    ok, so in september, im getting extra money from my loan, and with it, im buying a 15" powerbook and a mac mini. with blue tooth, is there anyway i could transfer files wirelessly with it? i was just curious because that would be fucking awesome to go to class, use my powerbook, then come back to my dorm, and send it to the mac mini. thanks!

    you could, but bluetooth is SLOW. 802.11G is designed to facilitate that at MUCH faster speeds.

    your 15" pbook is likely goign to be a lot faster than a mini... why not just get the 1 beefy notebook?

    well i probably will end up just getting the powerbook. basically, im already going to get the 15" 1.67 ghz 1 gb ram (dont need the extra vram since im not a gamer or video editing) i think it's already beefy. but if i did get the mini, i wouldnt be able to use airport because my college is stupid and doesnt allow routers in the dorms

    here are your options:

    --Get a crossover cable and setup a network between the two computers
    --Get a flash drive and move files that way
    --airport cards in each computer and use Appletalk ( I think it works )

    1gb of ram will do just fine for your use.
