I'm looking for some advice as to what to get. I primarily web surf, do some downloading, and use CS2. I have a P4 3.0c with a gig of PC3200/DDR 400 ram. My computer got infected with some spyware BS last night (despite running Ad-Aware and Spybot as well as having Symantec A/V Corporate and SpywareBlaster installed) and I haven't been able to get rid of it (yet). My computer is the 4th computer within the last 3 weeks that I've witnessed get infected with a new piece of spyware and (quite frankly) I'm at the end of my rope with Windows computers and I'm about to just sell it for whatever I can get for it and purchase a Mac even if it's not a iMac C2D or MacPro like I really want. I was thinking about maybe getting a Mini because I could probably get an even trade by selling my PC for what a new Mini would cost. Would a Core Duo Mini be similar in speed to what I have now? I know the Mini is about half the clock speed, but we all know that the Pentium 4/Pentium D "Netburst" architecture is a pile of crap anyway. I was thinking - maybe having a Core Duo clocked at 1.6 would almost equal out to what I have now since the CD would (obviously) be dual core. Plus the Mini would have faster clocked ram and a faster FSB (I believe). Would the Mini suit my current (emergency 'cause I'm done with Redmond) needs? I will eventually get either a 20" or 24" C2D iMac or (preferably) the 2.6g MacPro, but I'm feeling desperate right now to chuck Windows out the frickin' door. I thought in the past about getting an older dual G4 (like a dual 1g MDD) but I can't help but think that the Mini would be a better choice for me. I also can't help but believe that despite CS2 running through Rosetta if I get a Mini, it will probably still outperform my P4 at the same tasks.
