    She's using an old, painfully slow, virus-laden, Gateway that is painful to turn on. The thing strains to boot up. Opening Internet Explorer...HAH! Got 5 minutes?

    Seriously, she no longer has the restore DVD, so I think I'm gonna talk her into a mac mini. Speed/power is of no issue to her, so I think the $599 model will suit her just fine.

    My only question (as I'm fairly new to macs as well) is: Will her gateway keyboard/monitor/mouse combo work? I think it's all USB (except the monitor, of course).

    Thanks in Advance

    Well, took moms to teh apple store today in Oakridge Mall, and we went home with a base model iMac. I'm posting from it right now as there seems to be trouble with my old school linksys router.

    I'm really diggin teh iMac :big grin: might have to get one of these for myself.

    The dude at the apple store was way cool too. I was gonna get hooked up with the military discount, but then I told him I'm a student (I really*am) but I attend a distance leaning program with SIU at Travis AFB. I don't exactly have a student ID. The dude took my word for it and gave me it anyway. Discount basically paid for mom's apple care. :)

    Good guys over there.
