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

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

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.

PowerMac G5

Well I've been going nuts looking at prices with the educational discount, and it's amazing how much you get discounted on the optional stuff, as well as the initial product.

my PowerMacG5 configuration

Summary
• 1GB DDR400 SDRAM (PC3200) - 2x512
• 80GB Serial ATA - 7200rpm
• ATI Radeon 9600 XT w/128MB DDR SDRAM
• 8x Super Drive (DVD-R/CD-RW)
• Apple Keyboard & Apple Mouse - U.S. English
• Mac OS X - U.S. English

Estimated Ship:
2-4 business days
Free Shipping
Subtotal $1,570.00

It's supremely excellent.

VERY Nice, Sith.
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.

iPod minis are shyte. 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.

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