Has anyone seen these?
They're rather neat. For a micro computer they are rather kick ass.

Ah, looks pretty cool. :) I'd buy one, but I have no money at all, and whenever I get it, I'm quick to spend it (now atleast, trying to build up a big CD collection)

1.25Ghz
40GB
512MB RAM
$574.99

Yeah it's pretty cheap, buit, I'm also building:

Athlon64 FX-55 2.6Ghz
2GB PC3200 DDR400 RAM
250GB Serial ATA Hard Drive
Radeon X800 Pro 256MB
16x Double-Layer DVD Burner
About $2300 after taxes and shipping

It was originally about 2600 or 2500 something, but I had a 400GB Hard Drive and Radeon X800 XT Platinum in it. But If I want a Mini Mac too? I dunno.

I dunno, one of those would be great with my current rig. I'd just put it on top of my PC tower, get a KVM switch...

Sex in a box. And I'd get to reap all the benefits of music/video editing that Macs can offer with my camcorder.

Dude, star wars can only add upon the sexiness.
It can NEVER take any away.

VERY Nice, Sith. :D
Only 80 GB? I suppose you don't need that much?

Wow. It's smaller. I must have one. I cannot live without it and it's sleekness. *throws money at computer*

Hey guys, the Ipod minis are out too. They're about the same price and they only hold about 20% of what the normal ones do but, hey, they're smaller and sleeker! You better go buy a few. :eek:

It's not that the mac minis are smaller, it's that they're smaller and affordable, while still having enough power to work as a good home and business computer. It's like boxed up sex.

That's good. Zen is the way to go though. :D

Anyways, I built a computer in 2003, so I don't need to get another for awhile. :)
