    $999 for the latest Mac Mini, 3gb of Ram, 320gb HD, including Adobe CS3
    and Final Cut Studio 2?

    I know without the software its a crummy deal but I do need PS and Final Cut Express or Pro. Can a Mini handle FC Studio 2?

    What do you think?

    If you need the software its a good deal.

    However make sure it includes the original software discs, not just installs.

    sadly only CS3 comes with the discs, though I don't recall ever having to reinstall anything on a Mac, unless I get a new one of course.

    I don't think kellen meant you'd need the discs for reinstalls, but to actually prove it's a genuine copy.

    The mini can handle FCS 2. But this would be better and it has a new warranty and discs.
