Tough to answer this question for you. Have you used Macs before? What do you do on your PC? If I had to pick one to use day in and out, without question it would be the Mini, purely because I prefer the Mac OS. Good luck with your decision.nyprospect said:I currently have a P4 3.0 with 1gig of ram ati 9600 video card 80 gb samsung drive.windows Xp pro.Im interested in a mini but would it be wise to replace my pc with a mini.I cant afford to keep both.thanks for the advice

I second this. I would save up some more cash and try to get something with a little more power if you are going to ditch your PC. The iMacs are GREAT deals for the amount of power you get in such a small package. Remember, with the Mini you have to supply your own monitor, keyboard and mouse as well. The more you can spend on your new mac the better.jessica. said:osx = tiger.
Anyway, If you can only afford a mini and you want to replace your current machine with the mini i think that even though you don't do much, you may miss a bit of the power. I woul advise to keep saving your cash for an iMac at least. Or, get the mini and know that photoshop will run on it, but you won't really be able to game on it. Macs aren't known for gaming anyway, but a mini I would think that would be next to impossible.
How much do you think you're going to be able to sell your existing system for assuming you're going to be keeping your keyboard, mouse and monitor for your mini? If your not keeping them and are buying new what is the cost to change going to be and how close is that to buying just the mini cpu?nyprospect said:I currently have a P4 3.0 with 1gig of ram ati 9600 video card 80 gb samsung drive.windows Xp pro.Im interested in a mini but would it be wise to replace my pc with a mini.I cant afford to keep both.thanks for the advice
