I have been an AMD user for a long time, and recently switched to mac. Right now, all I have are powerpc macs because I need a higher powered computer, but can't afford a quad core mac pro. I think apple should make an AMD version of the mac mini with a phenom CPU, as it would be cheaper than the core 2 duo CPU, and the AMD motherboards are much cheaper to produce (not exactly sure why, I just know they are.) I believe that if apple were to do this, they could have a quad core mac mini for about the same price as the dual core intel. Please, let me know what you think about this.
