Okay guys, so I'm currently using a Windows machine with the following specifications, and I am frankly bored of my Windows rig. AMD Phenom II X2 560 Processor @ 3.30 GHz 8 GB RAM 64 Bit Windows 7 ATI Radeon 6670 HD In my free time, I like to design websites and work on a little bit of photoshop. Off late, I've been wanting to switch over to a Mac for my designing and I am a 20 year old student, so as far as money is concerned, there is no way I can afford a MacBook. Therefore, when I saw the Mini for $600 on Apple's website, its got me thinking, is it a good machine to buy? I am not a technocrat, and whatever gadget(s) I buy, I like to use for at least 3-4 years. So I've a few questions basically, 1) The $599 model vs. the $799 model? (I have tonnes of external storage) - so the 1TB thing is not a factor for me. 2) I intend upgrading the RAM in any case to 8 GB - irrespective of whichever mini I buy. I am thinking about a Corsair RAM (1333 Mhz) 10600 chipset. Is it a good idea? 3) With the i5 + 8 GB RAM combo, while running Adobe Photoshop + Dreamweaver - will the Mini perform better than my windows rig? Now please don't hate me for coming across as a total noob - because that's who I really am when it comes to Mac Can't wait to hear your views.
