So today I finally took my computer out and fired it up (Rev A minimac 1.42ghz)... My equipment: Computer: Mac Mini Rev A 1.42ghz Keyboard: Apple USB Keyboard Mouse: Logitech MX1000 Laser Cordless Mouse Screen: Dell 2005fpw 20" Widescreen Opening the box: This was a pleasant experience compared to what I am used to (Dell). Everything was Nice and clean and organized in a meaningfull mannor. Hooking it up: This was a fairly simple process, took about 10 miniutes, I love the DVI-VGA converter that came with the computer, and that the Dell LCD had both vga and dvi-d cables. Also, the keyboard came with a usb expansion cable. Turning it on: The start up screen was very simple to set up, quick, and helpfull. To my surprise the computer was only running 10.3.7 (can anyone tell me when that came out, along with then 10.3.8 came out?). No fear though, in the box was a Tiger DVD which i popped in. Fifty minuites later i have a fully funtional Mac Mini running Tiger (only 256mb of RAM, soon to be 1gb). Overall Impression: I love this computer, I love this operating system, I love this company. Finally a computer company that realizes that like cars, computers can be "emotional" purchases. I highly recommend Adium over iChat. Looking Forward: Does anyone know whether the RAM is user installable (will it void the warrentee). If it is, where can i get instructions? Programs to get: Virtual PC: I am doing systems programming next semester for intel based computers (non mac). Microsoft Offfice: What are my alternatives? One last question... Can i program my logitech MX1000 mouse to activate expose and dashboard with one of the buttons? If so how?
