etc...all he needs is the machine. He is a very basic user, just web, email, skype, light video editing in iMovie, and a little music. I am just curious if the mac mini is a good and reliable machine, I'm hoping it will last him a good 3-5 years. I got my first mac 3 years ago, and love it....I'm thinking he'll love it too because he's had to have his machine reformatted a couple of times due to viruses. thanks!
