    I'm really in need of a new Mac, my iBook G4 still does what I need, but not so great in music production =P

    In any event, I don't have loads of money and as much as I'd like to buy a MBP, I'm lookin at the Mac Mini, more so now after seeing it can be upgraded beyond what apple is willing to offer. It voids the warranty but I don't care, I've been building computers since I was a kid with my dad (obviously started with PC).

    Problem is I can't find a central location about matching up CPU's or limitation and all that good stuff. Do you guys know where to point me so I can start checking prices on things in Korea to find out if it's worth the trouble?

    since youve been building pc's, maybe might consider building a hackintosh?

    as far checking prices on parts, i always use newegg

    problem with the hackintosh idea is that they mostly have problems with audio and I am using it for Audio Production... so no go there

    And again, Korea. Can't use newegg, but there are better places to buy things in Korea, I just need to know what I'm looking for.

    Don't bother making a hackintrash.

    The best you'll get out of a mini is a Core2Duo 2.33ghz, 2gb ram and a 500gb hard drive.

    Wait a little while though, the current mini is an old overpriced piece of junk.
