A few of you may recall that last week I was going to go out and buy the Core Solo Mac Mini for the "other" (read: wife and kids) users in my home. Our daughter, then our son, got really sick and the trip never worked out. Next thing I knew I was traveling again for business and it simply didn't happen. So I go to the Apple Store today to make the purchase and I see something on the "returned and restocked" table. A 12" iBook G4 marked down to $699. Plus it had 1.5Gig of ram. My dilemma is obvious. Do I still get the intel Core Solo Mac Mini for $599 or do I go for the G4 that is portable with more ram for $100 more. I'm thinking I can still put the external 20" on it with full keyboard/mouse. Being new to Mac, I'm wondering how these two machines compare and what any of you might be inclined to do in this scenario. I currently have a laptop that is refreshed every two years from work, but it's a Dell and there is SLIGHT interest in being able to take the Mac mobile should it come down to the G4. But I don't want to sacrifice performance for mobility either. Thoughts?
