For the first time in a long while, I'm actually excited about the high-end Mac Mini and may pick one up. The reason is that it's as close as I've seen to a mid-range, non-iMac desktop since .... the G4 cube(?). I previously had a PowerMac 7100 back in the 1990s and loved it before bailing to Windows in 2000 to 2010. Over the last few years, anyone who wanted a desktop system but didn't want an iMac (e.g. because you already had a monitor) would have to use a Mac Pro or a hackintosh. Prior to the new models introduced this week, the Mac Minis have been woefully underpowered, but now I think they are excellent mid-range desktop computers. The high-end Mac Mini with the ATI video card looks great. Is there any reason to build a hackintosh now?
