  • You know when people say, "Well, I'm happy with my model," after an update its not good. Well... I'm happy with my model. They didn't do much huh? Still plan to upgrade mine with faster processor and what not, the Core solo is a dog.

  • Maybe he means observed GUI response. I can tell you, from moving the Safari window around on my Dual 1.8 GHz G4 Power Mac that my PC and Windows would resize the window faster. I'm only assuming thats what he means. I agree. Although the new Intel-…

  • Apple is all about design, so let's look at their Apple store display to figure out the puzzle. MacBook family and Mac desktops. $1099 --- --- --- $1999 $599 --- $1299 --- $2499 $700 difference between Mac mini and iMac. $1200 difference…

  • Yeah, well maybe your new here but Apple and choices don't mix well. They haven't since I've been an Apple user (2000). What I'd like (lower cost, headless computer like Mac Pro and a Mac mini with better graphics) is not what Apple would like, caus…
  • Quote: Originally Posted by Marvin I'd rather see better graphics in the Mini before a new processor. Why use the GPU alone to sell higher end machines when they can use both the processor and the GPU? Most consumer computers in this class use …
  • Quote: Originally Posted by backtomac I don't think the mini wil ever be a gaming machine. Nor would I, did I say that? Its funny the reactions I get when I put "Mac mini" as my clan name and they say, "your using a Mac mini!?" Haha. It's not f…
  • I see a Core 2 Duo Mobile or whatever they are calling it, (Merom) and Intel's more advanced intergrated graphics. The Merom you can pop into an exisiting Mac mini yourself if your careful. Video will always be lack luster. The onboard now is Core G…
