I'm currently considering a purchase of a mac mini. I currently enjoy my mac setup, but sometimes there is a need just flick my old PC back on. Lately, I've been thinking that it might be time to replace the old PC (it's actually about 7yrs old .. hehe) My needs really do not call for a high performance PC, and so I was thinking about getting one of those tiny PC cases just to have a piece of "more recent" technology. I checked out some of the prices and was shocked to see how much it would cost for me to basically build a 'back-up' computer system. The next thing that came to mind was that maybe I could just purchase a used mac mini (intel), and have it run windows entirely (since I've got a separate mac setup). Then even my "PC" will look nice with the rest of my mac setup Now I won't have to hide the "PC" in another room .. hehe I was wondering if this is possible? and if it is, is it worthwhile? how would i go about formatting the hard drive to install windows? I only plan on running windows XP on it, so I would appreciate some recommendations for specs for the mac mini as well.
