For a long time I have been thinking about getting a mac desktop... right now I have an iBook G4 which I use for everything, literally. There is no time constraints, and this might not be happening for a long time, because of my lack of moneys, so don't worry about the new OS coming out or new chip. I am interested in the mac mini because of the size, but will have to buy a keyboard, a mouse, and probably a monitor. I don't think I will get an monitor because of the prices, unless I can get one for about $200. Is all that worth it, or would it be better to get an iMac with everything included?
