Well, I am doing all the info gathering before I finally make the switch from windows. I have a few question. I am very grateful for the people in this forum, It's like having your own genius bar at your disposal. I am looking to get a mini still debating the 1.83 or 2.0. I have a few questions hopefully you guys can shed some advice. Thanks ps: I will only be using the mini for basic stuff surfing, music and watching movies.. no games. 1)forgive my ignorance but does the difference between the 2.0. and 1.83 processor or affect how well dvd movies will play? 2)is the difference between 1.83 and 2.0 worth getting? 3)Do you guys think that there might be an upgrade in macworld for mini to similar parts as the macbook? I have feeling I might wait till then before buying. 4)I need some advice on wireless mouse and keyboard..do you guys find it to work well? I mean is it as responsive as wired? I know I used to have a wireless mouse for pc ..it seemed to lag few seconds with he signal.. Its not a must but I wanted to keep my desk clean as possible. 5)I keep hearing in the forums that the mini uses a slower drive? That its better to buy an external firewire drive? 6)regarding upgrading the ram... i don't want to pay the apple prices but I am really not comfortable in doing it myself..especially after watching the video on how to do yourself....can you buy the ram seperatley and go to authorize apple dealer to do it? If so, does that void your warranty? 7)regarding speakers.. I am interested between GigaWorks HD50 and Creative GigaWorks T40 http://www.asia.creative.com/ If anyone has tried these or has had experience with this company before..please do share. I am looking for more quality sound then really loud bass boom speakers. 8)finally trying to save for apple monitor 20inch..its so expensive. Do you see any adjustment to apple cinema price to match the competition a little? Dell seems my back up..since I am kinda budget. Well thanks for your patience on this long list. ps: I am new to this forum...how do you quote someone when you want to reply? Keep messing it up, not sure which icon to use or procedure..
