    This will be the first Apple product I have ever owned. I will end up dropping a core2duo in it at some point but I am excited none the less. With the talk of the mini possibly being dropped from the product line I figured it was now or never. It should be here on the 8th but my s530 keyboard and mouse wont be here until the 15th :noes:

    Congrats and someone had a mini on craigslist for $400 if you wanted one to play with.

    I have to stay out of Crabtree and Southpoint. Just can't leave without ending up in the damn Apple store.

    My partner is staying near the Crabtree mall and they had a no tax back to school sale so I had him pick it up there and ship it to me.

    Yeah this no tax weekend is making it VERY hard not to spend money. Having the urge to go pick up an extra Macbook......but must resist.

    Yes I realize that, I could have gotten a lot of things with the money but I wanted a mini. I also could have gotten it cheaper on ebay or refurbed but I choose to buy it new and at the retail store. I paid no tax on it so it was less then buying it from apple.com and it is also a business expense so I can write it off on my taxes. I am starting to feel like I bought the wrong mac to be a part of the mac shack. :hs:

    Ahhhh as long as you are happy that is all that matters. Think many including myself just wanted more out of the mini so it has left a bitter taste in our mouth.

    Now if they combined the mini and Apple TV and bump up the specs a bit........THEN I think I would be MUCH happier with it.


    Ok back to lurking in the mac shack :hsughr:

    I just feel that way because it's so dated and current machines really out perform it for only a few hundred more :hs:

    If you haven't opened it, wait until Tuesday. Apple is making an announcement. Rumor is a refreshed iMac and Mac mini.
