    Hullo,
    Tomorrow a mac mini is being delivered to my flat.

    I have been a mac user for 3 weeks now, I currently own MBP, so the mac holds no fears for me. But what I want to know is what comes with the mini?
    Will it contain an adaptor so I can plug it into my monitor or TV?

    If it does come with adaptor/s are they for DVI, VGA, or what?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Splendid thanks, I did look on Apple's site but didn't find the but you posted.

    That is great news, I can plug it into my TV's DVI socket and then copy all my iTunes James Bond films to it.
    I can't wait to watch my movies on my big television.

    Oh actually I do have another question, is my iWorks license for one machine, or for one machine to be used at once?
    For instance can I use the iWorks install discs I bought with my MBP to install it to my mini, as I will only ever use one machine at a time so the license is only being used by it's owner at any one time.

    Software licensing is always a shady area to get into. Unless you brought the family pack then the real answer is that you can't (read shouldn't) and should purchase a new license for you mac mini. But of course that is up to you.

    Thanks for your non-judgemental reply.

    What I also meant to ask is do I need a serial key to install iWorks? My MBP came with it pre-installed and I cannot find a key anywhere on the disc cover.

    I suggest Google as this type of talk is, I guess, against the rules.:eek:

    Okay chief, I guess if you say that is the case the mods will agree with you.

    But all I want to do is install software I own on a machine that I own. I believe I have a single use license and I will only use it on one machine, at a time.

    Thanks, that was an interesting read BUT it is a EULA, not a UK law.

    So it isn't much help mate, ta anyway.

    And interestingly enough, what about this bit -
    This License does not allow the Apple Software to exist on more than one computer at a time, and you may not make the Apple Software available over a network where it could be used by multiple computers at the same time

    Does software 'exist' on a machine if that machine is turned off?
