  • WTF!!! That guy has more money than sense I think. Butchering a Mac mini for less than 2 hours of battery life and a 90% drop in disk capacity seems like a huge waste of time and money to me. An iBook would have done exactly what he set ou…

  • I watched an interview with George Lucas on one of the Australian (not sure which one, I was channel surfing ), anyway, at the end he mentioned he was looking for a condo or house in Sydney (where most of episode 1, 2 & 3 studio shots were film…

  • No more gaming from me either. Back on topic: August is too soon for Rev B. The buyers who waited weeks to get their long awaited Mac mini would be mighty pissed at Apple if it was superseded two months later. I think they will (should) wait u…

  • I don't know why people make such a fuss about games on personal computers. It's usually cheaper to buy any of the major games consoles than a decent video card for a PC and the quality of games written for consoles are more often than not better th…
  • Wow I thought Douglas Adams had shuffled off this mortal coil but it appears he is alive and well and posting at AppleInsider. Sorry to have bothered you. I've taken the liberty of making the html code changes to include the forum jump at the top…

  • Once again, thanks for all your input. The points for the mini are valid. It sure is small, it's quiet, it comes in at a low introductory price and it allows the user to expand the system as their requirements change. But the eMac still wins i…
