    I want one, bad. If Apple were to make this i'd be all over it. I guess you could call it a "consumer tower", but the only real change is adding a PCI express slot.

    Maybe they'll give us something like that in the next reboot of the "consumer desktop", whether it be a Mac Mini or not. Maybe add these features:

    -PCI express slot
    -Expandable to 4GB RAM
    -160GB base config.
    -Updated process (not "upgrade", "update")
    -Hatch/door for RAM access (for goodness sake, stop making us void our warranty's, I mean, the MacBook users can do it!)

    That is not PCI-X. That is PCIe.

    And it would in no way make up for the missing minitower.

    You're right, sorry about the confusion. It is "PCIe" that i'm talking about.

    Upgrading your RAM on a Mac Mini doesn't actually void your warranty, but it could be easier. PCI is unlikely, 4 GB of RAM (well, support for), 160 GB HD, and faster processor are likely to happen with a refresh.

    I bought a Mac Mini thinking it's what I wanted, but what I needed was a professional computer...just not a Mac Pro. I need something in between that wrong break the bank. My answer came to: Mac Mini with PCIe.
