    Those polycarbonate Minis are just awesome machines the way they're designed. All that technology neatly packed into a small package and it's so intricate. Say what you will about Apple products but they're hardware system designers are second to none.

    To me the design of the G4 Cube is even more awesome. The core slides right out of the case, and inside is a standard APG slot, upgradable CPU, and desktop hard drive. A Power Mac G4 shrunk to 1/4 the size well before small form factor desktops became popular, and even designed to be cooled without a fan. Definitely one of Apple's best designs of all time.

    Mine too, and likely to remain so a couple or three years hence!

    My father still uses his to run his home business - the little bugger does everything he needs and more :)
