So here I sit, infront of my mac mini, a month into the switch. Its been interesting, a few minor hiccups along the way, nothing this forum didnt sort out for me - for which I am greatful. Now I must say I'm sticking to mac and all that comes with it. I find the whole GUI really friendly and kinda soothing to use. The thing is recently i've been hit with a disease. Upgraditis! Apparently its rife among young mac users?? Its a killer too, my poor wallet! My poor bank ballance! My poor credit cards! I've been thinkin about a power mac now. Something with RAW power and grunt as a main system and the mini a separate entity, networked. But the main question is - are those power macs silent? And if so, how silent on comparison to the mini? Last thing I need is a noisy machine to remind me of my bad PC days when I just wanted to slap the bitch to shut it up.
