LOL!!!  I swear I just speced it out yesterday with a less favorable cost/value picture.  Going from 1-2GB RAM alone seriously improves the appeal of the Mini IMO. 

Hey wait, perk did you call in a favor at Apple after I bitched about pricing?   ROFLMAO

Heh ... no, although I'll happily take credit for it  Grin

@ Nuts - yeah man, we'z vishunaries n'sh!t.

That's actually a pretty rocking little machine in that configuration. I was most taken by the new iMacs at 1199 and a 27" starting at 1699 ... that's quite a good deal for such a machine. Particularly with the iMacs and Mac Pros, RAM is really standard and cheap, so upgrading that to a full boat of ram is not that costly at all.

Hard to not consider them for desktop installations.

Looks nice: http://www.engadget.com/2009/10/20/new-imac-and-magic-mouse-unboxing-and-quick-hands-on/

That's another one worth considering since with that monitor and form factor there's nothing I know of that you could custom build to match the look - or at least within my capabilities.  I may be stuck on specs in general, but when I see great components like their monitors combined with enough RAM and CPU at a more reasonable price it changes things quite a bit 

Not sure about that mouse though Undecided

I need a new at-client's web server for some specialized apps... think I'll go with that mini just because it doesn't matter one way or the other.

I'll report what I find.

@ mouse - RARELY have I ever liked an Apple mouse. "Mighty?" Ugh. Now "Magic?" I dunno, gonna have to put my hands on it and see. I'm not much on tiny, dainty, Ikea sparse sort of tech architecture when I have to hold on to it, too big'a hands and such. But I might get one just to see.

i dont think I can get behind a mouse with buttons that dont click. That would drive me nuts.

Though, maybe an audible click or a feedback type click inside it?

i dont think that mouse will do well.
