$600 sounds like a really low price for a computer, but 1. Mac mini's used to be $500, before they went Intel 2. It still costs way too much. Check it: $599 - Mac mini: 1.83 C2D, 667MHz frontside bus, 1GB RAM (2GB max), 80GB HD, 2MB Cache, Combo Drive, Intel Graphics $599 - 20" Apple Cinema Display: 1680x1050 = $1198 For one dollar more, Apple sells: $1199 - iMac 20" (1680x1050): 2.0 C2D, 800MHz frontside bus, 1GB RAM (4GB max), 250GB HD, 4MB Cache, Super Drive, 128MB ATI Radeon, iSight, keyboard, Mighty Mouse, amplified stereo speakers, microphone, cleaning cloth (The differences from the mini are highlighted in bold.) Now sure, you can get a cheaper 20" display than the Apple one, but the iMac includes that Apple display, so... what up? Why such a vast difference in the feature set?
