maybe they want to open it, and stick in in their kvm box? ;-)
I am one of those PC users, this means I want to fit the mac mini into my infrastructure: VGA, PS/2 keyboard and mouse (adapters would be missing), Fast Ethernet.
2. Skimpy RAM. Without a necessary factory installed RAM upgrade(expensive) the computer will run like ass right out of the box.
That would be my next dilemma. Does anyone know for certain, if I could just plug in an 512MB DIMM?
3. Measly 2 USB ports means a hub is most likely a necessity.
Yes, thats quite annoying. If you use USB keyboard and mouse, you won't be able to stick anything else into it without a hub.
Although Firewire is included, it is still missing on most of the cheap pc mainboards.
I'm also missing standard RS232 Ports, and a LineIn or Microphone Jacket.
